Celebrate the 80th anniversary of the engine that changed the motorcycle world. Motorcycle technology lagged far behind automotive technology since the earliest days of the internal-combustion engine. All that changed in 1936 when Harley-Davidson introduced the Model EL. For the first time ever, a company was manufacturing a high-performance overhead-valve engine for the masses. And what an engine it was -- in addition to bringing state-of-the-art technology to the motorcycling world -- a work of art. Because of the shape of its rocker covers, the engine was given a nickname to match its looks: the Knucklehead. The technology used in this engine was so advanced that it laid the foundation for every future Harley-Davidson motorcycle, including the current models built in the 21st century. To this day every cruiser style motorcycle still adheres to the shape of that original Knucklehead. Harley-Davidson Knucklehead: Eighty Years tells the entire Knucklehead story, from the very first overhead-valve V-twin Harley produced for the public through the post-war models, continuing right up until today, when aftermarket manufacturers reproduce complete Knucklehead crate engines because of its continuing popularity.

Adam Smyer. Lomuckleheads “Adam Smyer's exploration of rage is unflinching,

"By setting his novel in the '90s, Smyer, who lives in Oakland, has crafted some brutal deja vu. As [protagonist] Marcus reflects on Rodney King, the Million Man March and the Oklahoma City bombing, we think of Freddie Gray, Black Lives Matter and school shootings that have become a way of life. And when Marcus laments San Francisco's dwindling black population, here we are more than 20 years on, and it's only gotten worse. We should all be furious." --San Francisco Chronicle "This book is bold in how it treats the reader as an insider to the reality of American blackness. It can be, in turns, lyrically poignant, cynical, hilarious, and infuriating." --Foreword Reviews, Starred Review "In this comic debut novel, lawyer Marcus Hayes careens through the racially divisive 1990s while trying to manage his compulsive anger, chaotic love life, and economic misfortunes...Smyer gives Marcus a sardonic and hilarious voice reminiscent of a Paul Beatty protagonist and endows him with a troubled psychology that plumbs the nuances of black male identity." --Kirkus Reviews "Marcus is an intelligent, acerbic, and often hilarious narrator, bringing a fresh, biting perspective to the social and racial tensions of the time that, as debut novelist Smyer makes clear, are not particularly different from today." --Library Journal "While loss and loneliness are at its core, Knucklehead is a mordantly funny book." --San Francisco Chronicle, Recommended Reading roundup "While not strictly a crime novel, Smyer's debut Knucklehead does contain a whole lot of guns, violence, and rage, as well as plenty of love and sadness. A black lawyer in the late 80s through the mid-90s deals with micro and macro aggressions from a society determined to treat him as a criminal. Also, there are cats. Lots of cats." --Literary Hub, included in the Most Anticipated Crime, Mystery, and Thriller Titles of 2018 "While the provocative subject material will take readers to a sometimes-uncomfortable place, this brilliant debut is also deeply, darkly funny...This is one of those books that simply has to be discussed, as it managed to tackle difficult topics with unexpected humor and pathos. While Marcus is a troubled character, his journey and the choices he makes will provide rich meat for discussion about race in America and how justifiable anger can turn toxic." --IndiePicks Magazine "[A] masterpiece...In this, his debut narrative, Smyer dramatically encapsulates the ancestral trauma, the collective guilt and suffering of tens of millions of people. Indeed he has scored big. Real big...A must buy." --Kaitur News (Guyana) "Like Smyer, the book has a wicked sense of humor, even as it gives the reader a tour of the dystopian Clinton years. Comparisons to James Baldwin, Richard Wright, and Zora Neale Hurston are well earned, yet there are also strains of Anthony Burgess and Hubert Selby Jr. in Smyer's prose." --48 Hills "From page one, Knucklehead is a literary punch in the face. Adam Smyer's exploration of rage is unflinching, brave, and absolutely brilliant. There's so much energy in this debut you could put it in your tank and drive on it." --Mat Johnson, author of Loving Day In Knucklehead we meet Marcus Hayes, a black law student who struggles, sometimes unsuccessfully, with the impulse to confront everyday bad behavior with swift and antisocial action. The cause of this impulse is unknown to him. When Marcus unexpectedly becomes involved with the brilliant and kind Amalia Stewart, her love and acceptance pacify his demons. But when his demons return, he is no longer inclined to contain them.

