By far the best book on the subject to date. Much easier to read than the Keith Code books. Fantastic information, well presented. If you're interested in sport biking, buy this book.
The only instructional book I have ever read that was hard to put down and I didn't until I was almost finished. It is so obvious when an author is passionate about his subject and Lee is that. His riding concepts make sense from a technical, practical and spiritual perspective. He brings humor and optimism to a great subject in way that few are able duplicate. If you love to ride, like to ride or have thought about riding you should buy the book. When you're done you will want to give it to a riding buddy but make sure you get it back. It's also a great reference to keep as you get better and better at riding motorcycles.
Great read. I recommend this to anyone wanting to improve their skills.
