Motorcycle—The Definitive Visual History
Hardcover, 320 pages ($40)

Gearheads won’t be able to hit the brakes once they crack open this handsome decade-by-decade recap of two-wheeled motorized street adventure from the 19th century through today. It’s revved to the max with thousands of gorgeous, detailed full-color photos (many in close-up), stats on individual models and facts on the trailblazing brands that have become icons of the road, and even a pair of ready-to-frame glossy pull-out prints.
