i bought the other modern motorcycle technology, it is a great book and much pricier.

That one's good if you're interested in becoming skilled in motorcycle service repair and maintenance.

It's part of a set for a training course. The other part is the "Student Skill Guide"

The book I recommended is more for someone who just wants to know how the various parts of motorcycles work.

Want to improve your riding skills??

Little back story. I just started riding this summer after riding atvs and snowmobiles in the past. I took the Basic Rider Course through MSF early summer and bought a R3 a few weeks later. Wanting to improve my skills, I started searching out reading materials and found the following two books on Amazon:

A Twist of the Wrist II by Keith Code ($18 on Amazon)
Total Control, Second Edition by Lee Parks ($19 on Amazon)

I've heard of Keith Code in the past and there is goofy movie on YouTube that explains most of the concepts in his book. Worth a watch: http://youtu.be/KVWLIfChUwg and this article is a good read on his California Superbike School: http://gearpatrol.com/2015/06/25/california-superbike-school/

The second edition of Total Control came out this this year and the book is amazing. Super up to date, very detailed but not too technical, tons of color pictures, drills, tips.... It has everything! I highly recommend picking up a copy.

I'm all about self improvement and with being a new to the motorcycle world, I would like to keep riding for many years to come. Stay safe out there everyone.

... and renamed.

Fang is doing a fantastic job of data-mining for the forum. If there's a problem he can PM me and we'll step out back and work it out.

And Loll - your double post got deleted - so there!!!

Well, since over 45% of the Forum members who responded to the "Motorcycle Experience" Poll checked the "New To Riding" box, that seems like a great choice for a sub-forum.

No issues here. No need to step out back. It's ALL good.

There is an editted version of the TOTW video with all the cheesy acting deleted. So just the lessons in the video.
