Let’s Ride

I bought Sonny Barger’s bookLet’s Ride” after Biker Chick News and The Many Thoughts of HarleyGirl recommended reading it. Thanks ladies! When it arrived I was in the middle of several other books that I wanted to finish before giving my attention to Barger’s book.

This week I finally began reading the book and I can see this is going to be quite a resource for any motorcyclist. I’m only about thirty pages in and I’m not bored. Initially I thought I would zip through this book and move on, but I don’t think that will be the case! I might as well learn more about motorcycling on and off the bike!

As Sonny says, “Ride smart, live long, and die of old age.”

  1. Looks like someone has guzzled the biker Kool-Aid.

  2. Glad you were inspired to read the book!

    Todd, if you are thinking that Barger is trying to encourage people to live the same type of “one-percenter” life he’s lived, you’d be incorrect. I don’t consider advice such as “wear a helmet” and “buy the bike that fits you, regardless of make/model” to be taking the Kool-Aid. I was honestly surprised at how mainstream most of Barger’s advice was. Also, there’s a very thorough section detailing the types of motorcycles out there, and how to determine which one you will enjoy riding. There’s also a good section on road skills… none of which seems like “Kool Aid” to me. Maybe you and I differ on that point, but reading the book might surprise you – as it did me.

  3. Thanks for the recommendation. It’s now on my “wish list”.
