Product description

Review

"Rich with personal experience and deep with knowledge of motorcycles since their first invention, "Live to Ride" brings home the full rush of the need for speed." --Madison Smartt Bell, author of "All Souls' Rising "and "Devil's Dream" "Enjoyable and informative--one of the best book on the topic in years ... ["Live to Ride"] captures the obsessive excitement of motorcycle culture with enough verve to make nonriders understand, and jealous." --"Kirkus" "If it involves a motorcycle, Wayne Johnson has it covered...[his] passion for riding is unbridled, and his prose sometimes sings like the smooth engine of a Ducati." --"Publishers Weekly" "A marvelously entertaining and masterfully written ode to the many joys of two wheeled motorized transportation...This very special book transcends its seemingly narrow subject matter to touch the pulse of life in modern America." --"Booklist "(starred review) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
