Loaded with illustrations and color photographs, this popular history of the motorcycle even touches on the attendant fashion associated with its culture. For a slight book, it adequately and engagingly explores its history. In addition to motorcycle aficionados, students will also find this book a good place to start for paper on history, culture, and invention using the motorcycle as a subject.--Jane Van Wiemokly"VOYA" (08/01/2008)
