The long-departed Steve McQueen is still the coolest man on two wheels. Even thirty years after his death, Steve McQueen remains a cultural icon. His image continues to appear in advertising and pop culture and his fan base spans from car lovers to racing enthusiasts to motorcycle obsessives. In his movies, McQueen's character always had an envy-inducing motorcycle or car, but in his personal life, motorcycles were always McQueen's first true love. McQueen's Motorcycles focuses on the bikes that the King of Cool raced and collected. From the first Harley McQueen bought when he was an acting student in New York to the Triumph "desert sleds" and Huskys he desert raced all over California, Mexico, and Nevada, McQueen was never without a stable of two wheelers. His need for speed propelled him from Hollywood into a number of top off-road motorcycle races, including the Baja 1000, Mint 400, Elsinore Grand Prix, and even as a member of the 1964 ISDT team in Europe. Determined to be ahead of the pack, McQueen maintained his body like it was a machine itself. He trained vigorously, weight lifting, running, and studying martial arts. Later in his life, as he backed away from Hollywood, his interests turned to antique bikes and he accumulated an extensive collection, including Harley-Davidson, Indian, Triumph, Brough Superior, Cyclone, BSA, and Ace motorcycles. Today, McQueen still has the Midas touch; anything that was in the man's possession is a hot commodity. McQueen's classic motorcycles sell for top dollar at auctions, always at a multiple of what the same bike is worth without the McQueen pedigree. McQueen's Motorcycles reveals these highly sought-after machines in gorgeous photography and full historical context.

Ewan McGregor und sein Kumpel Charley Boorman wollen es noch einmal wissen: Nach ihrem abenteuerlichen Trip rund um die Welt geht es dieses Mal vom nördlichsten Punkt Großbritanniens, dem kleinen Nest John O’Groats in den schottischen Highlands, südwärts bis nach Kapstadt in Südafrika. Das ganz große Abenteuer beginnt, als die beiden die gepflegten Teerstraßen Europas hinter sich lassen. In Afrika erwarten sie– neben der überwältigenden Gastfreundschaft der Einheimischen– Sandstürme (Libyen), üble Offroadpisten (Kenia), Schlammschlachten (Äthiopien) und ein rasender Elefant, der McGregor nach dem Leben trachtet (Botswana). Ein weiteres Roadmovie voller Risiken, Überraschungen und unvergesslicher Begegnungen.

Steve McQueen touched the world through his larger-than-life onscreen persona portraying characters that were flawed and realistic. He played his roles to perfection due to his own imperfections and the bitter realism of his early life. As he once said, he had seemingly lived an entire lifetime before his 18th birthday, all of which shines through in his signature blue-eyed icy stares. His legacy on film was cemented with Bullittand Le Mans--the first made him an international superstar while the latter nearly bankrupted and killed him. Today, they're among his most popular films. He held nothing back on screen or in life, and today he is remembered and revered not only for his acting but for his racing prowess and the world-class automobile and motorcycle collection he amassed in a relatively short amount of time. Vehicles once owned, driven, or raced by "the King of Cool" habitually sell for double or triple what their provenance-lacking counterparts do. Ask any 25-year-old car or motorcycle nut, born more than a decade after his death, who Steve McQueen is, and they'll immediately recognize the collector and racer but make no mention of the actor. Author Tyler Greenblatt has waded through the plethora of information available to compile 1,001 of the most interesting Steve McQueen facts in this cumulative volume that is sure to keep fans of the actor, racer, and collector enthralled for hours.
