Journalist Dain Gingerelli is telling his life story online.

Gingerelli, currently the editor at Motorcycle Bagger magazine, is offering his latest book, "Motors for Nothing (Kicks for Free)" on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords as an e-book for $2.99.

Gingerelli, who's been riding since he got a new Honda S90 in 1965, has served as editor for multiple motorcycle magazines --  Street Chopper, Hot Bike, Custom Bike, Parts Magazine and IronWorks -- and has authored nine automotive and four motorcycle print books.

In addition to his experience as a writer, Gingerelli won amateur class championships in the AFM and CMC organizations, and was co-holder of four FIM world speed endurance records set with Honda in 1986.

Gingerelli says his book offers an insider's perspective of racing, test rides and writing about the industry during the glory days of the motorcycle industry in the 1970s and 1980s.

"I also get up close and personal about some of the bikes that I've owned, ridden, raced and, yes, even crashed," Gingerelli said. "I even divulge how I earned the Daingerous Dain moniker."
