If you like canyon carving, the twisties, and racing at the track, this book is for you. This book will prepare your mind, body, and bike for high performance riding. The book also contains lots of tips for practical street riding. Perhaps a little too technical for some (e.g suspension set up), you get what you need to understand the sport of motorcycling for track and street. The chapters on fear, vision, line selection and two - up were my favorite. Worth the money.

If you have read Twist Of The Wrist II then you won't get much out of this book. If you haven't read Twist Of The Wrist II then I suggest you read that and forget this book. I was hoping this would cover more ground but I found it very simplistic and not very detailed. If you really want to read this book then just borrow it from a library because it's not something I would keep on my shelf and refer back to.

This is a good book to read and understand if you have any interest in becoming a better rider. Whether you strive to push yourself harder and lean further or you just want to feel safer through understanding, you'll find answers here. This is worth a scan or read every season just to refresh.

This book has two sections that are excellent , the slow speed turns and proper high speed cornering. You will pay hundred's at the track to learn what is taught in this book. A must read before you go to the track for the first time. Well done. Thankyou :) :)

good technical book not to arid to understand. More usefull for sport bike rider than cruiser rider. The book is a bit old, (2003) pictures should be revised. The author knows what he is talking about. You will learn tricks to be a better rider reading this book. worth the price paid ! Janus !

I should have guessed from the title of the book and the images on the cover, but this book was a little more biased 'race bike' technique and bike setup for the track rather than techniques that are useful to riders who never venture to the track. From the books summary and other reader reviews I thought that the techniques shown would be equally applicable to the street and and would assist rider safety for day to day riding.... but on reading it I was wrong.

There are sections of the book that cover street riding but for me at least the bias toward 'racing techniques' is not what I was really looking for. A book teaching advanced riding techniques it is not but if your a racer who wants to try out racing techniques on the track and also apply these to the street then this maybe the book for you. For me alas it is not what I was expecting.

This is certainly a book that does what it's says on the cover... racing street riding techniques, but is certainly not a source for advanced safety riding techniques for the street.

I read this book 2 years ago,
I was prepping for a few track days and found it very helpful, some interesting hints and advices, although mostly for modern bikes.
It is a great read, and enjoyable and will always give you a surprise (like speed shifting :)).
