I tell you right away. This photographic history of early women motorcyclists is a treasure. Cristine Sommer-Simmons spent years collecting a wealth of impressive period pictures of the true pioneers of motorcycling.
Women such as Bessie Stringfield and Dot robinson who were brave enough to ride all over the country, braving all weather conditions, defying social conventions and showing their strength and independent spirit.
Men, you will fall under the charm of these women riding just about every early brand you’ve ever heard, Harleys, Indians, Popes, Hendersons, Flying Merkels, etc. Women, you will enjoy looking at the clothing they wore and the undeniable peace and freedom on their faces. And everybody will love detailing all these old motorcycles and some of you may find in them some customization inspiration. Pictures of magazine covers, of clothing ads and posters are of very high quality set in a very appealing graphical layout. Reading each woman story is captivating. I have a special affection for this book. You will too. Published last month and already a best-seller. Harcover 240 pages. Order online at American Motorcycle Girls 1900 To 1950.
