At forty years old, a successful writer, husband and father, no longer toiling on offshore drilling rigs, was Paul Carter happily nestled in the cotton wool of suburban life enjoying the fruits of his labour? Was he f**k! With his manic life left far behind and the perfect opportunity to take it easy stretched before him what else would a middle-aged, bike obsessed, man want? Yes, that's right, he'd want to be the first guy to ride around Australia on an underpowered experimental motorcycle that runs on used chip fat, wouldn't he? (Preferably without getting hit by an articulated lorry full of bridge parts along the way - ) Is he out of his mind? Quite possibly - Embark on a rollickingly funny, downright dangerous and often unhinged quest that starts on an environmentally friendly motorcycle built on a shoestring budget by students, and ends with a plan to land speed record for biofuel-powered motorcycle. Carter is at his balls-to-the-wall best: prepare to laugh out loud.
