Hog Fever by Richard La Plante – Book

“The Best Harley book I ever read”—Sunday Express
Richard La Plante started riding motorcycles at sixteen, escalating from a Cushman motor scooter to a Norton Electra. An arrest ended his ride at twenty. Eighteen years later, he realized that something was missing from his life.
That something was a Harley-Davidson. Middle-aged, but determined, he bought the smallest bike in the Harley fleet, an 883 Sportster—opening the floodgates to new adventures.
In Hog Fever, La Plante motors from the King’s Road, London, to the badlands of New Mexico, riding with everyone from posers to outlaws. Along the way, he rises to the heights of highway nirvana then plummets to the depths of a crashed bike, a long dark highway, and two hundred miles to ride with a broken foot.
In Hog Fever you will experience not only the creation of the custom bike but the creation of the biker himself, from La Plante’s first tottering ride to his ‘Death Race’ across the American Dream.
