Life is a Road, the Soul is Motorcycle

Picked this up out of a pile of books while I was in Iraq. Pretty quick read and has some funny stories in it. Details about the book here.

Just PM me your address and I'll snail mail it off.

Cheers,
Pete

Re: Life is a Road, the Soul is Motorcycle

I trust it was better than this book. I saw it promoted in the Barber Motorsports Museum, but didn't want to spend $25 on it, snagged it off Amazon for $4.07 including shipping. Might have paid too much anyway. The author talked about "driving" his motorcycle and couldn't so much as change a tire without the help of his girlfriend. Very good insight to economical indicators in various locales, with a consistent free market perspective that I often found better than his motorcycle tales.

I like Meyer s writing style. I should look for his books down at Half Price. Being that I'm kind of a skinflint

He's a super nice guy (Daniel Meyer), friend, Valkyrie rider, and a fellow Texan. He really does attract strange happenings like his books say.....

Re: Life is a Road, the Soul is Motorcycle

Tao of the Ride by Garri Garripoli is another good one of that respect. pretty quick read. he is pro-Harley, as that is what he rides, but its a nice read none the less. Im reading it again right now, and would be willing to loan it out when I'm done with it.
