Terry the Tramp: The Life and Dangerous Times of a One Percenter
|Author:||Keith R. Ball|
This book takes you on a turbulent ride through the life of Terry "the Tramp," long-time leader of one of the most notorious motorcycle clubs of all time, the Vagos MC.
Some folks find their way to the bright white side of the tracks, but there's a small percentage who run through the dark alleys of life. Even a smaller portion of those survive.
Terry "the Tramp," born in 1947 to a broken middle-class home in Alhambra, California, grew up with a violent chip on his shoulder. Terry became the international president of one of the most notorious one-percenter motorcycle clubs in southern California, the Vagos MC, and remained in office through upheaval, indictments, drugs, and gang wars for 26 years, until he was unceremoniously extricated. He is still a member after 42 years and never went to prison until 2010. This book takes the reader on a turbulent ride through Terry's notorious life, each page sizzling with violent tales wrapped in a razor-sharp edge. Through it all, we come to learn what propelled this stout, unassuming man into a leadership role lasting over two decades.
In addition to being a former member of the Hells Angels MC (in good standing), author Keith R. Ball (Wilmington, CA) has edited and published rumbling motorcycle magazines for over 40 years. He currently publishes Bikernet, the largest custom motorcycle website in the world, with over 125,000 unique users coming to his site every month. Ball has written four motorcycle novels and two non-fiction books.
