Libyans are now free to ride their machines without being hassled by the man.
Fakhri Al-Hassi used to ride his bike in the streets of Benghazi during Gadaffi’s rule, but was often arrested and harassed by the police for wearing leather clothes and badges which they said promoted imperialist ideas…
The (Berynatchi C)lub, which is one of the only two biker clubs in eastern Libya, now has 55 members. For Fakhri, these clubs are a good chance to show that the revolution was not only political, but that it affected all parts Libyan society.

This Austrian electric wonder has styling inspired by a cuttlefish, or maybe Cookie Monster, and cool hub-center steering. We wanted to ask the guys at Johammer about the design, but no one replied to our inquiries.

“Dennis, because he was very, very egocentric, and he was a photographer himself and he did so many things, he just wanted to do everything. Some tensions arose, and after this shoot I thought it would be very difficult to go on working with him. And I left and put away the material and went on with my life. I couldn’t go on working with Dennis. I put away the film, so nobody’s seen these pictures.”

Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart – and her virginity – to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn’t have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach’s step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he’s never forgotten.
She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious – her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach’s a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah’s only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands – with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club – to give them a better life.
Living with outlaw bikers wasn’t Sophie’s plan for her son, but Ruger isn’t giving her a choice. He’ll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she’ll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way.
