Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you dream of a pie and coffee breakfast in a back road diner? Know what it's like to fix a bike with bungee cords and electrician's tape? Live for the roar of your engine and the wind on your face? A side-cracking companion volume to Sit Down, Shut Up & Hang On: A Biker's Guide to Life, this collection of biker's wisdom is sure to entertain you with its attitude and insight into life, the road, and life on the road. Whether or not you ride a motorcycle, you'll recognize the black leather and heart of gold beneath it in these pages. A few bikerisms: Sometimes the journey ain't about how fast you get there. Sometimes it is. Never sneeze inside a full-face helmet. Never let workin' get in the way of ridin' Whatever it is, go around it. You can't tell a rock from cotton candy at sixty miles per hour.

Synopsis:

Dreaming of hot pie and coffee at a favorite back road diner?

Know what it's like to fix a bike with bungee cords and electrician's tape?

Been to every smoky roadside bar between here and Sturgis?

A side-cracking companion volume to the best-selling Sit Down, Shut Up & Hang On : A Biker's Guide to Life, this brand new collection of biker wisdom kicks it up with a hundred miles worth of new quotes and quips, plenty of slick black wisdom, and intoxicating humor that goes down smooth after a long day on the highway:

There should always be more miles on your bike than your car.

The five food groups of motorcycling: gas, oil, nicotine, caffeine, and beer.

Speed costs money. How fast is your wallet?

In motorcycling, the good guys have names like Pig, Grizzly, Horseface, and Slammer.

If you want to be treated like a badass, you have to BE a badass. If you're trying to BE a badass, don't be surprised at how people treat you.

The bond between bikers has little to do with motorcycles-its beer.

. Never stop a fistfight unless it's getting too close to the bikes.
