This was a disappointing DVD compared to the book. I expected illustrations of the techniques in the book so that you could see how to achieve a line through a corner, and the impact of throttle, countersteering, braking etc. Instead it spends most of its time talking generally about such things as needing to have a structured approach to riding and to draw little diagrams to plan out your corners. I will say now that I haven't finished it as I couldn't take it anymore - maybe the last section is brilliant? It waffles on, gives little useful information, and appears unrelated to the book which is technique focussed. Plus the acted sections are painfully goofy. I can't work out what this DVD is trying to get across or who it would help. It appears to be encouraging boneheads to actually think about their race ride - but at such length? The amount of time spent saying that you have to have a purpose (product) in corner, for example, is ridiculous. I'd return it if I could.

HASH(0x9a6602d0) out of 5 stars 1980s Training Nov. 2 2009
By Keith - Published on
Format: DVD
When this film was made in 1985 there was so little information about riding, everything it contains was new to most riders back then. So much more is known now on how to ride and there are many better ways to film them. What amazed me when I looked at it again recently was the things it shows that were never intended in the original script. Looking at the things I would change about it was really helpful in making the Twist, Vol II book into a more powerful rider communication. The new DVD is light years ahead for sure but I don't think it would have been as good without the understanding that was gained from the original. The first one is really corny, I have to laugh when I think about it. The only good thing is that all the points it covers still apply to riding. I have no regrets on making it and I'm always very happy when people write me and tell me that it helped them see more about riding. I don't love it but I still like it.

HASH(0x9a660348) out of 5 stars Good content but poorly produced March 15 2007
By Raymond Evangelista - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The information contained in the video is good. The info will be useful for new riders and people that are trying to focus more on how to corner.

The one thing I wasn't happy about was the lack of instruction on how to do things better. They do a great job of telling you what to do and what not to do, but don't spend time on telling you how to do it. In lots of situations they tell you to figure out what works best for you. I thought the focus of the video should have been on teaching us what Keith knew and what he would do.

As for the quality of the video it was poor. The video was shoot in the 80s and the production of the video is poor by today's standards. To say it needs updating is an understatement.

All that being said you will learn how to be a better rider if you watch this video.

HASH(0x9a660600) out of 5 stars Just what I needed Dec 2 2011
By Justme - Published on
Format: DVD
I bought this for advice on how to ride with more confidence. It has certainly given me that with just the first viewing. It you are looking for a DVD with great acting and excellent production then get a life!!! (maybe get a copy of Easy Rider!!) This is about how to ride a bike properly and it does that with ease, with great tips on just about every aspect of riding. The only thing that I found was that it is directed more towards racing, picking lines and powering out of corners (great fun) which is not that easy when you are cruising down an unknown road!!! But all in all I have found it extremely helpful and my riding confidence and skills have increased massively. I also bought the book and it makes a great companion to reference back to certain points.
For riding tips I give it 4 stars

This product is usefull for beginners, however, the same concepts IMO can be learned from reading the book, a Twist of the wrist. I sat through and watched the DVD for the full length, I am not sure if i picked up anything by watching a graphic version of the book, which is basically what this is.

HASH(0x9a6603e4) out of 5 stars Time to update... Aug. 31 2007
By zeitgeist170 - Published on
Format: DVD
I love the series of books but this DVD falls down. The material and footage is dated. The shots do not nearly go far enough to take advantage of really letting us see what is being discussed. When this was shot that was probably due to equipment limitations. It is really, realllly time to update this with much more extended and closer footage. This medium could be the icing on the cake for the series but it's really more the box you throw away to get to the books...
