Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is equal parts true grit, road grit, and grits and gravy. Consume and enjoy! Ever been out of gas on a lonely country road? Ever seen a Rocky Mountain sunrise through the spokes of a bike? Ever had to depend on your own skill and determination just to get from here to there? Both hilarious and insightful, this collection of one-liners relates not only to motorcycling but more broadly to life. It represents a philosophy that will be instantly recognizable whether or not you ride a motorcycle. A few bikerisms: Two-lane blacktop isn't a highway--it's an attitude. Whatever it is, it's better done in the wind. Bikes don't leak, they mark their territory. The twisties--not the superslabs--separate the bikers from the squids.
