Accomplished motojournalist Dain Gingerelli journeys into cyber space with his latest book, Motors For Nothing (Kicks For Free).

Enthusiasts can download the book that includes archive photos for $2.99. That’s less than the cost of a newsstand magazine today!

Ever wonder what really takes place during a new-motorcycle test session? What do you do when your motorcycle’s headlight bulb blows out during the dead of night while traveling 160 mph? Care to take a lap around a race track alongside racing legends Kenny Roberts, Eddie Lawson, Bubba Shobert and other greats? Do you really want to know how those cool action photos that you see in the magazines are created? If so, then this e-book is for you because Gingerelli writes about those very things and more. “I also get up close and personal about some of the bikes that I’ve owned, ridden, raced and, yes, even crashed,” said Dain, adding, “I even divulge how I earned the Daingerous Dain moniker.”

There has yet to be a motorcycle book like this one. Motors For Nothing won’t necessarily teach you how to be a motorcycle magazine editor, but it’ll show you what it’s like to be on staff to ride – and write about – some of the most exotic two-wheel machines in the world.

Motors For Nothing (Kicks For Free) is Gingerelli’s first e-book. He has authored nine automotive and four motorcycle print books, and he has been editor-in-chief for six national motorcycle publications. “My most memorable times in the industry, though,” said Dain, “were the eight years spent as Cycle Guide Magazine’s Sport Editor. And many of the tales in Motors For Nothing are from that chapter of my life as a motojournalist.”

Motors For Nothing (Kicks For Free) is available now by logging on to Amazon, Kobo, Banes & Noble and Smashwords. Also: Dain Gingerelli is available for interviews, comments or additional information to suit your publication’s needs. Contact him at:
