This book covers the present-day motorcyclist subculture in America in a serious and scholarly fashion. It combines more than 45 years of the author's riding experiences with data collected over five years of systematic observation and extensive ethnographic interviews with over 200 male and female riders. Much has been written about hardcore bikers, the one-percenters, but there has been little scholarly research on the much larger segment of the population more aptly called motorcycle enthusiasts, or simply motorcyclists, than bikers. This book focuses on them--the hard working plumbers, construction workers, truck drivers, and other blue collar workers as well as the white collar executives, teachers, doctors, lawyers and other professionals who are mostly married, have mortgages, pay their bills, obey the law, and on weekends and holidays participate in a favorite pastime, riding motorcycles.
