If you were to ask a biker what the meaning of life is, you'd probably get a very short answer, or a very long one.

If you asked Craig Bourne, you'd get a whole book.

His new book, "Philosophical Ridings: Motorcycles and the Meaning of Life", will be released to the public a week from now on April 25th. He works as a professor of philosophy at the University of Cambridge, and rides a Ducati when he's not professing.

You can reserve this book online at Amazon.com...

Here's a quote from the book's publisher...
From Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance to The Motorcycle Diaries, to be a biker is to be on the road to the meaning of life. What should our attitude be towards danger and death? Can your motorcycle be as much of a work of art as a Michelangelo painting? Should the biker's rebel image be celebrated? And where does the concern for the environment figure in all of this? Philosopher and motorcyclist Craig Bourne shows for the first time the thoughtful side of the biker, and takes us on a fun trip through the philosophy of motorcycles.
Though I'm not sure what good it would do for a veteran biker to read this book. It might be something to give to a friend who keeps bugging you about getting killed on a motorcycle. But then again, I haven't read the book yet.
