Overview

Harley-Davidson motorcycles are the grandest name in American motorcycling, and represent the freedom of the open road, a life of rebellion, and a heritage of craftsmanship for over 100 years. In this collection, the biggest and best writings, old and new, are assembled on Harley-Davidson and their unique mystique by writers and personalities that are part of the legend, from Hunter S. Thompson to Sonny Barger, Evel Knievel to Arlen Ness, and more. Punctuated with classic images—from vintage motorcycling photos to racing and walls of death posters to pictures from biker LPs and novels—these are the stories that have helped define the Harley-Davidson myth. The tales of the company’s birth, the rise of the biker outlaw legend, and the modern-day revival of choppers, bobbers, and retro rides are all told by the best-loved sages of biker lore. With sidebars on biker movies, biker literature, and much more, this book chronicles the Motor Company’s long ride into modern-day legend.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
TampaTribune (FL), Sept. 10, 2006

“Maybe motorcycles are your thing. If so, your dream book has arrived.”

Realhog.com, October 2006

“These are the biggest and the best writings, old and new, on Harley-Davidsons motorcycles and unique mystique.”

Born to Ride Magazine, July 2007

“This book is pure entertainment that fires on both cylinders!”

Motorcycle Trader

“This is an attractive, contemporary book that should appeal as much to non-riders as it does to Harley owners and regular motorcycle riders.”

(New Zealand), Fall 2006

“You don’t have to drink the H-D Kool-Aid to enjoy the Harley-Davidson Reader. The selections on early riders illustrate our common history and the personal tales capture the elusive essence of why it is that we have chosen to ride. This is a great addition to, any motorcyclists bookshelf. Enthusiastically recommended with four-out-of-four cylinders.” – Sev Pearman, Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly.

Cycle World, February 2007

“If you like to read as much as you like to ride, get your eyes on The Harley-Davidson Reader.

RPM for Truckers, November 2006

“One of those rare books you never want to end. You won’t regret buying this one.”

Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly
