Though this helped me to learn how to ride, I'm glad I bought "Proficient Motorcycling" by David L. Hough at the same time. (Thanks Amazon for recommending it!) It includes everything in this book and more. I found much of this book to waste too much time on theory that really didn't help you learn how to drive a motorcycle. The traction pie charts on the cover are an example--interesting, but how do apply it when I'm sitting on the bike! Just go with David Hough's book and save yourself a few bucks.

After taking the MSF course I bought this book and others as a follow-up. My main disappointment with the MSF Guide to Motorcycling Excellence is that it little farther than the booklet that came with the course.
The information contained in the book is obviously valuable and correct (given that MSF are the subject matter experts on motorcycle safety) but there is not a lot of depth to the material in the book. It is written in a push button manner lacking sufficient exmplanations of the "why" of the techniques it describes.
If you are looking for a simple to read, basic guide to motorcycle safety this book is probably for you. If you know nothing about motorcycling then this is a good (if a bit expensive start).
If you want to learn more, are detailed oriented, or need to really understand something before you can apply it, I would recommend looking for one of the other books on motorcycling that are available.

Good material, excellent for review, presented very well. Makes good sense to read up from the experts when you can't actually take a course.

A review of the MSF course I took. A lot of technical explanations I couldn't get, such as degrees of lean angle. I would have preferred this to be an easier and simpler read.

A good book, aimed primarily at the beginner, though experienced riders may find it useful as a refresher.

This book is great. I was planning on taking the advanced class again this spring, but alas, they are booked up through September in my area. So, I picked up this book; it's a great supplement to the class, and an excellent refresher-read for those who have taken the course in the past. The drawings that illustrate the techniques are excellent, and sound safe-rider advice is prevalant throughout. The text is clear and easy to understand, and the book is organized very well. The chapter on counter-steering is the best I've seen.
Not as good as taking the class, but valuable just the same.

I just started riding in February 2002. They say "nothing beats experience". This is true. If you learn it right! I bought this book and read it several times before taking my written test and safety course. I breezed through both with confidence. The knowledge this book has is invaluble! Buy it, read it, absorb it. Then practice the techniques over and over. You'll ride safer and with confidence.
