The Razors Edge: The Sport Rider Stories by Jeff Hughes

Riding a motorcycle at speed invites one of life's most profound experiences. Living as it does in that narrow space between danger and exultation, a fast motorcycle represents one of modern life's last anchors to something ancient and timeless. Done well, riding a fast bike on a good road holds the power to put a rider in a state of exalted grace.

Jeff Hughes wrote for Sport Rider magazine for eight years and, during that time, described that magic better than nearly anyone else. In this book you will find the complete collection of his stories that appeared there, including such iconic features as Degrees of Control, The Devil on My Shoulder, The Most Honest Place I Know, and the title piece: The Razor's Edge. Part cautionary tale, part joyous recollection, in these 53 stories Hughes puts us on the seat behind him and entertains, edifies, and educates--even as he offers rare insight into the world's finest sport.
