Book Description

March 1 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

Although it has been years since I read this book,
And I have moved to cruisers, yet this book still holds great tips

Highly recommend to anybody before hitting the track.

5.0 out of 5 stars If I could only buy one riding book.... July 16 2006
Format:Paperback
This is a great book. It's clear and concise. As a bonus it probably contains the best photograhy I've ever seen in an instruction book of any kind.

Perhaps if you've raced a few years or spent a few hundred hours on the track you might find this book a little thin. Of course you would probably find most instructional books a bit thin.

For the rest of us this book is the best of it's class in my opinion. If you can do everything this book so clearly describes then you ARE a good rider. Fast. Safe. Smooth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book April 24 2004
Format:Paperback
I purchased my first motorcycle about two years ago and since then I have spent a lot of time trying to become a safe and fast rider. Having said that, I wish I would have bought this book a year ago; I would be so much further along. I've been riding one time since reading this book and the difference in my riding is astounding. Its amazing what a few adjustments can make. I highly recommend this book for people new to the world of motorcycleing. It can not only teach you the skills necessary to preserve your life, it will make your rides a great deal more fulfilling. Thank you Nick Ienatsch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading, great advice Sept. 24 2003
Format:Paperback
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 Best Book on Sport Riding Ever July 16 2003
Format:Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality Printing and Great Pictures June 28 2003
Format:Paperback
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.
