You want to be on your motorcycle on the open road--but if you can t, then the next best place is the garage. There old bikes are restored, wild custom come to life, and friendships are made of beer, b.s., and bruised knuckles. These are the garages where this book takes you--from the old firehouse to the lavishly finished tin shed to the plain old two-car attached structure harboring the treasured bike while the family car sits out in the weather. Motorcycle Dream Garages opens the doors to sixteen palaces for two-wheeled work and play, among them a secret one in Chicago housing over one hundred rare and collectible bikes at a location known only to members of an underground club; a converted firehouse in St. Paul; a marble palace in Washington DC; and a variety of luxury motorcycle garages owned by racers and celebrities both in the US and Europe.

About the author (2009)

Born and raised on the banks of the Brill River in northern Wisconsin, Lee Klancher has been chronicling motorcycle and outdoor adventures big and small since the early 1990s. The writer and photographer loves to explore off-beat topics and places that range from covering bitterly contested land use issues in Northern Minnesota to exploring how New Orleans rebounded from the ravages of Katrina for the 2006 Mardi Gras celebration. His favorite adventure articles have covered riding the treacherous 300-mile track that crosses the Bolivian portion of the Amazon jungle, scaring himself senseless on Slovenia s Mount Triglav, crossing the northeast Australian Outback on Honda XRs, and hustling a Kawasaki 400 through the tight curves of the Japanese island of Hokkaido. His other interests include mountain biking, dive bars, racquetball, and college hockey. His writing and photography appears regularly in Men s Journal, Motorcyclist, Ultimate Motorcycling, Draft, Motorcycle Product News, and Motorcycle Cruiser. Lee lives in Austin, Texas, and you can see more of his work at www.Leeklancher.com.
