A ready 101 inspecting the Hells Angels Book

For quite a few years I have collected Author Signed Hardcover First Editions of various English language novels from many popular authors. They are mostly affordable especially if you meet the authors at book signings of their new releases or at various Literary Festivals, Cultural Events, etc.

Anyways, this week I received the Hardcover First Edition of :
Hell’s Angel : The Life and Times of Sonny Barger and the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle Club Hardcover – July 2000
by Sonny Barger (Author), Keith Zimmerman (Author), Kent Zimmerman (Author)

Now, even though the ISBN is the same,
1. the Publisher is different
2. the Date of publication is different
3. the number of pages is different

So, here is what I found BEFORE buying the UK First Edition Hardcover

NEW DEAL Bikernet Weekly News for February 28, 2019

By | General Posts

It’s Wild and Explained from Several Angels

Here’s the deal. I fight for freedom and I side with the Freedom Fighters, which are Republicans. Okay, I’m going to scramble through a few points.

I discovered that the folks who wanted restrictive safety laws, punishment regulations and less freedoms were Democrats. I was forced to shift.

I don’t like the current political climate. It’s become a world of us against them and visa versa. It doesn’t need to be that way at all. We could be living in the best of times, dancing in the streets if everyone understood the code of Freedom, which our country once stood for.

Let’s hit the news. READ IT IN THE CANTINA.

Biker Culture – “A Poetry in Motion”

Biker Culture – “A Poetry in Motion”
by Ujjwal Dey

Diane Wakoski describes biker life as “… just being so joyfully alive/ Just letting the blood take its own course/ In intact vessels/ In veins…/ – the motorcyclist riding along the highway/ Independent/ Alone”.

Shirley Dent says, “There is precise science in the recklessness of both riding a bike and writing a poem. A good Biker Poet is taking life on, in all its mad, fast-paced complexity, and turning out something that is precise, clear, true.”

Lucinda Williams describes, “The perfect man? A poet on a motorcycle. You know, the kind who lives on the edge, the free spirit. But he’s also gotta have the soul of a poet and a brilliant mind. So, you know, good luck.”
