There's no getting around the allure of motorcycles. Since 1885, when Gottlieb Daimler mounted a gas-powered engine on a wooden bicycle, riders of all ages have been drawn to the exhilaration and terror of motoring in the open air on two wheels. Motorcycles have become ingrained in our culture. To some, they are the ultimate expression of freedom. To others, motorcycles symbolize lawlessness and disrespect for authority. The Little Red Book of Motorcycle Wisdom is packed full of wise, witty, and edgy quotes on motorcycles and the people who ride them. Celebrities, literary giants, and athletes offer pithy and memorable comments on what they ride, where they ride, with whom they ride, how fast they ride-and, most importantly, why they ride. Read musings on bikes from such noteworthy folks as: Hunter S. Thompson Marlon Brando Robert Pirsig Evel Knievel Sonny Barger Ewan McGregor Steve McQueen Leonardo DiCaprio Paul Newman Bob Dylan Hugh Laurie Angelina Jolie T. E. Lawrence And dozens of others! There's a reason why people the world over are passionate about a machine that has been dubbed "the perfect vehicle." This book tells you why.

Since his work first graced the pages of "Cycle World" magazine in 1977, Peter Egan has taken his readers on one unforgettable adventure after another. Whether riding along the Mississippi River to New Orleans for a tin of chicory coffee, or flying to Japan to test-ride new Yamahas, Egan's insight and gift with words makes every journey a unique and fascinating experience. Available in paperback for the first time, "Leanings "is a collection of Egan's favorite feature articles and columns from "Cycle World" magazine. Included among the 21 feature articles are Egan's first feature for the magazine, a story about he and his wife's cross-country trip on a British twin, his journey on abandoned Route 66, a history of the motorcycle jacket, and his visit to the fabled Tourist Trophy race on the Isle of Man. A selection of 27 columns are also reproduced here, covering a wide range of subjects, from the nearly lost art of the kick start, how to survive not being able to ride for an entire Wisconsin winter, and a look back at the motorcycle crash that nearly killed the great Bob Dylan. For added perspective, each feature article is preceded by commentary from the author. This is an unforgettable collection of the works of a master writer, whose simple adventures of life remind us all why we love to ride.

The car industry and the way in which cars are created have changed beyond all recognition over the last half-century. Automotive styling was once the grudging afterthought when the engineers had finished their work. Now, following a short flirtation with exotic Italian design houses, it has evolved into sophisticated design carried out by multitalented in-house teams honing carefully crafted brand identities. One of the visionary designers at the forefront of that revolution has been Patrick le Quement. Most widely acclaimed for his 22 years in charge of Renault Design, resulting in such standout models as the Twingo, Scenic and Avantime, le Quement has enjoyed a 50-year career that has also taken in Simca, Ford and Volkswagen-Audi. In his foreword to the book, Stephen Bayley calls le Quement `perhaps the very most original designer working in the conservative car business at the turn of the millennium'. Some 60 million cars across the world now bear the unmistakable stamp of le Quement. Design: Between the Lines is not a straightforward autobiography; rather, le Quement charts his journey through five decades of thoughts, actions, failures and successes. He offers fascinating commentaries on design and the creative process, and on some of the extraordinary automotive brands that make up our shared cultural heritage. As Bayley notes, for le Quement, design is `as much a matter of thinking as a matter of drawing'. On a broader, more philosophical level, le Quement also shares his views about life in general and that remarkable contraption called `the automobile', which has so influenced the lives of millions of people the world over from the late 1800s to the present day. Presented as a series of 50 brief essays or `perspectives', le Quement's thoughtful and astute observations from the street, from the design studio and from his seat in the boardroom give the reader a penetrating and often amusing insight into the high-level workings of a global industry, its triumphs and tragedies, and the foibles of the decision-makers responsible for running it. A lively complementary text by the automotive journalist Stephane Geffray accompanies each of le Quement's perspectives, and illustrations are provided by the automobile designer Gernot Bracht. Design: Between the Lines will appeal to all motoring fans and enthusiasts of good design. As Chris Bangle, the former Director of BMW Design, remarks: `Few car designers have had a career so filled with innovative successes that they have inspired a whole industry; fewer still have the skills to share it. Engaging and revealing, Patrick relates his personal experience and deep knowledge of car design in a very enjoyable manner.'
