4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy going but worth it 17 April 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book explains why a motorcycle does what it does, and the proper calculations and physics for what we feel when we ride.

It isn't a recreational read, and doesn't have big glossy pictures of MotoGP riders, but it is big on real facts. And if you understand 10% of this then you will be a better rider for it. For an example look at material on centre of gravity - I'm still getting my head around it, but the little I do understand so far explains why the stuff I learned motocrossing actually works.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any bike mechanic! 13 Oct. 2014
This book isn't for the beginner. It's a very detailed mathematically driven book which in its brilliance is a font of information and certainly opened my eyes up to new trains of thought. Having said that I am a beginner in this field and I was able to keep up with the author and not get lost along the way. It's riddled with mathematical formulas which represent such things as, Speed, Gravity, height and weight. It's not a book to sit by the fire and read with a cup of tea. Ideally you should take notes and highlight areas of interest or importance. If you intend to delve into the world of Moto GP racing then this book is a must have. If you're looking at building bikes then I'd still buy it and pick up as much information as you can from it. Not all will be relevant to the job at hand, but you will be a better designer and builder for reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Chassis tuners Bibles 8 May 2010
Written by the late great John Robinson when he was tech editor for "performance Bike" (a british bike mag) This as someone else wrote full of maths & physics by no means aleisurely readBUT once read it will stir you to look at your bike how you ride it and why it rides as it does.

This book coupled with Chassis design by Tony Foale will give you real insight into why MotoGP bikes are so complex an animal. Maybe if you have ashed and a welder drive you to design your own bike chassis. Having been there done that it is a very satisfying occupation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Motorcycle chasis tuning 13 Mar. 2012
A superb in depth book that will answer all your questions about how a motorcycle chasis works.Describes the physics involved in making a motorcycle go, stop and go round corners.Pictures and technology in the book are a bit dated(late 80's early 90's) but the physics still apply.
