Overview

Truthfully and gracefully depicting the clannish, unconventional world of leather fringes and sacred steel, The Biker Code is a perfect gift book for the merely curious, and illuminated scripture for the true disciple.

Perhaps no American subculture is as consistently fascinating and serially misunderstood as the biker movement. Both feared and lionized by the mainstream, the insular, fiercely defiant community of hardcore hog devotees is notoriously difficult to infiltrate. But here comes The Biker Code, affording a revealing, knowing, and warm glimpse of the biker lifestyle for the lifelong rider and the uninitiated alike. With fifty photographs in elegant, spare black and white, The Biker Code captures the iconoclasts, free spirits, and born-to-ride outlaws of Planet Harley. Unlike any book that has come before it, The Biker Code quietly understands and affectionately celebrates the Harley life. The Biker Code features original photographs, artwork, and quotes that honestly depict and cleverly celebrate American motorcycle culture.

Editorial Reviews

Beautifully produced, this pictorial of bikers -- accompanied by first-person quotes -- is a must for anyone with a love of the open road. The creators of the book, both artists, aren't stereotypical bikers, though both have been riding for decades: Stuart Miller, a.k.a. Zooky from Brooklyn, took these photographs over a seven-year period, and Geoffrey Moss has won Pulitzer nominations. They present vivid portraits of their fellow motorcycle enthusiasts and allow them to share their stories: among them is "Amazing Grace," who could have spent thousands on therapy to combat her depression but decided to buy a Harley Sportster instead.
