Motorcycle Rider Basics

Six years and 75,000 miles ago I bought a Harley and re-entered the world of motorcycles at the age of 55, and I have been having a blast ever since! I also have made every beginner mistake in the book. Wait a minute, what book? There is no beginner mistake book. Well, there is now and I wish I would have had it six years go.I wrote this book so you can cash in on my experiences and save yourself time, money and hassle. Crammed with beginner mistakes, tips, how-to¿s and resources, it has what every new or re-entry rider needs to know about riding and gear. It¿s got all of the stuff they didn¿t tell you about selecting a starter bike, minimizing risk, riding safety, using the `friction zone¿, going where you look, buying the right gear the first time and many more basic rider topics. It is easy to read, well organized and laced with a little off-beat humor to make it fun.The single best thing I did when I started riding was to go through the MSF Basic Rider course. The next best thing I could have done would have been buying this book. Reading this book can minimize your learning curve and enable you to start really enjoying your motorcycle today.

Motorcycle Track Day Handbook

For years track days have been popular activities for European motorcyclists. In recent years it has become a very popular activity in the U.S. as well. As traffic laws become increasingly draconian, roads become increasingly congested, and motorcycles become increasingly capable, more people are taking their bikes to race tracks. Currently there are a number of organizations catering to people who attend track days. But many people who want to ride on racetracks don't attend track days because they don't know how to prepare themselves or their motorcycles for the racetrack. This book will provide tell them everything they need to know to hit the racetrack: how to prepare their motorcycles, how to find organizations that sponsor track days, where to attend track days, specific information for the major racetracks in the United States, information on track schools around the country, and much, much more.About the AuthorKent Larson, an accomplished racer and a control rider for NESBA, one of the country's leading track day organizations, contributed the chapter on track days to our high performance riding book Total Control. Larson lives in Woodbury, Minnesota.

Motorcycle Mastery

Written by an advanced motorcycle instructor with thirty-five years of daily riding under his belt, Motorcycle Mastery is written for riders who would like to take their riding to the next level. It is a commonly-held belief that riding well begins and ends with control of your machine. The author contends that mere control of your machine—while a necessary skill—is a small part of what it takes to be a competent, well-rounded, and, most importantly, a safe rider. Far more important are the skills necessary for truly being the master of our environment; for negotiating our way through the hazards we face every day out on the road in a safe, competent and masterly efficient manner. It is these skills that are presented in Motorcycle Mastery. Beginning with some basic control skills to lay the foundation, the author then takes us through more and more advanced techniques not taught in common motorcycle license courses with a view to really honing our skill level, and making us the very best riders we can be. • Observation • Visibility • Positioning • Planning • Observation Links • The System for Safe Motorcycle Riding • Safe Passing • Group Riding • Road hazards • Riding in Hazardous Conditions • And more…
