A Twist Of the Wrist (Volumes I & II)

Anybody read either of these. I went through volume one, and it was pretty good. A lot of the info seemed to be more "mental". I just picked up volume II and it seems more technical. Never knew throttle control affected the suspension so much. Both books are probably a good read for aspiring racers and track day addicts.

Any opinions about Keith Codes school? www.superbikeschool.com

Keith Code's methods I have heard can be very weird. a lot of metal stuff you are supposed to think about while riding-I don't think much other than brakemarkers, apexes, etc. The rest as to how long you trail the brakes and throttle pickup is something you practice in my opinion and will think about 3-4 of those items at a time but really you practice.

Keith Code's school also teaches the no countersteering stuff if I am correct. Thats just weird.

Yes sir! Start out with the basic class @ and LSTd event. Then you can take the Mike Sanchez class with RideSmart. Then you can move up to the Ty Howard class with RideSmart. I personally have not tried the Longhorn Mike Sanchez or Haner classes yet but, I imagine they will get you moving to. Ty Howad also offers personal classes.

i picked up volume 1 a few weeks ago...its awesome. i'll probably get volume 2 pretty soon, and then start looking for the dvd.

its like some dude in Faster said...90% of riding technique is between the ears.

some of the stuff in the book i was allready doing, like RP's, but the book got me thinking in new ways, and from totally different angles...

anyone who likes to hug a turn should pick up a copy!
