Insight Into The CultureIn the motorcycle industry, whether you're at a national biker rally or participating in a local bike run, you're bound to come across an individual that this book will familiarize you with-the one known as "that guy." You know, the person who's new to the motorcycle culture and doesn't necessarily know how to fi t into it. If you're a novice rider, you should start in a place where when there's true passion for getting into the sport and lifestyle of motorcycling, but what if you don't know what you're doing?Author Jay Barbieri wants to help with his Biker's Handbook: Becoming Part of the Motorcycle Culture. While we all know reading a book about motorcycles won't make you a "biker," Jay's book provides some insight on the biker culture. As a lifelong rider and part of the culture himself for 30 years, as well as producer of Speed TV's American Thunder, Jay lends his expertise to new riders wanting to learn more about motorcycling and the culture in the form of hilarious and entertaining stories and informative material. From a brief history of motorcycles to years of experiences and living the lifestyle, Jay provides tips and guidance to novice riders about the biker lifestyle and stories that more seasoned bikers may be able to relate to and appreciate.
