Tao of the Ride
Motorcycles and the Mechanics of the Soul
By Garri Garripoli. 5.5" x 8.5", 142 pages, paperback. Tao of the Ride is not so much about Garripoli's recent two-year adventure in China studying with martial arts masters and traditional Chinese healers as it is about the thoughts that result from a lifetime of "breaking the mold." In this book, he takes the ancient Chinese philosophy of Taoism and explains it in a down-to-earth style that only long, loud cruises on a motorcycle could inspire.
