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.
