Beginning with a brief overview of the world of motorcycles—the origins, the legendary designs, the advent of sport motorcycles, and other topics—this guide goes on to describe the history of motorcycles in film and discusses the history of some of the major makes, including BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, and Triumph. It also contains an extensive listing of some of the most important, mythic, and revolutionary bikes in the world, with the brand, engine type, engine capacity, and country of origin of each. A glossary is provided at the end to help the uninitiated make sense of some of the jargon. This survey will appeal both to motorcycle enthusiasts and those interested in learning more about a vehicle that has evolved from mere mode of transport to an iconic symbol of a certain lifestyle.

Comenzando con un breve repaso del mundo de las motocicletas—las orígenes, los diseños legendarios, la llegada de las motos deportivas y otros temas—esta guía procede a describir la historia de las motos en el cine y discute la historia de algunas de las marcas más importantes, incluyendo BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson y Triumph. Se incluye también un listado extenso de algunas de las motos más importantes, míticas y revolucionarias del mundo, con la marca, el motor, la capacidad del motor y el país de origen de cada uno. Se provee un glosario al final del libro para ayudar a los no iniciados a comprender la jerga. Este estudio atraerá tanto a los aficionados de las motocicletas como a aquellos interesados en aprender más sobre un vehículo que ha pasado de ser un mero método de transporte para convertirse en un símbolo icónico de cierto estilo de vida.
