She's a Bad Motorcycle - Writers on Riding, Edited by Geno Zanetti
This is a great compilation of motorcycle stories. 2 dozen essays, mostly excerpts from larger pieces on motorcycling. The book starts out with a piece from "The Perfect Vehicle" by Melissa Pierson which is one of my favorite motorcycle books. It then goes on with one hell raising adventure story after another by the likes of SOnny Barger, Hunter Thompson, S.E. Hinton, and Gary Paulsen. There are some more sedate pieces like Robert Pirsig's piece from "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintanance." But mostly they gravitate towards the dangerous and downright criminal. It ends with a piece called Bikers for Jesus. It's a rambling disjointed and overall poorly written piece that has little to do with motorcycles at all. I can only think of two reasons it might have been included. Either the editor is a christian and is trying to lead readers to Christ, or he's decidedly non-christian and is trying to make christians look like idiots. Either way, this piece should have been left out. It's kind of a let down after all the good stories in this book.
