About Tim Hanna
Tim Hanna is the author of two best-selling biographies - One Good Run, about Burt Munro, and John Britten, the biography of the late New Zealand motorcycle engineering legend. Hanna himself still rides the same Norton Commando Fastback he's owned for the last twenty years and wouldn't consider any other bike - although if he ever makes any money he might allow one of those new Nortons garage space as a backup. He is completing the restoration of a 100-year-old, 45-foot motorsailer sometime soon.
