Let’s Ride. An Excellent Guide To Motorcycling By Hells Angels Sonny Barger.

When I received a pre-release of Let’s Ride and began to look at the main chapters, I was quite surprised to find out that the legendary founder of the Hells Angel’s Oakland Chapter took the time to write a very serious guide to motorcycling and riding safety.

I was so teased that I read his book right away, and going through pages I was quick to realize that Sonny Barger, the “baddest man on two wheels”, because of his lifetime of experience as a motorcycle rider, may be one of the most qualified persons to tell you how to ride the right way…for life. The “leader of the pack” has half of century of experience riding a million miles and you should read what he has to say from how to choose a motorcycle, to good preparation for yourself and your ride before heading to the highway, to excellent tips to develop the skills and good habits necessary for survival on the road to advanced riding techniques.

What makes this book even more interesting is that you will discover a little bit more than you know about Sonny Barger. For example his bike preferences (he doesn’t like Harleys anymore and rides a Victory), his take about motorcycle safety (since years he rides with a full face helmet although he agrees that it’s your  decision and and that nobody should impose a rule) and a few other revelations that I let you discover. As a bonus, Sonny illustrates his book with some never before seen photographs from his vast archives. You can pre-order now (release is June 8, 2010) . Let’s Ride By Sonny Barger.

    The fact that he is a “neck ” breather due to cancer surgery may have more to do with his helment use than any “safety” concerns He was and I believe still is a strong voice in letting those who ride decide.

    What’s next? A guide to dress right for any Harley party? Just kidding.

    I see more and more “real riders” wearing full face helmets in my area. peace

    Maybe Sonny wears a full helmet so when Mongols or Outlaws are around, they don’t recognize him…. 🙂

    We had the good fortune to meet Sonny and Z at Sturgis last year and since have read many of his books. Great writer, story teller, and person, we are fortunate that people with his experiences are willing to share the knowledge they have learned on the road. I look forward to the new read!
