Book Description

March 2003
Contemporary sport bikes accelerate faster, brake harder, and cut through corners deeper than ever before. These technologically advanced motorcycles are exhilarating to ride, but to really get the most out of a motorcycle’s performance capabilities a rider must develop his or her own personal performance. Riders need to take their skills to the next level.

Now, in this book written specifically for sport riders, well-known journalist, racer, and riding school instructor Nick Ienatsch provides the tools and techniques to help riders analyze and develop that personal performance. If you’re an experienced rider, Nick will help you hone and perfect your skills, operate controls with even greater finesse, and apply race-proven techniques on the track—as well as on the street. If you’re a beginning rider, Nick will show you how to develop proper skills and safety habits that will add to your motorcycling enjoyment and build your confidence. Whatever your current riding ability, Nick will teach you to safely find the absolute limit of bike and rider.

First Sentence
Take a look at the performance figures of any modern street bike, most of which have sub-three-second zero-to-sixty times that beat the most potent supercars, and it's obvious that riding skill is being far outpaced by motorcycle technology. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book on Sport Riding Ever July 16 2003
Nick Ienatsch's SPORT RIDING TECHNIQUES is easily the most beautifully produced and clearly and consumately written book on motorcycle racing and street riding, whatever your level of competence. I would recommend it to anyone who has completed a basic motorcycle safety course, whether their goal is to more safely and thourghly enjoy their street riding or to sharpen their technique for racing or track days. This, unlike most instructional books, is a pleasure to read. Ienatsch rides--I've seen him--and writes with equal skill. I've read it twice now and keep going back to it to practice the the techniques he limns so beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading, great advice Sept. 24 2003
As a novice rider I purchased this book with the hope of gaining some expert advice. It was the perfect choice. The writing and advice is clear, concise, and easy to understand. Topics such as traction, throttle control, and turning techniques all helped me in gaining confidence on the road. This book should be required reading for all sport bike owners.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master Speaks June 14 2003
When a rider and writer of Nick Ienatsch's stature puts all his wisdom, knowledge and experience into a book, it's time to sit up and listen carefully, especially these days when 100-HP 600s and 140-HP 1,000s are ripping 10-second quarter miles at 140+ (G-SXR 1000 tests) and are available to anyone with $ whether or not they have a clue.
Nick is among the very best writers about motorcycling, ever, up there with Don Canet and Kevin Cameron (no point in ranking them subjectively, because all three are excellent). He is also a champion racer, primarily on 250s. Having ridden on the road with him, I attest to his smooth, skilled way of proceeding, and his concern for safety.
This book should be required reading for every rider who puts a wheel on road or track. Once read, it should be memorized and used as the core belief set that will make a rider quicker and safer, and every ride more enjoyable, including anyone else who is along for the pleasure of it. No one should dare suggest that he or she is 'above it,' knows better and 'doesn't need' the lessons Ienatsch teaches. We all do. This book will, among other things, keep a rider alive to ride again and enjoy one of the most interesting and pleasurable ways to get down the road devised by Man.
Don't argue with me. Get it.
PS One of life's ironies is that Ienatsch, one of the best writers on motorcycling who ever puts finger to keyboard, doesn't have a regular gig and is only read intermittently in CYCLE WORLD. Let's hope that changes, soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must read for New and Experienced Riders May 21 2004
I am a new rider and my skills improved dramatically with each chapter. This book is an easy and quick read. In fact, its totally engaging.
Nick shares his years of experience and demonstrates that safety and speed are not mutually exclusive. By taking his advice to heart, one can learn to feel the relationship that must exist between the rider, the machine and the pavement. Once understood and practiced, you'll be carving up the road as quickly and safely as possible. What a thrill!
Experienced riders will appreciate that each chapter ends with a "Lesson's from the Racetrack" section. So the tips and/or refresers make this book a must read for any rider, in my humble opinion.
If nothing else, its worth the price for the incredible photos. Enjoy and I'll see you on the coast. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality Printing and Great Pictures June 28 2003
The content is also very good. Nick presents the basics of sport riding in a pleasent way. I liked the concept of 100 point of traction he presents. This is always in my mind when I am riding in the twisties. A must have for the less experienced rider.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read May 7 2003
It starts off with the basics even a rookie rider would know but then it grows into more detail with every chapter. I bought it because I liked Nick's article "The Pace." For the novice rider, you'll know most of the content but I'm sure there are some things you'll learn from it. The way he describes limits on cornering and braking with the tire point system is a nice fresh approach. It will be a great book for someone who is new to Sport Bikes. It's also good for those who have been riding because you can never stop learning or looking for ways to improve on your riding. It's worth the money in my opinion.
