Amazon.com Reviews Reviewer: Michael Clark from Los Angeles, CA, February 28, 2001 The best book by far on motorcycle riding dynamics. I have been riding for over 15 years and have read everything under the sun about it. This book has become my personal Bible on motorcycling and it's the only one I constantly re-read. Code's first couple chapters covering "survival reactions" and how they affect one's riding are some of the most valuable things any rider (street or track) can know. The rest of the book goes very in depth into the dynamics of motorcycle control. This serves to benefit the performance rider more than any other, but it's still useful to even a casual rider. I would still recommend a Motorcycle Safety Course for new riders. This is not meant to teach beginners on the very basics of motorcycling or how to ride in traffic. Yes, the book is poorly written but that's secondary to what it's actually teaching you. You want good writing? Go buy a Tom Clancy novel. You want to become a better, safer motorcycle rider? Get this book and never stop referring to it.
