Poetry. Biker poet? The words don't seem to fit together. But, no so long ago, neither did cowboy poet.

Today, the biker poetry movement is alive and spreading quickly in print form, not only in the US, but all around the world.RUBBER SIDE DOWN provides a look inside this movement, not only through the poetry being written by its members, but also through contributions by established poets like Allen Ginsberg, Thom Gunn and Diana Wakoski; essays on the movement's history and evolution; and photography by noted motorcycle photographer Michael Lichter and others.

Finally Biker Poetry receives the recognition it deserves. A fantastice read for bikers, motorcycle enthusiasts, and citizens alike. A glimps into 'our world' from those who Live To Ride and Write To Live.

That's a story from a real American Biker, I rode my first 'Street Bike' when I was 13. I was hooked! that was 31 years ago, I know a little about his story, this is our story as Americans, as Bikers, as Fathers, and as real people.

This is the first ever of it's kind Anthology of Biker Poetry. Be a part of history and get a copy NOW! Great reading and an amazing example of Americana at it's finest. Find out what those leather clad highway commandos are really thinking while they motor down the road. Don't let the word poetry scare ya though, these people are the real deal. Everything from weekend warriors to 1%ers are represented here. With many thousands of miles under their collective belts there's a story for everyone here.
