Bike Lust Harleys, Women, and American Society Barbara Joans Part roaring adventure, part intimate ethnography, a portrait of women in the biker world.
Bike Lust roars straight into the world of women bikers and offers us a ride. In this adventure story that is also an insider's study of an American subculture, Barbara Joans enters as a passenger on the back of a bike, but soon learns to ride her own.
As an anthropologist she untangles the rules, rituals, and rites of passage of the biker culture. Bike Lust travels a landscape of contradictions.
Outlaws still chase freedom on the highway, but so do thousands of riders of all classes, races, and colors. But she also gives us the first close look at women who ride in their own right, on their own bikes, as well as a new understanding of changing world of male bikers.
These are ordinary women's lives made extraordinary, adding a dimension of courage to the sport not experienced by males, risking life and limb for a glimpse of the very edge of existence. This community of riders exists as a primal tribute to humanity's lust for freedom.
Women are bikers, too, and Barbara Joans is one of them. Bike Lust shatters myths and introduces us to a new generation of 'gender traitor' bikers, many of whom are wives, mothers, lesbians, feminists, and anti-feminists. This is an inspired meditation. Barbara Joans, an anthropologist, has found her tribe and she loves them. She rides a Harley-Davidson Low Rider. For an excerpt from Bike Lust, visit this of our website. for excerpt.
