It Will Get Tough: Cops & Bikers
By Ralph “Teach” Elrod
“All I ever wanted were brothers who would stand with me no matter how tough it gets, and it will get tough.”
That sentiment and those words set the tone for It Will Get Tough: Cops & Bikers, the new book by Ralph “Teach” Elrod. The true stories that power through these 237 pages are raw and rugged, but they also show the rewards and relish that standing strong in the biker lifestyle can bring.
“Teach”—a nickname given to Ralph by an old Galloping Goose—was indeed a teacher, spending five years working between students and a chalkboard back in the ’60s. And teach is what this man still does in this book; carefully detailing the ups and downs and sideways slides of this way of life for outsiders and insiders alike.
Those details are often chilling.
