The Last Hurrah From Beijing to Arnhem
Author(s): Des Molloy
Des Molloy and Dick Huurdeman look like the sort of guys who should be sedately steering a sleigh in a Santa parade, not riding old single-banger British bikes half way across the world through some of the most diﬃcult and remote terrain imaginable. Des's son Steve joined this intrepid pair as a cameraman and general factotum for the highs and lows of an incident-packed three-month trek from Beijing to Arnhem on 'Penelope', a 1965 Yorkshire-made 650cc Panther, and 'Dutch Courage', a 1954 Norton 600.
Was this idiocy or odyssey? Decide for yourself as you read Des Molloy's account of their adventures and misadventures. You don't need to be a motorcycle maniac to enjoy this story which reads like a long yarn over a few beers at the pub.
Prepare to be amused, excited, moved, entertained, and informed as you ﬁnd out how much of this impossible dream became a reality for our unlikely trio.
