Peter Egan and Boozefighters


Two books now available to Canadian readers feature acclaimed Cycle World columnist Peter Egan, and some ancient bikers who changed the world.

Leanings, by Cycle World columnist Peter Egan, is available from Motorbooks for $21.95 Cdn.

Egan started writing for Cycle World magazine more than 30 years ago and has become famous for evocative, entertaining, and adroitly written tales about motorcycling. Leanings is a collection of his favourite articles and columns from the magazine and contains 21 feature stories, including his first major piece for the magazine, and 27 of his monthly columns.

Egan’s columns are often considered the best in American motorcycle journalism.

The Original Wild Ones  is now available from Motorbooks as a paperback at $19.95 Cdn.

It’s the genesis of outlaw biker culture as the Boozefighters Motorcycle Club takes over Holister, California, in 1947 — or so the legend goes. What really happened? Jim Quattlebaum tells you in this book.

Or you could rent The Wild One and see Hollywood’s version of events, which you know you can believe.
