Just For the Thrill


The Seventies has long been recognised by those who competed and those who watched, as a remarkable period for competitive motorcycling in Northern Ireland.
Packed with over 400 photographs and the memories of some of local motorcycling’s leading characters of the time, in this book Roy Harris has captured the high points and low points of the three main branches of the sport – Racing, Motocross and Trials – through the decade.
An invaluable acquisition for anyone with an interest in motorbikes, this book will take you back to a golden era, when massive sponsorship wasn’t vital for competing at the top level and huge crowds cheered on their local heros who competed, often against the best in the world, Just for the Thrill.

* Unfortunately this book is currently out of stock, however we are currently working with Roy on  “Just for the Thrill 2” which will cover the 1980s. Contact us for details.
