    Simply the best sport riding book available!

    As a riding coach/instructor I see allot of new riders. One of the first things I do is recommend this book. Those that read it perform signifigantly better than those that don't. While some may not understand the physics of riding, this book does a phenominal job of explaining it in a manner most can comprehend. Geared towards the track many might think it;s not for them. Track or street the physics are all the same. Simply put, this book WILL make you a better, safer rider!!

    Great book, worth $18 for sure!

    The only reason this book doesnt get 5 starts is because its not written terribly well. The information it contains, however, is very good, direct and understandable. I am suprised that some of these principles were not discussed in the beginner and advanced MSF courses I have taken. You won't be sorry you picked this one up.

    Need to Know Info If You Ride

    Bought my first street bike, a CBR929RR but couldn't get into a riding course early enough so I bought this book to get a head start. It 'over prepared' me for the riding course I took and when the intructor congratulated me for my perfect score I mentioned 'Twist of The Wrist'. The Instructors were not surprised as they were very familiar w/ the book.

    Straight to the Track with this book

    I've read reviews that trash this book. Well, all I can say is if can't ride after reading this book, you should buy a moped. I bought this book and then took a non-Code racing school. They referred to Code's techniques (by name) in the school!!! This book rocks. Read it twice, read it three times, keep up your attention span, or you won't get any benefit. If you're looking for easy reading, forget it. You have to want to learn how to ride right. Doug Chandler's comments are insightful. It's amazing what goes through an AMA champ and former GP racer's mind. Roadracing World and Motorcycle Technology magazine's John Ulrich edited the book and it has a lot of his, 'honest journalize, not mindless cheerleading' style. If you read the magazine and like it, you'll love this. This book is way cheaper than bodywork. Read it, ride it, love it. Write a good review later.

    Improve your skills drastically

    this is a great book, and will be helpful to even the most conservative rider, and even more valuable to the one who desires to take his riding skills to the next level in no time, on or off the track. it explains why's and how's of braking cornering and accelerating in detail and will help you go faster, be safer and ride better.