The Shepherd The Knucklehead

Review submitted by educator, Jeri Lowe, 7/14/05: If you were a child of the I, Me, Mine generation and happened to rise out of the suburban catacombs with a little bit of your soul intact, then this book's for you. You will appreciate this flowery tome that mocks the overly educated, politically correct, and the flowery language league in a strange farce. However, the joy is in the journey. The author asks us to turn away from outside voices that distract from the search for inner truth. One must listen quietly for the inner voice that never lies. For those of us who made it through the scourge of the seventies, Chris is a voice that reminds us that we are part of all we have met. Some food for thought, if you have a pocketful of plankton and a willingness to do something about poverty and ignorance then by all means do so! Besides, The Shepherd and the Knucklehead serves a two-fold purpose- your soul and your vocabulary will be enriched at the same time! How's that for duality? Tripping through the seventies in a psychedelic haze through the doors of perception in a cartoon graveyard, Schiavo's world is eerily reminiscent of an acid flashback. It's a little like trying to find that good, safe place before everything turns into a total bummer. At times, the read is slightly schizoid; however the author's world functions well on eight tracks and weaves, an intricate tale. However, it's both the duality and the war of man. Oliver Tweed can be construed as a part of the author's, disassociate episode, waxing prophetic about poverty and possible solutions. He beseeches us to, "Kelp him if we can, because he's feeling down" There is certain magic within man, and it's in duality that we can find beauty and empathy. OT leaves us with a certain feeling everything will be all right again. The author dares us to jump through the chasm of Lake Duality and explore a parallel universe somewhere between fact and fiction. Schiavo explores his own battle with his duality in a temporal world that is fleeting, yet beautiful. The Shepherd and The Knucklehead is a delightful story of humanity at its deepest level, one part tragedy and one part comedy. Schiavo's, a self-declared "Soldier in the war on poverty", too he beseeches us to join him by exploring how we are human and divine. Christ was fully human and fully divine, and by following his example he asks if we love him we must follow him. It's a simple, bare necessity of life to do what is right, or attempt to do so, instead of following the crowd and caring for ourselves only, we can show our inherent humanity by demonstrating, "Deeds not Creeds" We need to take responsibility for what's going on now. However, the duality of man is according to Aquinas based on contingency and necessity. Not one to fly overboard or on board by the constraints of the overly educated, the Flowery Language League, or the politically correct, Chris cautions us to stop listening to endlessly loquacious and biased outside world chatter, it's better to explore the inner workings of a man. Instead of endless talking we should develop the soul and the voice within that we all are capable of reaching, if we only ask. Or are we too busy spewing a not so delicate spin zone of babbling on forever? Why not practice a Zen like mantra and ask our bicameral voices to become our guides? Jim Morrison reminded us that " No one here gets out alive" for those of us who wrestled with demons under a Wishing Tree on a grey New Jersey day trawling for adventure by the "lake" of our own making- in the end, this book is about love - pure and simple. I raise my glass in a toast to the author and his multiple identities listen very hard and help them eat kelp! Matthew 7:14 Narrow is the gate

A skittish motor-bike with a touch of blood in it is better than all the riding animals on earth."--T.E. Lawrence* * *In the early 1960s, few barns had been molested the way most have today, as seekers of old jalopies and other archaic mechanical remnants of bygone ages scour the countryside for unique trophies. Hell, some even abscond with parts of the building itself to panel their rec rooms. Back then, one of these virginal structures held the find of finds: a Harley-Davidson Knucklehead motorcycle. Beneath the debris, chickenshit and poorly applied barn paint, it had waited for years. Now, Boone and Chris were about to rescue it.

Ralph Gibsen isn't your typical spy. In fact, he may not be a spy at all. He's lumpy, blundering and abysmal at chatting up the fairer sex. Yet, he is attracting a significant amount of attention from the intelligence community. After all, as a 30-year Silicon Valley mainstay, he can phish your passwords, bust firewalls, and has developed software used by millions to circumvent government censorship. And now, he thinks he has stumbled upon a cabal who is pushing to misuse his own technology for world domination. Ralph helps create an educational Tool that maps a learner's neurological processes and pinpoints the exact moment a student learns. But the Tool can also manipulate people's beliefs. At least, that what several influential people think. Soon, Ralph finds himself the target of increasingly complex attacks on his businesses, reputation, freedom, and life. Ralph enlists an eclectic group of 'frenemies' to thwart this nefarious plot. McKenna may or may not still work for the CIA. Beautiful Eva may work for the Chinese government, who wants the Tool for themselves. Even Ralph's lovely wife Jen could be involved... Ralph simply isn't equipped to figure it out. And the world is closing in.

Next, he attends leading universities across the country for 12 years, while obtaining five college degrees. Finally, he visits 30 countries by his 30th birthday, while broadening his perspective and appreciation of the human spirit. 1) During the first 19 years of his life, Amir was engulfed in a war without realizing it.

He becomes obsessed with a goal to visit 30 countries before his 30th birthday, and embarks on an eye-opening quest throughout all corners of the globe. Amir relies on "street smarts" to escape danger, explore forbidden places, and survive on a few dollars a day. Curiosity leads him to intriguing destinations across Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the Caribbean. Million: Miraculously completing high school after being expelled, Amir reluctantly enrolls in community college. After his thirst for knowledge is awakened, he doubles his high school GPA and plunges into a 12-year college career across the country. In the process, Amir graduates from the top public university in New Jersey, receives his law degree from Florida's leading university in Miami, and obtains a doctorate in Los Angeles from one of the nation's top 25 universities.
