Product Description

Review

I find it to be quite thorough and easy to understand. I particularly like the “building block” presentation and how it emphasizes laying a good foundation of the skills necessary to effectively ride a large motorcycle. The practice exercises are clearly well thought out, easy to understand, and simple to set up for just about anyone. I definitely will be recommending it to my students and friends who already ride big bikes and especially to those who are taking on one of the “heavyweights” for the first time.” – Marshall W. Munce, Owner Southwest Motorcycle Training (San Antonio, Texas)

From the Back Cover

Nothing beats the comfort of a big touring or cruising motorcycle, but the cost for that comfort is increased weight, and with increased weight comes increased challenges for a rider. A heavyweight motorcycle starts, stops, and turns differently than a lighter bike, especially when it is loaded down with a week’s worth of gear in the panniers and a passenger on the pillion. Without proper training and riding skills, that comfortable big bike can lead to catastrophe. Covering topics such as bike setup, low-speed maneuvers, emergency braking, and advanced cornering techniques, with practical riding drills for each section, Maximum Control: Mastering your Dresser, Tourer, Cruiser and Other Heavyweight Bike teaches you the skills needed to take charge of your heavyweight motorcycle.

Format: Paperback
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.

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...

Strongly recommend.

Being a classic fit for "Hells Accountants" & starting out on a big bike, I found this book pleasantly helpful. Certainly if you're a relatively new rider and find your big bike a bit intimidating, this book will be reassuring and informative.
