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!
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'.
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.
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.
This is a great book for somebody who wants to improve his/her riding in every aspect and become a better rider, both for fun and safety. The text is plain and easily understandable even from people who English are not their mother language.
The structure is clear, with basic and advanced riding techniques and examples, mainly for the road user but with tips for the track as well.
This is not a story book. It is like a riding manual. You can even read its section separately (but it is much easier if you first read it once from start to end). You read it, you practise, you revise, you read again. It is a lot of knowledge packed there and somebody needs to read it again and again in order to 'unlock' all of it.
Overall one of the best book I have read regarding riding properly a motorcycle
