Format: Paperback
Bikers from all walks of life, professional and blue collar,
articulate their "wisdom for the ride", accompanied by some great
pictures. All this in an elegantly designed package small
enough to put in your pocket or saddle bags. A timeless "big"
little book that really gives you your moneys' worth. 'Two
thumbs up, way up"

I was just a kid when I was sitting on the back of a bike and holding on for dear life. My arms around these two wide shoulders holding on with a vice like grip. I trusted my father and I knew he would never put me in danger. I remember the sound of the engine and the wind as we broke through some kind of a sound barrier or something. The sharp turns that we didn't slow down for and for sure I was going to fall off.The sounds and the screaming of the wind were a memory I grew up with.I didn't realize it then but it was the most exhilarating memory of my life.
It all came back as I breezed through my new copy of The Biker Code. Was it the fear of getting on the bike or was it just something that I just never got around to doing?
Every page brought me closer to that memory so very long ago. Did I just see my old man on one of the bikes or was I just looking for him? Why did I run away from it? Is it not to late? My God, how I just love all of those free spirited souls on every page. Is it not too late to go back to those memories?
A great book. An emotional journey. Maybe a dream that can be lived again.

This book changed the way I drive around bikers...because I didn't really understand their vulnerability, AND because I didn't appreciate their strengths. This book shows a side of bikers that non-bikers (like myself) need to see. It is both beautiful and moving.

We generally fear the unknown.
If someone is different, it tends to scare us.
To most a 'biker' is someone that is unknown and different, hence feared - irrationally.
The Biker Code - Wisdom For The Ride is a unique opportunity for those who are not bikers to get a rare peak into the lives and views of those who are bikers. We get to see the bikers and read in the their own words, who they are and why they ride these machines. Carpenters, psychiatrists, artists, mechanics,...salesman, chef, funeral director, medical assistant, moms and retirees; perhaps not the boy or girl next door but fellow Americans, fellow humans.
Different? Perhaps, but after reading this book we find them less different than we may have imagined. Or at least they are no longer unknown and while they may be different, we can respect their individuality and their way of expressing it.
Stuart Miller and Geoffrey Moss are to be commended for an exceptional book, beautifully done, providing for those who are afraid to go there in person, an insight into the biker's world and for those who ride, an extraordinary canvas to paint a true picture of themselves.
Saddle up!

Are you a Biker? I'm not, but after reading this beautifully crafted book, I have developed great admiration and empathy for this uniquely American culture. The best endorsement for this book: it was given to my wife and I by a Biker friend- personally selected by him because he felt it truly expressed the wind, the motion, the freedom- that riding means to him. Each spread reveals an individual through a riveting picture and their personal "Wisdom for the Ride."
The images are compelling. Through the glare of the chrome and the intimidating black leather, you find yourself making direct eye contact with real people. Far from threatening, these people are wholesome, remarkable people expressing their individuality in the greatest American tradition. The seeds of wisdom shared are genuine, earthy and reflective of the great danger these people face to pursue their passion for the open road. The bonds of brother and sister are forged among these strangers exactly because they know and accept those risks. Still, in our country which stresses cultural diversity and acceptance, they are overlooked and misunderstood by most of us.
Who can argue with believing in something so strongly, you're willing to put it all on the line- and being able to depend on your peers to always watch your back. Some would say that doesn't exist anymore. All would agree that's just what the world needs more of. Chivalry isn't dead. If you're a Biker, buy this book for yourself or a friend. If you're an American, buy this book for some great images, powerful words and a good measure of pure flag-waving patriotism. Nobody will go away disappointed.
