Freud and Motorcycles

 

FREUD WOULD NEVER UNDERSTAND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ME AND MY MOTORCYCLE

($19.95 plus $5.00 S/H USA) ISBN 0-935151-19-2

This 150-page book, now in its 2nd edition, is a well-known pop psychology look at what the 20th century brings to motorcycling. Tongue in cheek, Dr. Frazier pokes fun at the American motorcycling world. Actually entitled 'FREUD WOULD NEVER UNDERSTAND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ME AND MY MOTORCYCLE,' this cult publication has found its way to readers ranging from US President Bill Clinton, Senator Ben Night Horse Campbell and entertainer Jay Leno. The book has been the basis of several radio talk shows and widely written about throughout the world.

Dr. Frazier says: "Motorcycling, for many, is a form of therapy. America was the largest and quickest culture in the world to grasp, and hold onto, the theories of Sigmund Freud. Today we find Freud slipping in favor of other forms of therapy. An avid motorcyclist would be amongst the first to scoff at the trade-off between an hour on the couch with a Freudian therapist versus an hour-long motorcycle ride. Freud would not understand our two-wheel therapy. He never rode a motorcycle."
