I bought this particular book because the author Mr. Wright wrote it with out any difficulties from the Harley-Davidson people.Therefor it is the straight skinny without any glossing over as usual.It explains in the front how this happens, and then goes on to give a very nice historical summation of 100 years of bike building. If you have read any Harley books before,then this one will be the best. Enjoy the read....

The details are intriguing for someone who has always admired the old Harley's but did not really know the history. The book might be a little boring if you are not curious about the background and history of an American Icon. Great pictures also. I really enjoyed it.

I have read well over 15 books in the last year on the history of Harley Davidson. This book in particular broke the mold in comparision to the others because the author went over and above the call of duty in his research. Rather than simply recite the corporate timeline and Harley's non-asscociation with outlaw biker gangs, Wright chose to speculate on some very real issues facing the Motor Company today. Problems like an aging customer base, continued invasion from foreign manufacturers and a strong emphasis on where the company must set it's sights in order to overcome these issues.
Besides that he actually speaks in detail about everyone's greatest fear-the retirement of Willie G. The rest as they say is history. Definately a great read. If you're like me and have read a great deal of books of this nature, then you will truly appreciate this book. Throughout my time spent, I probably only didn't read a total of 10 pages of the entire book. Enjoy!
