"Rich with personal experience and deep with knowledge of motorcycles since their first invention, "Live to Ride" brings home the full rush of the need for speed."
--Madison Smartt Bell, author of "All Souls' Rising "and "Devil's Dream"Vom Verlag:
In LIVE TO RIDE, the extraordinary writing of Wayne Johnson makes readers feel like participants, not just observers: whether it's roaring down an empty highway at an insane speed on two wheels, hopping on for a few mindboggling loops of motocross, or joining in the rolling thunder of a veritable outlaw motorcycle club, Wayne has done it all himself and brings us along for the ride. As he says, "Here you are in it, this landscape, not just passing through." This book is all about the adventure of riding as well as the colorful groups and fascinating that history that goes along with it. Some topics covered include: the history of the motorcycle, beginning more than a hundred years ago when it evolved from the bicycle; what it means to ride a Ducati vs. BMW; inside looks at diverse racing venues like the vertigo-inspiring "Widowmaker Hillclimb" and the fastest land racing in the world at the Bonneville Salt Flats; and what biker clubs are, with first hand accounts of Wayne's own wild rides with an outlaw club. LIVE TO RIDE is sure to touch many kinds of readers: those who have ever wondered what it's like to hop on a motorcycle; those who have actually done it and felt the rush of pleasure that goes along with zooming off; or those who just like to read about people having wild, life-expanding adventures; and finally the many readers intrigued by this fascinating, important part of modern American culture.
