Biker Chicz of North America Reviews
I am enjoying the book, it does have interesting information, but is a bit dry reading! I am interested in other females who ride, and what they have gone through.
Thank you very much. I am enjoying reading about women motorcycle riders.
This book brings to life the sometimes under estimated woman in motorcycling. What wonderful stories of some tuff and very smart independent woman. Goes to show "we all have stories" to tell of our life and I find them interesting and inspiring.
Gave a great insight to why chicks can love bikes as much as blokes.
The history of the motorcycle, and those unique people that have chosen this life style,can be as diverse as our nation. Our history offers us everything from the touring groups to social groups; gender groups to couples; Motor Maids to Outlaws.
Biker Chicz of North America is a great read, especially if you like Harley motorcycles. It takes the reader down the Highway of Freedom, a place where independent women dwell and flourish, never looking back as they eagerly anticipate the next curve in the road. The 22 independent stories are up-lifting, keeping the reader glued to the book, and turning the pages in anticipation of the next paragraph. Highly recommended.
I'm one of the "Biker Chicz" featured in the book on page 196. Finally had the chance to read the book, and it was hard to put down. I even took notes from some of the gals stories; really some intelligent & freethinking women. I totally became inspired with fresh breaths of enthusium throughout the read. I'm not pushing the book because I'm it it... but because I believe in the book, it contents, and the values from within. 22 very different women with 22 eye-opening stories of women climbing & struggling to their heights & beyond, in a mostly male dominated biker world.
