As we now have a Sticky for favorite motorcycle movies I suggested to Mouth a Sticky for books and novels that are related to motorcycling. Some are fiction, some are non fiction. Please feel free to add to the list...provided you have actually read the book(s) you are listing. There's no point adding a book you have not read, because then you cannot include your review of it. I can find a dozen books about bikes that I have not read myself. We want reviews of them also. Cheers: Jaq. Motorcycle Books; Fiction and Non. Most are available as new or used on www.amazon.com Ted Simon, Jupiters Travels. One of the first people to ride off around the world. Ted is a legend amongst around the world riders. Heldge Pedersen, Ten Years on Two Wheels. This guy rode around just about every country in the world for ten years. A coffee table book, more photos than writing. Roger Zelany, Damnation Alley. Hell Tanner is the last outlaw biker left alive in California. A nuclear war has decimated most of the USA and Boston has the Plague. As a dubious alternative to a life long prison sentence Tanner agrees to drive/ride and fight his way across a wasteland of mutated humans and monsters. A great adventure novel, made into a truly horrendous movie starring Jan Michael Vincent and George Peppard and re-named Survival Run. The book is completely different to the movie. Not even the same characters or storyline. It’s interesting to note that this book was written a long time before Mad Max and all the other post apocalyptic road movies came out. Chris Scott, Desert Biking. Everything you always wanted to know about how to set up a bike for serious off road riding, be it for the Sahara or the Australian Outback. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. I mention it only because it has almost nothing about bikes in it. Don’t be mislead by the title. Ewan Macgregor and Charley Boorman, Long Way Round. Great DVD but a crap book IMO. They had a good producer and a crap Editor from what I can see. I found the novel very boring, many others agree. If you’ve seen the DVD set, don’t bother reading the book. Steve Wilson, Lost Traveler. Again set in a not too distant future, another nuclear war (I see a trend here?) Biker gangs have organized and run/protect the vital oil routes. A small group of them is tasked with a vital mission, rescuing an oil chemist from a fortified prison belonging to another group. Starts with plenty of action, a decent story, kind of wanders around a bit in the middle and at the end. Could have been better. Worth reading however, simply because Steve Wilson is a biker himself and has written many books about Harley, Triumphs and classic bikes. Easyriders Magazine, Best Book of Biker Fiction, volumes 1 to 3. Some great stories, action, humour, sadness. Some true to life, some not so. Many by authors like Jody Via (my favorite writer of short motorcycle adventure/action stories). JJ Solari, to whom nothing is sacred, not even the Harley or outlaw club. Some written by famous American biker personalities. Hunter S. Thompson, Hells Angels Forever. The noted American writer and poet rode with the Angels for a year or more and afterwards wrote this book. Condemned by the Angels as not being a true to life account of what the Angels were like, nevertheless the novel inspired many movies and other books about the club. Chocolate George Wilson, A Wayward Angel. A real life Hells Angel, a confident and riding brother of club Prez Sonny Barger, George tells a rather more interesting account of riding with the club. He and the Angels parted company after many years and George has been in the witness protection and relocation program ever since. Again a book to be taken with a grain of salt, but worth reading anyway. More bike books to follow, I’ve a bookcase filled to the brim and need to sort thru them to get author names and titles.
