Highside: Our Love Affair with the Mot/Williams, Bruc/Paper/0731809726/S056-E1
Simon & Schuster Australia
Highside is an affectionate look at the lives and adventures of Australian who share a passion. Two wheels, one engine: motorcycle!
Written portraits and compelling photography capture the stories of people and their motorcycling communities. But always at the centre is their relationship with their bikes, whether it's a superbike rocket, a loafing cruiser, a leaping dirt bike, a venerable BSA or the humble post bike.
Highside captures the passion that motorcyclists share for the motorcycle and where it takes them - body and soul. The book focuses on how riders use their bikes - as a work tool, for speed, for travel, or as a statement of who they are and where they belong. Racers, gangs, clubs, collectors and restorers, dirt bikers, weekenders, commuters, farmers - young and old, men and women - they all tell their stories and relive their lives on two wheels.
This is a feel-good journey into the world of biking - a book for everyone who's caught the bike bug. It's also a look at Australia from a new perspective: a two-wheel case study of Australians and how they cope with setbacks, how they strive for success, and how they support each other when times are tough. It's a fascinating ride!
