Why do people ride motorcycles? If you ever get asked that question by folks or family who can well, read, here’s a good book to shoot their way. As a matter of fact, it’s a good book to read yourself, if you haven’t crossed literary paths with the likes of Melissa Holbrook Pierson, Hunter S. Thompson, Sonny Barger, Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara or Robert E. Fulton, among many others. This collected assemblage of tales is a great overview of those who ride and write about our shared passion-two wheels and all that goes with it, which sometimes has surprisingly little to do with bikes at all. Altogether, a rich and passionate body of writing. Enjoy. Edited by Geno Zanetti. (Any relation to Bubba Zanetti?) Softbound, 6"×9", 275 pp., b/w illus.
