Told a true story without telling too much
Excellent read. Really enjoyed the story.
This is a great read for anyone who has ever ridden a bike and has experienced the thrill and freedom of the open road. The stories of the brotherhood of the club members are both funny and poignant as the author tells a "no holds barred" account of the true biker life.
