Harleys, Women, and American SocietyBook - 2001
Bike Lust roars straight into the world of women bikers and offers us a ride. In this adventure story that is also an insider's study of an American subculture, Barbara Joans enters as a passenger on the back of a bike, but soon learns to ride her own. As an anthropologist she untangles the rules, rituals and rites of passage of the biker culture. As a new member of that culture, she struggles to overcome fear, physical weakness and a tendency to shoot her mouth off - a tendency that very nearly gets her killed.
