    "The perfect man? A poet on a motorcycle. You know, the kind who lives on the edge, the free spirit. But he's also gotta have the soul of a poet and a brilliant mind. So, you know, good luck."
    Lucinda Williams

    "Rubber Side Down combines poetry, essays and photography to challenge the stereotype of the bad boy biker and chronicle the rise of the biker poet and biker poetry.

    Bad Luck

    By Wild Bill © copyright 1996 all rights reserved.

    A lot was said when I was bred
    'bout what I'd grow to be.
    My aunts and uncles never thought knuckels
    would be my destiny.

    That an old Pan head run with lead
    or a Shovel with chrome pipes,
    To be frank, would turn my crank
    and bikers be my types.

    Now to be straight I'll intimate
    the following non fiction,
    That the model that turned my throttle
    and caused this bike addiction

    Was the Evolution, that revolution
    in Harley Davidson design.
    See I'm no wrench in a pinch
    with old bikes in decline.

    I am in fact to be exact
    and everybody knows it,
    Just some schmuck with the bad luck
    to be a Biker Poet.

    Announcing the release of
    "Bikers Got Culture!"

    "Poetry for the discerning biker!"

    Though a serious poet, "Wild Bill" Rogers takes the reader into the humorous side of a lifestyle that is as unique to America as the cowboy and a culture that is largely misunderstood.

    Bikers Got Culture! contains over fifty poems and limericks of humor, wit, and a touch of the unnatural. The author speaks of a Biker Culture encompassing all walks of life from the lawful to the lawless and from the rich to the poor. "Wild Bill" takes the reader through an entertaining chronicle of the beginnings of what has become one of America's biggest icons using engaging characters, meter and rhyme, then introduces the reader to a sad sack affectionately given the handle of "Oilslick" a fast-talking, beer-drinking, oil-encrusted, bug be-speckled biker.

    From the mountains of Alaska to the sands of Daytona Beach, this is "Poetry for the discerning biker!"

    Now available from the publisher at PublishAmerica or Amazon and at Barnes & Noble.

    “Wild Bill” Rogers has been writing and riding most of his adult life. With his wife Terri he was the Co-Publisher and Editor of Midnight Sun Rider Magazine. His reporting, prose and poetry have been enjoyed throughout the U.S. in print and on the internet.

    Look what others ar saying about "Bikers Got Culture!"

    “Öyou can be assured that (Bikers Got Culture!) got me going in all ways essential to the aesthetic of poetry that matters artistically and culturally...(Wild Bill) really did it with this text; seriously, and with passion, (he) got it all here and it all works on many levels.” Dr. Martin Jack Rosenblum

    “ÖNot what I expected at all! ~To be honest I thought it would be above my head and I would need a dictionary or a guide to make my way through it...that I would be shaking my head saying " I don't get it." ~I had no idea Poetry (Biker or otherwise) would amuse me this way... I get the impression the writer could spin a tale about any subject...I'm hookedÖ” Michelle Andrea McAllister “Satisfied reader!”

    “ÖIt’s funny as hell!” Joe Gouveia “Poets Corner”
