Learn the real stories behind legendary events in motorcycle outlaw history.
Pretty much everything the world has ever heard about one-percenter motorcycle clubs has been pure, unadulterated bullshit. Take the so-called Hollister riot of 1947 that started it all. LIFE magazine convinced America that what Hunter Thompson called "The Menace" was about to ride into town spewing rage and 30-weight motor oil, and America believed it.
So what really happened in Hollister? Greatest One-Percenter Myths, Mysteries, and Rumors Revealed divulges the truth about that incident and many more legendary events, including Charles Manson’s desire for a biker army, what really happened to the Easy Rider bikes, and an examination of the mystery of the Waco shootings.
