It’s no wonder descriptions of riding often resemble the words of Asian mystics and Jedi knights: The ride causes your senses to open completely. You experience only the present, the now.

Putting aside the absurd tendency in this book to think that Harleys are the best bike ever, this is one of my favorite, quirky books.

Come on: it has a chapter titled "The Ontology of Suicide Machines", the premise being that both Bruce Springsteen and Jesus would ride Harleys and avoid riding Hondas.

If the brand bias was in favor of real bikes like Triumphs, this book could well have won that elusive 5th star...

Had a lot of fun with this one! Tons of information on Harley's and Philosophy. The chapters are written by individuals who go into fairly detailed views on the great philosophical teachers and thoughts like Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Heideigger, Descartes, etc. Thoroughly enjoyed it, though sometimes you find them talking in a circle.
