9780760338292: One Percenter: The Legend of the Outlaw Biker

From the editor-in-chief of Easyriders magazine, One Percenter presents an unprecedented social analysis of American outlaw biker culture. A longtime biker and self-proclaimed nonconformist, Dave Nichols is not a subtle man. “Bikers are the last wolves in a land of sheep,” he affirms—but the motivations of today’s biking culture stretch far back into the annals of human history. One Percenter: The Legend of the Outlaw Biker illuminates the origins of rebel mentality, which began far outside of cycling: with groups from the Mongols and Huns to the Vikings, from pirates to the gunslingers of the Old West. In his signature no-nonsense style, Nichols traces his own defiant mindset from ancient times all the way into the modern era, where this one-percenter perspective is best embodied by outlaw bikers. As biographical as it is insightful, One Percenter also touches on the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle, gives a brief history of Easyriders magazine, and unapologetically criticizes the U.S. media for what Nichols views as a biased, unfairly negative portrayal of motorcycle clubs. Complete with an exclusive collection of photographs taken by Kim Peterson, editor of In The Wind magazine, this book offers a fascinating and analytical discussion of the rebel ethos that has become a staple of American popular culture.

From the Back Cover:

There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to decide whether to conform to the dictates of society or break away and chart his own path. Ninety-nine percent of us choose to conform; the rest become outlaws. For this one percent, the outlaw motorcycle community offers sanctuary.

 

Motorcyclists have always been nonconformists to some extent; after all, if they weren’t, they’d drive Honda Accords instead of riding something as dangerous as a motorcycle. But the one percenters live the outlaw life 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One Percenter: The Legend of the Outlaw Bikers tells the story of this rebellion without a cause other than the pursuit of freedom and living to the extreme. One Percenter takes readers inside the belly of the beast.

From the Inside Flap:

Outlaw motorcyclists—the infamous “one percenters” labeled as outlaws by the American Motorcyclist Association—live life on the fringe. To survive, they’ve formed a new community, one with standards and values more in keeping with their own outlaw aesthetic, one that often takes the form of a motorcycle club.

 

One Percenter: The Legend of the Outlaw Bikers tells the story of this enigmatic embodiment of rebellion, from the earliest days of the subculture, when veterans returning from World War II began forming the first motorcycle clubs, to modern times, when the outlaw motorcycle subculture has evolved to the point of a cottage industry.
