HorizonsUnlimited description:

Written by a journalist from the saddle of her motorcycle, this book chronicles the bold world of women in motorcycling: the myths, the history, and subcultures of free-spirited riders with a passion for two wheels and the road. This is the first account of this little-known facet of women's rocky road to personal independence in America. Packed with stories and photographs of pioneering women and their machines from the first grande dames who hitched up their skirts to ride motorized bicycles at the turn of the century to the high-tech drag racers, stuntwomen and exotic adventure riders of today. "A woman's symphony on the road." The New York Times.
