Lester Morris is Australia's longest-serving, and probably the most published, specialist motorcycle writer in the country, with most of his peers considering him to be 'iconic', or even 'legendary'.
His first articles, on simple maintenance and safety, werer published in REVS Motorcycle News (paper) in 1968; followed for the next 50 years by test reports of new models, Classic motorcycles, race reports, and a series of humorous columns published in eighteen of Australia's top-selling motorcycle magazines.
From 1948 he spent over 20 years in the trade; his first book, "Motorcycling in Australia", published by McMillan in 1976. Lester is also a noted race commentator, often featuring as an expert motorcycle compere on 'Torque', a 1970s National TV Motoring programme.
His book, "Vintage Morris: Tall Tales but True from a Lifetime in Motorcycling" is just that, a memoir of his 'many-and-various' - and often hilarious - experiences in the fascinating mototcycle industry.
