Ita€™s no wonder descriptions of riding often resemble the words of Asian mystics and Jedi knights: The ride causes your senses to open completely. You experience only the present, the now. Readers who prefer revving a Harley to meditating in a Zen garden know that biking is just as contemplative as chanting in the lotus position. Here, philosopher-bikers explore this seeming dichotomy, expounding on intriguing questions such as: Why are the motorcycles the real stars of Easy Rider? What would Marx and Foucault say about Harley ridersa€™ tight leather garb? Whata€™s it like to live a dual life as a philosophy professor who wrenches his own 1965 Electra Glide? Would Jesus hang out in a biker bar or a coffeehouse? And more importantly, would He ride a Harley or a Honda? These witty, provocative essays give readers and riders a new appreciation of what it means to become one with the road.Ducati 916, 101, 108 design of, 115a€“16 Duchamp, Marcel, 64, 104 Fountain, 103 Dogen, 5 Shobogenzo, 7 Dylan, Bob, ... 7 andHarleys, 6 and motorcycle maintenance, 7a€“9 andmotorcycle riding, 5a€“6 Gibson, Mel, 17 Girlona Motorcycle( film), anbsp;...
