American Biker, by Bill Hayes

The History, The Clubs, The Lifestyle, The Truth.

As many of you know Bill Hayes has been in and around the Bikers’ World for a long time. He is a patch holder in the Boozefighters MC and author of “The Original Wild Ones”. He has a deep love and respect for all things biker. At the same time his perspective is generally objective. His writing style is down to earth with just the right amount of color to draw you in and keep your interest.

“The History”. Bill does a great job of bringing everything into alignment by his extensive knowledge of biker history. He also tempers this with quotes from those who were there. At the same time, you will never feel burdened with details. The book flows like a cross country ride.

“The Clubs”. Bill knows, loves, and respects the Club Life. Without sensationalism, or prejudice he tells it as it is. No excuses, or secrets given, no Club business discussed just some historical background from the inside.

“The Lifestyle”. As much as the mere mention of “Lifestyle” will make the hair bristle on the neck of an old schooler, Bill does a good job of explaining what sets us apart from the mainstream. The book does justice to why we look, and act the way we do. Not to mention why we are emulated by others.

“The Truth”. Bill tells the truth. As we all know truth like art is in the eye of the beholder. Keeping that in mind, you will get the feeling from Bill’s work that he has done everything to make sure he got it right.

So why read Bill’s new book? If you’ve been around, and think you know it all, then you will enjoy the book for what it is, and how it’s written. If you’re new to the Bikers’ World, you will need to know that which is written down. If you’re just curios and like to read history, then here you go.

Long and short of it is, I liked the book a lot. It was well written and easy to read. It was like spending time with an old friend over a few cold ones.

The Life, Biker Photography and Poetry book

Never buy any book about the Biker Lifestyle without checking the credentials of those authoring it. Doug Barber a.k.a. Q-Ball, the master photographer, and Eddie Sorez Pliska a.k.a. Sorez The Sribe, the highway poet, have shared the road with the old school and hard core bikers during more than 30 years. As patch holders, separately and together, they have been riding, partying, and mixing it up with the good, the bad, and the ugly.
