Lanier, Wendy Hinote (Author)
Jan 2017. 32 p. Focus Readers, paperback, $9.95. (9781635171105). library edition, $28.50.
Perspicaciously observing that “chopped” motorcycles are more often made for style than racing or trail riding, Lanier roars into her subject with a visit to the humongous annual Sturgis (SD) Motorcycle Rally. She goes on to note, in brief, the chopper’s history, its “ape hanger” handlebars and other distinctive features, and the fact that most of the motorcycle “outlaws” of yesteryear have given way to “doctors and lawyers who ride on the weekends”—even (wait for it) women! Small color photos throughout provide glimpses of glittering chrome and rakish lines. This entry in the Let’s Roll series concludes with a half dozen review and comprehension questions, plus a convenient bibliography of competing publishers’ recent titles on this topic. A serviceable addition where fresh material on the subject is needed. — John Peters
