See the real “easy riders” this fall at the Massey, Crystal Bridges’ temporary gallery in downtown Bentonville. Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders presents photographs and excerpts from Danny Lyon’s 1968 book The Bikeriders, a seminal work of modern photojournalism based on Lyons’ four years on the road with the Chicago Outlaws. Riding a 650-cc Triumph motorcycle and armed with a Nikon, a Rolleiflex and a seven-pound portable tape recorder, Lyon documented dirt track racing and motorcycle gang life with photographs and stories that are as raw and compelling today as they were when The Bikeriders was published decades ago.
