Soul on Bikes
In today's Harley-happy America, biker books are a dime a dozen, and most are pretty much the same, except, that is, for Soul on Bikes by Tobie Gene Levingston and co-authors Keith and Kent Zimmerman. It's the story of the East Bay Dragons, one of California's oldest and best known African-American motorcycle clubs and the vibrant black biker culture that they helped to create. But this book is about much more than just motorcycles. Granted, there's plenty of the bragging, rowdy behavior and road stories that one expects from hardcore bikers, but there's also a deeper story of family, from the Levingston's roots as Louisiana sharecroppers to the close-knit family of modern African-American motorcycle clubs. This book belongs in every serious biker's library.
