I read part of this story in Bike Magazine last year.  Mat (not Max!) Oxley 
wrote it and it concerns a factory MZ rider who defected following a crash 
in the Isle of Man TT.  The magazine story was good.  I imagine the book is 
at least as entertaining.  Does anyone else on the list read Bike?  The 
quality of writing and the sense of humor are fantastic!  I wish I didn't 
have to pay so much for it, but it beats the crap out of the domestic rags. 
Thank goodness for the Barnes & Noble 10% discount!

I received this ad from a local store. It will be available here in
November for about $27, so I'll wait. It's available in the States now
from Amazon.
The motorcycle company was Suzuki.
