Freedom’s Just Another Word
Twelve steps to freedom: a break-out debut novel of biker and other chicks, medicine wheels and a roundabout journey of the self. Maggie Hoffer has just been picked up for murder one in the shooting death of Mongrel, her drug-dealing, biker husband. Only Maggie says Mongrel actually shot himself, despondent over the fact that he could no longer ride his Harley. Now Maggie's in prison, awaiting trial, and the verdict that will likely keep her behind bars for a very long time. Desperate for her freedom and still on the run from the truth and the hurts that have driven her life, Maggie hooks up with Big Dee, a black woman as big as a stand-up freezer and Maggie's cell – and soon to be – soul-mate. Joined by Sam and Darlene, the lesbians next door, Stella, an Indian woman whose tough exterior belies her own mystical wisdom, and Chan, a young Chinese girl whose English skills aren't nearly as good as her talent for manufacturing fake i.d., the women form “Freedom Anonymous,” a hilarious twist on a twelve-step recovery program. “F.A.” is just a cover so they can plan their escape, but the program becomes a break-out to an important journey of self-discovery as the convicts make their escape and head out across the country. A strikingly original first novel that is entertaining, funny and poignant, resonant with difficult truths that we all must confront, Freedom's Just Another Word possesses a terrific blend of commercial and literary appeal. Complete with unique recipes – “Lou's Fire Eater Funeral Chili Pot” – the prophecies of the Tarot cards and the teachings of ancient native wisdom, this is a wonderfully rich reading

Gloria – A Lifetime Motorcyclist: 75 Years on Two Wheels and Still Riding
Gloria Tramontin Struck rode a motorcycle for the very first time at age 16 in 1941. Women simply didn't ride motorcycles in 1941, but at the urging of her older brother, a very reluctant Gloria gave it a try, and it changed her life forever. She has been riding ever since, and at age 89, still rides regularly and continues to participate in cross country rides. As you might expect, any woman regularly riding a motorcycle in an era when women didn't ride motorcycles has a lot of stories to tell. InGloria Struck: 75 years on Two Wheels and Still Riding, Gloria shares with you all of her favorite stories, from back when she was being raised behind her father's motorcycle shop in Clifton NJ, through 75 years of riding tales, all the way to the present, where she is rightfully celebrated at motorcycles rallies and events. Complementing her life and riding stories is an extensive scrapbook of photos, over 100 of which are included in this autobiography. Also included are anecdotes provided by fans, friends and admirers. Of course, Gloria's book and her stories, are as much about overcoming prejudice and personal obstacles, as it is about riding motorcycles. Because of that, this book resonates with riders and non-riders alike. The message is about more than riding, it's about meeting and conquering life's challenges with courage and humor.

Harley-Davidson Motor Cycles: Rolling Sculpture: A Pictorial Celebration
There can be little argument that Harley-Davidson has become an American legend-one that is known the world over. But the company can also be heralded as a survivor. Two world wars, the Great Depression, and the fickle buying trends of the American public managed to kill off all of the estimated 300 U.S. motorcycle manufacturers that once dotted the country-every one of them-except for Harley-Davidson. This volume celebrates Harley-Davidson's 95 years in the motorcycle business. The Motor Company has come a long way since William Harley and Arthur and Walter Davidson pieced together that first prototype and no doubt the founders would be proud of its progress.

Harley-Davidson Sportster: Sixty Years
Things got a little weird in the American motorcycle industry after World War II. People hungered for new motorcycles, buying just about everything manufacturers could build. But on rare occasions a manufacturer produced a machine that nobody wanted. Such was the case with the Harley-Davidson Model K. The Model K had most of the features buyers wanted in a modern machine, like hand-operated clutches, foot-operated shifters, and cool-running aluminum heads, but it lacked perhaps the most important technological upgrade: a modern overhead-valve valve-train design. The Model K retained the antiquated side-valve design because of arcane AMA racing rules written when Harley-Davidson and Indian competed head-to-head on American racetracks, but by 1952 Indian was on its last legs. This should have made the Model K a massive sales success. What nobody counted on was the British bike invasion. Thanks to their modern overhead-valve engines, the lightweight British bikes humiliated the side-valve Harleys on the track and on the street. Upgrades to the Model K didn't help; Harley finally relented and introduced a new overhead-valve middleweight for the 1957 model year. Dubbed the Sportster, it was everything the Model K was not. More importantly, it was faster than the British competition. Thus began the Sportster's sixty-year reign. Harley-Davidson Sportster: Sixty Years tells the complete Sportster story. Noted Sportster expert Allen Girdler covers all the bikes--the XLCH, Café Racer, XR1000, XLX, 883, Iron, Forty-Eight, Seventy-Two, and Nightster--that have made the Sportster one of the most iconic motorcycles on earth.

Harley-Davidson Twin Cam, Hop-Up & Rebuild Manual
The Harley-Davidson Twin Cam engine was first manufactured in 1999, and remains the current design for all Big Twin Harleys. Today, approximately 2 million Twin Cams are out there and many of them need work. Even for those that don’t, most Harley riders are looking for "just a little more horsepower," enough to keep up with their buddies on hopped-up Harleys. For anyone wanting to get a little, or a lot, more power from a Twin Cam, this book presents combinations of parts that work together to provide the maximum power for the least amount of money. The crew at R&R Cycles have assembled their favorite combinations, or "recipes," that fall into one of three hop-up categories: Mild, Medium, and Race-Ready. In addition to Twin Cam history and theory, as well as the combinations that work, this new book includes a complete and thorough engine assembly chapter. It has more than 20 pages of sequential photos and detailed captions that explain how a professional shop with a long history of building winning race engines, assembles a Twin Cam that's both fast and very durable.

Harley-Davidson: An Illustrated Guide
This illustrated guide is packed with interesting facts and follows the history of the famous Harley-Davidson company and the development of its famous bikes, which have earned a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts everywhere. The story dates from 1903 when Bill Harley and the Davidson brothers, with no thought of fame or fortune, decided to build a motorcycle that really worked. So successful was it, that it led to the gradual formation of a company that has survived through good times and bad. Through good times and bad, losing and winning back police contracts, as well as weathering various other vicissitudes, the company has achieved lasting success. In the end, Harley-Davidson came to the ultimate decision of giving its customers what they really wanted, not by providing year-on-year innovations, but by remaining true to the Founders' original concept. The result, as everyone knows, are bikes of mythic status, imbued with a mysterious quality of their own and generating a passion in enthusiasts amounting almost to a love affair. The name has come to personify America and is up there alongside Coca-Cola, Ford and McDonald's. The bikes are described in detail, not only in mechanical terms, but also with glorious photographs, and will be of interest to everyone who loves motorbikes: even aficionados of Japanese and European bikes, who have never even ridden a Harley-Davidson, will be able to recognize the unique marriage of style and nostalgia and the fact that there are no other bikes quite like them.
