AMERICAN BIKER – BOOK (Copy)
American Biker is the most insightful, comprehensive, and thought-provoking look at the biker lifestyle ever seen in print. The book leads the reader on an entertaining yet evocative journey through the winding spectrum of the entire lifestyle, from its tumultuous history, to the power of the clubs, to the political and media maelstrom both in and around it—all while firmly grounded in the most important component of all: the truth!!!
Featuring insights and commentary from biker legends, media personalities, and just plain ol’ riders, American Biker explores the biker culture in an unprecedentedly rich and honest way. Spike, the president of the legendary Hessians MC mother chapter in Southern California, calls American Biker “the best book about the motorcycle culture ever written!” The book is hardcover, 411 pages long and features many “interesting” and vintage photos.

The Lifestyle-the image-is also examined; from the often fantasy-driven entertainment industry, to the weekend-warriors, to those who have truly made “all of this” a way of life.
And because it is written from the inside, The Truth on all issues and aspects of the biker world is never compromised-even when discussing controversial topics. From club politics to “Property of” patches, from cop clubs to racism, American Biker never backs down.
The “voices” of truth in American Biker include former United States Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell; Easyriders Europe Editor, Michael Stein; actor and biker Robert Patrick; Motorcycle Hall of Famers John “Rogue” Herlihy and Keith Ball; President of the mother chapter of the Hessians MC, “Spike”; longtime member and officer of the Vietnam Vets MC, “Popeye”; documentary filmmaker Randall Wilson; bikers “on the street,” from Daytona to Sturgis to Hollister; and many, many more.
American Biker is a must-read for anyone wanting to truly understand the biker lifestyle. Published by Flash Productions, LLC.
About the Author
Life is a kick! And I love it! I’m honored to have been able to spend so many years playing music, writing about wild and powerful stuff, riding motorcycles and training with some of the most talented martial artists around. I’m also ever-grateful that I grew up in—and survived—the crazed 1960s.The roots of my writing, riding, music and karate are all woven into the foundation that was laid back then. American society has never experienced anything like the ’60s before or since—on one hand that’s probably a good thing, on the other, well, it’s a damn shame that everyone couldn’t taste a least a lick of the pretty poison brewed up in and around the Summer of Love!It was a time of people becoming hyper-aware of all that life had to offer; it was a time when any thought of boredom was crushed by the avalanche of rock music and social introspection; it was a time that screamed out “make every second count and enjoy existence to its fullest!” To me, those are good roots to have!
