Straight facts about riding! A Twist of the Wrist, the acknowledged number one book on rider improvement for ten years straight, brought riders worldwide to a new understanding of vital riding skills. Uncovers and traces, action by action, the direct links between man and machine.
The thrill of motorcycle racing tugs at the heartstrings of anyone who own a Harley, Honda, Yamaha, or any other cycle. Since most individuals do not have access to a racetrack, this enthusiasm results in far too many accidents, some fatal, on public streets. Code writes for those who do have access to tracks where riding techniques can be perfected. He has many years of racing behind him, and his earlier popular handbook, A Twist of the Wrist: The Motorcycle Road Racers Handbook ( LJ 3/1/83), is the classic guide to rider improvement. Here, he employs down-to-earth questions, answers, and examples of high-performance riding. The excellent illustrations and margin notes are useful. Both beginning and advanced racers will find this an excellent book. Highly recommended for libraries with a motorcyclist clientele.
