I ride a K1200LT which is frequently used in the book to illustrate various situations. It is more sports oriented than the Goldwing, but notheless a handfull, at slow speeds.
I found the book very helpful in describing the theory of keeping the motorcycle on its wheels and the riding drills proposed are excellent to actually practice the points raised in the theory...

This book is a must-read for anyone who rides a heavyweight bike, but the skills it teaches can be used on anything. Many of the drills are based on the training for motorcycle police, the true kings of heavy bike control.
Pat Hahn writes in a way that imparts the information of a textbook without the dryness that usually comes with that. It's like hearing stories and tips from an expert over pints, easy, friendly, and accessible.
I'm not even 160 pounds in full gear and I ride a 2300cc Rocket III, and using even the simplest tips from this book has improved virtually all aspects of my riding.
The five-star rating was no question. Buy this book and read it annually.
