Two authors that I know well have recently had new books hit the market from Motorbooks. 

Norm DeWitt's "Grand Prix Motorcycle Racers. The American Heroes" is a great overview of not only those American racers with the greatest amount of success in Grand Prix racing, but also the Pioneers who opened the door for Americans to go to Europe, and the Contenders who went over, but didn't become a world champion. Norm shares the stories told to me by Kenny Roberts, Freddie Spencer, Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz, Kenny Roberts Jr., Nicky Hayden and more. Price is listed at $27 and the ISBN is 978-0-7603-3468-3.

Dain Gingerelli collaborated with photographer Randy Leffingwell to produce "Harley-Davidson Museum Masterpieces." The full color, softbound, 240 page book highlights 51 of the 450 motorcycles in the Harley-Davidson collection at the newly opened, 130,000 square foot, Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. Price is $19.99 and the ISBN is 978-0-7603-3894-0.
