Riding with Hells Angel Sonny Barger | Jacket Copy | Los Angeles Times

Riding with Hells Angel Sonny Barger | Jacket Copy | Los Angeles Times: "In 1957, Sonny Barger helped found the Oakland, Calif., chapter of the Hells Angels, the outlaw motorcycle club. Barger became a leading figure of the group, which played a major cultural role in the 1960s. Barger himself appeared in Hunter S. Thompson's 1966 'Hell's Angels' and was at the disastrous 1969 concert at Altamont. Barger has been arrested more than 20 times and spent 13 years in jail.
Today, Barger, 71, lives in Arizona, where the L.A. Times' Susan Carpenter went to ride with him and talk about his sixth book, 'Let's Ride: Sonny Barger's Guide to Motorcycling, How to Ride the Right Way -- for Life.'
Having logged more than a million miles and suffered only one serious accident, Barger is the rare rider who could write such a book with authority. In fact, 'Let's Ride' is just the latest example of how he has used a marginalized form of transportation to elevate himself from troublemaker to an author who has sold hundreds of thousands of books worldwide. Leading a controversial life in his youth is clearly paying off in old age."
