+1 this is great info and I plan on printing and handing it out when riding as a group.

I would also recommend reading this first:
Sport Riding Techniques: How To Develop Real World Skills for Speed, Safety, and Confidence on the Street and Track (Paperback)
by Tom Morgan (Contributor), Kenny Roberts (Foreword), Nick Ienatsch (Author)


and this second:

Total Control: High Performance Street Riding Techniques (Paperback)
by Lee Parks (Author)


After reading both these books and applying each technique you'll increase your skill level tremendously. I still refer to them when riding.

Keith Code's books are awesome also but geared more toward track riding but excellent books none the less.

I've bought TWO copies of SRT , one of which I had highlighted . Don't let noobs borrow your books , you may never see them again .
How does Total Control compare ? I'm gonna pick up another copy of SRT soon ,hopefully ....

I used to race an FZR400 in formula III against Nick from 89-91 at Willow Springs.
He was as great a person off the track as he was a racer on the track.
Very unpretencious and easy to hang with.

"The Pace" is what i made for myself after my close call during the summer. I rarely touch my brakes in the canyons any more. although i was riding WOT a lot, but thats mainly because I had a 250cc thumper lol.

Of all of the Gurus of the sport, Nick Ienatsch, "Sport Riding Techniques", and Reg Pridmore's, "Smooth Riding the Pridmore Way", are my two favorites. If your riding on the street, a good book to start with is "The Motorcycle Safety Foundation Guide to Motorcycling Excellence".

Thumbs up

If everyone thought like this riders as a whole would have a solid rep. As a novice rider I can appreciate intelligent advice! Must read the books now.
