HALF A STEP AHEAD is a personal and practical guide thats accessible enough to encourage a novice, yet sufficiently technical to offer insights of value to even the most practised scooter mechanic.Though things seldom go according to the authors plan, whats most important (as he discovers) is learning to enjoy the ride.
