This motorcycling guidebook is written for people in their 40s to their 60s who are interested in riding motorcycles. In recent years, the older rider has become the largest segment of motorcycle riders, and many in this age group see this as a great time to begin riding. Philip Buonpastore has written a book specific to those in this age group, providing advice for both first-time riders, as well as those getting back to riding after years off a motorcycle. The first half of his book builds on the basic steps of taking a motorcycle safety class (required in most states) and getting a motorcycle license, to considerations of style, size and price when purchasing your first motorcycle. Following chapters discuss adding safety accessories as well as comfort conveniences to the bike, purchasing motorcycle-specific (protective) clothing and safety gear, and more. The second half of his book contains stories of the author’s motorcycle tours around the United States, with insights and philosophies acquired from years of motorcycle travel, as well as his photography of the locales and some excellent riding roads around the country.
