Slim : An Australian Biker's Tale of Sex & Drugs, Cops & Violence
One man, one bike, a whole lotta trouble--a biker memoir Meet Slim: he bought his first motorcycle, a Bridgestone 175 cc, at age 16 in 1968. Since then, he's been in and out of trouble--mainly in--and experienced the thrills and perils of riding on the highway. He has been a guest inside some of Australia's toughest jails, where he learned a lifetime's worth of human behavior and handy life skills such as how not to do an armed hold-up. Never one to shy from a punch or retreat from a fight, Slim is as tough as they come. If something's worth doing, it's worth overdoing. He sees no point in fearing the unknown, whether it be cops, brothers, or betrayers. Slim's firsthand account takes readers into the world of bikers' clubs, built around motorcycles and the men who ride. And the moral of the story? Just a life lived on Slim's terms through fists and boots, but always with an unswerving loyalty to the international brotherhood.
