Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is based on user submissions received by Walter F. Kern during his stint at the Motorcycles Guide at About.com, and also during his current assignment as editor of Motorcycle Views, which he founded.

This book is an anthology of motorcycle stories. These 50 motorcycle tales were submitted to the author over a 13-year period by a wide range of motorcyclists from all walks of life. These authors tell their own personal stories of what happened to them as they rode their motorcycles.

Some tales are very short, and some are very long. You may find the stories of some authors grouped together. Each tale was intensively edited to provide a good listening experience. You'll find humor, risk-taking, adventures, poetry, rhyming verse, two-up excursions, world travelers, stupid tricks on bikes, lessons learned, winter riding perils, hazards while riding, and stories told by returning riders.

Walter wrote five of these stories. Two of his stories relate his experiences on his motorcycle trips. Two stories are fictional children's stories that involve fantasy and motorcycles. The last story is a short fictional tale that describes an alternate world of motorcycles.

    "Bar talk in book form"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Eh.... I couldn't imagine too many


    What was most disappointing about Walter F. Kern’s story?

    The voices, the way the stories were told. Poorly scripted and read. This could have been better done by a bunch of bikers sitting around a bar with a mic in the middle them all. Not tremendously entertaining. I only made it through 12 "stories" and I couldn't take it anymore.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    Probably not.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 50 Wild Motorcycle Tales?

    All of them between the beginning and end.


    Any additional comments?

    I really don't think this was worthy of a book. I tell stories all the time but I don't make a book out of them.

    "Poor"

    Struggled to listen to it all, the people where reading off a page like robots, it was like listening to a car show that has those beautiful women talking that may speak well and pronunciate but come across wrong. Very americanised for it seams those that have just spent thousands on a new Harley to ride once or twice a year.

    "Good stories but horrible narration"

    It's a shame. Most of the stories were really interesting but they were mostly read in flat monotone. The worst culprit is the bloke who did Chopper Clause, I ended up skipping the stories he read. I'd still recommend the book though!
