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. Readers who prefer revving a Harley to meditating in a Zen garden know that biking is just as contemplative as chanting in the lotus position. Here, philosopher-bikers explore this seeming dichotomy, expounding on intriguing questions such as: Why are the motorcycles the real stars of Easy Rider? What would Marx and Foucault say about Harley riders’ tight leather garb? What’s it like to live a dual life as a philosophy professor who wrenches his own 1965 Electra Glide? Would Jesus hang out in a biker bar or a coffeehouse? And more importantly, would He ride a Harley or a Honda? These witty, provocative essays give readers and riders a new appreciation of what it means to become one with the road.

Harley-Davidson: words that evoke the open American road and the 'Made in America' tradition like no others. The sweeping chopper handlebars, the distinctive throaty 'potato potato' roar of the engine and the unmistakable logo are all emblems recognized the world over. This book expertly ties together the mechanical evolution of the Harley's engines – from the earliest motorized pedal bicycles to the iconic heavyweight twin cylinder V-engines we know and love today – and the social history of the brand's phenomenal rise in the twentieth century, as innovative survivor of the Great Depression, supplier of the military during both World Wars and enduring symbol of freedom and rebellion in movies such as 'Easy Rider'. It is fully illustrated with pictures of the bikes and those who have ridden them as well as beautiful examples of H-D's distinctive design aesthetic in advertising and collectibles.

Celebrate the 80th anniversary of the engine that changed the motorcycle world. Motorcycle technology lagged far behind automotive technology since the earliest days of the internal-combustion engine. All that changed in 1936 when Harley-Davidson introduced the Model EL. For the first time ever, a company was manufacturing a high-performance overhead-valve engine for the masses. And what an engine it was -- in addition to bringing state-of-the-art technology to the motorcycling world -- a work of art. Because of the shape of its rocker covers, the engine was given a nickname to match its looks: the Knucklehead. The technology used in this engine was so advanced that it laid the foundation for every future Harley-Davidson motorcycle, including the current models built in the 21st century. To this day every cruiser style motorcycle still adheres to the shape of that original Knucklehead. Harley-Davidson Knucklehead: Eighty Years tells the entire Knucklehead story, from the very first overhead-valve V-twin Harley produced for the public through the post-war models, continuing right up until today, when aftermarket manufacturers reproduce complete Knucklehead crate engines because of its continuing popularity.

At the Creation by Herbert Wagner brings to life the human side of Harley-Davidson's quest to motorize the bicycle and then to promote it as a powerful, fast, reliable, and thrilling means of personal transportation. This book examines the origins of two-wheeled transportation from a time when combining the gasoline engine with the bicycle was the province of dreamers and con men. This is the definitive account of the beginnings of the only American motorcycle brand to ultimately succeed and survive. Backed by a decade of research, At the Creation documents for the first time the early years of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle in its birthplace of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, an area that was an early center of motorcycle manufacturing. Previous books on Harley-Davidson have failed to adequately cover this critical period, which has been described as the "era of mystery" by Harley-Davidson company historian Martin Jack Rosenblum. At the Creation takes on several long-standing puzzles and myths, and then, through the use of period documents and original photographs, recreates the actual events of Harley's first years as they most plausibly occurred.

This book outlines the many experiences that I have been faced with in my life from birth to age 48. Several stories are quite comical, others are tragic and sad, but each and every one of them is true. It talks about my experiences with drugs, alcohol and death. It tells of my devotion to my family and to the less fortunate in this world. I have spent countless hours donating my rare blood, platelets, bone marrow and serums. This book tells the reason why I did this all my life, and what I have experienced with several business ventures. My first business was a plumbing company, which I started fresh out of high school. I was in business for over 17 years. I have spent several years managing rock bands, acting, and inventing. My most successful invention Plink, has been on grocery store shelves for over 12 years. I take great pride in what I do and I have always strived for perfection. I believe that persistence is the key to happiness and happiness leads to prosperity. Although I am not a rich man, I have been very successful in my life. I have owned 13 brand new cars, 3 Harley Davidson motorcycles, 5 boats, 5 houses, 4 vacant lots, 38 used cars, and I have had 56 jobs. Many of my success stories are described in detail throughout my book. The most interesting part of my book is my experience with my most recent company, Arizona Company Medical. Through Arizona Company Medical, I spent 3 years of my life furnishing Medical-Marijuana to hundreds of patients around the USA who were suffering from AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer, Migraines, Anorexia, Glaucoma and many other diseases. Medical-Marijuana can be prescribed to ease the pain and suffering that accompanies these diseases. Also included in my book is the true story of how I was issued a Cannabis and Controlled Substance Dealers License from the Arizona Department of Revenue, how the Federal Government collected taxes from the money I made in my business, but then busted me for distributing the same substance that I was licensed for. Details of my business and the Medical-Marijuana bust are outlined in my story. Also included are several real letters from patients who were customers of Arizona Company Medical, who wrote to me to inform me of their progress now that they have the appropriate access to their much needed medication, Medical-Marijuana. My goal is to work towards the legalization of Medical-Marijuana across the USA, and to get the proper help to those that need this medicine. May the Medical-Marijuana movement win the rights for the fight for the people of this great nation.

Perhaps the greatest appeal of the motorcycles that Harley-Davidson manufactures is that they are not throwaway machines. With proper care and maintenance, a modern Harley can outlive its owner. Most of the Harley-Davidson motorcycles built over the past 25 years are still on the road, which means there are many, many used Harleys bought and sold every day. This book provides a practical guide to purchasing the most common Harleys on the used-bike market: the aluminum-engine machines built since 1984, the Evolutions (Sportsters and Big Twins), Twin Cams, and liquid-cooled Revolution bikes (the V-Rod models). These are the bikes being bought and sold, and these are the motorcycles most widely used as daily riders. Harley-Davidson Buyer’s Guide provides everything a reader needs to know to purchase a sound, reliable, enjoyable Harley-Davidson Big Twin motorcycle.
