Format: Paperback
While this book is funny/interesting, there was nothing in this book that I had not heard before or that experience or common sense (remember what that is?) had not taught me. I believe that the the book is also vastly over priced for it's size(120 pages). Save your money, buy gas for your bike, and use the best teacher of all, get on the road, and in the wind.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book with the hope that it might be interesting and have some funny quotes on the lifestyles of motorcyclists. It does not, it is simply a list of qotes with cute drawings. You could get these quotes for free at your average biker bar. The book took me all of 12 minutes (I timed it) to read and I was extremly sorry that I spent my hard earned money on it. In short, if you are looking for an interesting read you would be better of buying Melissa Holbrook-Pierson's "The Perfect Vehicle"

Great stuff, if you ride a hog or other bikes, you can relate to the wisdom and the wit. It has put a smile on several of my friends faces. I love the down to earth logic. Best clean jokes I have seen for bikers.

Format: Paperback
I hate to say it, but this is a gathering of dumb old saying, many of which I still find no humor in. Save your money, or buy any other book for readers over the age of 6. (Sorry, but I was really disappointed)

I thought from the review there were more stories in it - but it was just cartoons and one liners. And smaller than I thought. I was disappointed since I bought it for a gift. But that could be my fault that I read it incorrectly.

This book is very easy to read--takes only a little while. It provided many chuckles, smiles, and nods acknowledging the truth in some of the quotes.

I'm recommending it to everyone in my HOG (Harley Owners Group) chapter.
