5.0 out of 5 stars
excellent book, ride faster smoother safer, Aug 11 1998
This book will teach you how to ride like Doohan instead of riding like a squid (eg fast and smooth instead of point and shoot).
"A twist of the wrist 2" will teach you how to ride faster, smoother, safer, it could save your life and will teach you more about motorcycle riding technique than you thought you could ever know. This guy (Keith Code) taught Doug Chandler how to go faster. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. This volume teaches you cornering technique that applies to any situation. The main chapter headings are "throttle control", "rider input", "steering", "vision", "braking", "traction" and "racing".
You will learn that smoothness equals speed and safety. Using the techniques taught by Keith you will find even a bike like my Yamaha Virago 1100 is a pretty quick bike through corners as long as you set up a smooth entry into the corner, then power through and blast o! ut the other side. I've blown away squids on GSXR750s and 1100s using this riding style, mainly because I can now carry a higher cornering speed.
Keith teaches you that braking hard into a corner just upsets the suspension and maked the bike pogo all th way through. Get your braking done before the corner and the suspension is set up to provide traction all the way through the corner.
