Motorcycle riding is invariably an affair of the spirit, one that too frequently allows passion to dictate decisions. Bennett (Cheapwheels, Pocket, 1989) who covers virtually all aspects of buying, maintaining, and riding a motorcycle, cautions that knowledge and reason, not passion, must be the underpinnings of any motorcycling decision. He encourages riders to learn about mechanical operations, dealers' business practices, and the practical aspects of riding so that they may select the right bike, make it last longer, and save money. Bennett exhibits a sound knowledge of various kinds of bikes and riding and provides specific and usable information in a number of areas. His chapters on used bikes and safe riding are especially good. Thorough and well written, this book should appeal to beginning riders. Recommended for public libraries but suitable for academic libraries as well.
