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.

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.

When a rider and writer of Nick Ienatsch's stature puts all his wisdom, knowledge and experience into a book, it's time to sit up and listen carefully, especially these days when 100-HP 600s and 140-HP 1,000s are ripping 10-second quarter miles at 140+ (G-SXR 1000 tests) and are available to anyone with $ whether or not they have a clue.
Nick is among the very best writers about motorcycling, ever, up there with Don Canet and Kevin Cameron (no point in ranking them subjectively, because all three are excellent). He is also a champion racer, primarily on 250s. Having ridden on the road with him, I attest to his smooth, skilled way of proceeding, and his concern for safety.
This book should be required reading for every rider who puts a wheel on road or track. Once read, it should be memorized and used as the core belief set that will make a rider quicker and safer, and every ride more enjoyable, including anyone else who is along for the pleasure of it. No one should dare suggest that he or she is 'above it,' knows better and 'doesn't need' the lessons Ienatsch teaches. We all do. This book will, among other things, keep a rider alive to ride again and enjoy one of the most interesting and pleasurable ways to get down the road devised by Man.
Don't argue with me. Get it.
PS One of life's ironies is that Ienatsch, one of the best writers on motorcycling who ever puts finger to keyboard, doesn't have a regular gig and is only read intermittently in CYCLE WORLD. Let's hope that changes, soon.

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.

It starts off with the basics even a rookie rider would know but then it grows into more detail with every chapter. I bought it because I liked Nick's article "The Pace." For the novice rider, you'll know most of the content but I'm sure there are some things you'll learn from it. The way he describes limits on cornering and braking with the tire point system is a nice fresh approach. It will be a great book for someone who is new to Sport Bikes. It's also good for those who have been riding because you can never stop learning or looking for ways to improve on your riding. It's worth the money in my opinion.

I bought this book based on a review in a sportbike magazine. When I got the book in the mail, I was really impressed with the layout and overall quality of the book. Nice, glossy pages with large pictures of modern sportbikes and easy to read text and captions. However, once I started reading it I noticed that the tips and techniques, while valuable, are really aimed at newer, less experience riders. Subjects are not discussed in the detail I was hoping for and issues like basic suspension set-up or advice on performance modification were not covered at all.
I guess I was hoping for a "Twist of the Wrist 2" meets "Total Control..." meets "Sportbike Performance Handbook" type of book. Not even close. Still, I believe this is a very high quality piece of literature that can be enjoyed by both entry level and experienced riders alike.

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.

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.
