Get an inside look at the real beginning of outlaw biker culture with this â€śraucous and heartfelt recounting of the early days of biker clubsâ€ť (Roadbike). The story starts one weekend in 1947, at a motorcycle race in Hollister, California. A few members of one club, the no-holds-barred â€śBoozefighters,â€ť got a little juiced up and took their racing to the street. Word of the fracas spread, and soon enough Life magazine was on hand to tell the world, with sensational (albeit posed) pictures of the outlaws. And then the â€śHollister riotâ€ť made its way into the movies, immortalized in Marlon Brandoâ€™s â€śThe Wild One.â€ť What was the reality behind the myth? Through interviews with the surviving members of the Boozefighters, current member Bill Hayes and club historian Jim â€śJQâ€ť Quattlebaum take readers right into the fray for a firsthand account of what happened in Hollister, and the formation of the Boozefighters, where the outlaw biker culture truly began. The book, â€świth its great stories and entertaining real-life charactersâ€ť (MotorcycleUSA.com), is â€śmandatory reading for anyone interested in American motorcycling history â€ś(Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly).
