“It’s a free
country and what you do is your business, not mine. Just know I think you
should wear a full face helmet. If you don’t and crack your skull and kill
yourself, don’t expect me to feel sorry for you.” We are truly lucky that Mister Barger is still around to mentor us
bikers, both young and old.
This is a great book covering
motorcycles from tires to the tank. Sonny and Darwin put together a great
comprehensive guide to motorcycling and enjoying the sport of motorcycling. I gave this
book to the novice rider in my house and he plowed through it in one sitting
and he enjoyed it immensely.
Sonny tells you about bikes he has ridden, bought
and enjoyed and bikes that you should avoid at all costs. Along the way he interjects some
sage advice and a few well placed jibes and rants that left me laughing out
loud and shaking my head yes in total agreement. Sonny advises that you complete
the M.S.F. RiderCourse and wear a helmet and protective gear.
