First Sentence
Take a look at the performance figures of any modern street bike, most of which have sub-three-second zero-to-sixty times that beat the most potent supercars, and it's obvious that riding skill is being far outpaced by motorcycle technology. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of its kind?! 6 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Aimed at people who wish to have fast (but safe) road riding fun. Loads of great information, ideas, 'drills' to practise/improve your day to day sportsbike riding.
Primary focus is on road riding, but there are many parallels to track/racing techniques, and a useful section about trackdays, including preparation etc.
Illustrations and graphics are up to date (Ducati 999,Rossi/RC411V, R1's ... etc) but as well as being very "aesthetically pleasing" they actually serve their purpose!
Nick's ideas seem to be a collection of the best bits from all the riding and research he has done as a successful racer in the US, and a long time biking journalist. Nick presents his ideas to you in a clear and interesting book ... for comparison, I have read all of Keith Code's dull, confusing and patronising writings ("Twist of the Wrist ..."), and would advise you to buy this book before considering any of Code's!
Enjoy ...
PS For more about Nick's ideas and style of writing, search the web under the author's name for articles he wrote called 'The Pace'.

Format:Paperback
Having read a number of books in the quest for decent instruction on how to ride a motorbike and use the controls skillfully (including Roadcraft and Twist of the Wrist) this was by far the best. It gave full detail on not only how to enter and steer into bends but also how to exit them. Concise detail on braking and how to use the throttle in all situations was excellent. Above all, the book could be read in nice bite-sized chunks without the need to work one's way through any padding out of the text. I bought it to improve my road riding but I am sure track riders will find it equally as good. All the instruction and advice is appropriate for any type of motorcycle or style of rider.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slower is FASTER 22 May 2008
Format:Paperback
I already knew about 90% of what is written in this book, but it was the 10% I didnt know that makes the difference. the information in the book also made me realise what a terrible rider I had become, bad habbits creep in it takes you back to the basics of riding.

After reading this book once, my exit speed on a certain corner rose from 50+ MPH to 60+MPH even tho I felt I was going slower the speedo told the truth.

If you want to know where you are going wrong read it, its not a technical book and its written in pain English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best rider training book I have read to date 18 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book shortly after reading the police rider training. It is the perfect next step. It takes many of the points in the police rider training and advances on them. It also has a detailed track racing section.

For a start it is a very easy read with large print and inspiring photographs. The book is as much about riding fast as riding safely and is brim full of brilliant training suggestions and riding methods. It is so full of information that I am reading it again a few pages at a time and practicing the contents on each next ride.

A key discipline is his 100 points traction theory, which becomes the basis for many actions like trail braking,leaning and steering, raising skills to a very high level. You will end up a much safer rider after reading this book, where ever you choose to ride, track or public roads. If you put the lessons into practice, I am sure you will be faster, smoother and better rider.

Hope this review helps you, and that you enjoy the book as much as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Happy 26 July 2009
By R1Racer
Format:Paperback
I was very pleased with the item I received as it was more than I expected. Alot of details that outline the course of improving your sport riding skills on the motorcycle on track and street riding. Also identifies the mistakes that you may be making on the bike. The practical exercises at the end of each chapter are a real bonus and have improved my street riding confidently and in a more safer manner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get more out of your sport riding. 18 Oct 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Had read some of the reviews and purchased a number of years ago.
Only now getting around to this review.
Well written and offers excellent advice, and explained in a way most of us will get something useful out of the pages.

Go out and practice and in particular on the track where you can see the part or whole seconds come off the clock.
