This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Eh.... I couldn't imagine too many
What was most disappointing about Walter F. Kern’s story?
The voices, the way the stories were told. Poorly scripted and read. This could have been better done by a bunch of bikers sitting around a bar with a mic in the middle them all. Not tremendously entertaining. I only made it through 12 "stories" and I couldn't take it anymore.
Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 50 Wild Motorcycle Tales?
All of them between the beginning and end.
Any additional comments?
I really don't think this was worthy of a book. I tell stories all the time but I don't make a book out of them.

This is not my style of audio, by theme and form so I may not be the best critic but I decided to give it a chance and it was ok.
I tended to like the shorter stories vs the longer ones. I felt them all to be middle of the road and not over the top amazing but not terrible. I read a review that said it was bar room talk and that is a completely accurate description. I felt like these were stories I would overhear at a bar and be completely content eavesdropping on.
The narration was more like story telling and not a narrative. Again, more like overhearing a story than a book meant to suck you in and keep you there.
Struggled to listen to it all, the people where reading off a page like robots, it was like listening to a car show that has those beautiful women talking that may speak well and pronunciate but come across wrong. Very americanised for it seams those that have just spent thousands on a new Harley to ride once or twice a year.

It's a shame. Most of the stories were really interesting but they were mostly read in flat monotone. The worst culprit is the bloke who did Chopper Clause, I ended up skipping the stories he read. I'd still recommend the book though!
