Sometimes the best time to start or catch up on a book is wintertime. Brew a pot of coffee, start a fire, and chill the hell out for a while in your favorite chair. We’ve gone through piles of books and have pulled out a few that’ll serve up some solid reading sessions over the next few months. We tried to focus on different types, from historical timelines with amazing photography that would make killer coffee-table companions, to travelogues for those looking to get on the road without leaving the living room. We’ve even included a book that serves as one part inspiration and one part instruction as it uncovers ideas and methods of customization for different types of motorcycle brands. Whatever type of bike you ride, and whatever type of rider you are, there’s a book here that will develop into your best buddy this winter. There’s a lot of ground to cover, so let’s take a look already.
