Product Description

From the Back Cover

In The One Percenter Code, best-selling Motorbooks author and editor of Easyriders magazine Dave Nichols takes up where he left off in One Percenter: The Legend of The Outlaw Bikers. Nichols brings readers inside the world of outlaw motorcycle clubs and pulls back the secretive curtain on the biker lifestyle. He explores the concept of brotherhood, ultimately arriving at a new definition of family and community in the process. Being a member of a one percenter motorcycle club requires extreme discipline; in this book, Nichols shows us what that life offers in return.
 
Nichols delves into the one percenter code of conduct and honor and finds something sorely lacking in modern society: integrity. In this book, he shows the reader how they can apply the values of the one percenter in their own lives.
 
The world of the outlaw biker has its own rough-hewn rules of order, and The One Percenter Code acts as a guidebook to that truth-, honor-, and brotherhood-based world.

Reading 'The One Percenter Code' is kind of like listening to a rambling, repetitive monologue delivered by an old-timer from a barstool : there's wisdom and good advice here, but if this book were to have seen the hands of a serious editor instead of one who left in all of its fillers and repetitions, it would be about four paragraphs long.
That said, what does exist at the core of Dave Nichols' message is worth saying, and, sure, worth repeating. He makes strong points about the incredible wimpiness modern life has engendered in men, and how values that once upheld society have eroded to the point that they're considered useless. Shooting this message through the lens of the biker world and the codes of conduct in motorcycle clubs is sometimes a stretch, but in doing so he does manage to make a point, in many cases making you laugh out loud in agreement when he does so.
This isn't a true insider's view of the One Percenter world - getting that would take a hell of a lot more effort than buying a book - but it draws out enough life lessons from a sector of society most people consider undesirable to prove that bikers and the old-school, hard-core types that are literally dying off these days have a lot more to offer than folks these days give them credit for.

starts out ok but the author attempts ridiculous comparisons with mythic heroes etc. the focus on potbellied guys with no protection on unroadworthy equipment would make most real bikers throw up (talking bout the photos). but maybe that's unfair. this book isn't about real bikers.

Excellent purchase for anyone curious about the lifestyle who anyone who frequents places where MC or RC are a presence. It gives a great deal of understanding and know-how.
The obvious aside, its plainly a great insight on how to be a better human being while remaining genuine to yourself, kinda like Anton Lavey had it back in 1966.. lol
Different era, different title I guess.
Bottom line - I loved it
