Good reading for new (and old) riders

Yes, repost.

Got to thinking about it while reading the latest crash threads and new rider posts....

I went back thru the old threads and couldn't find any active links.

Sport Riding Techniques, Nick Ienatsch ... this is aimed at street riding and is easy to read, like a magazine article:


Bunch of good articles for riding and suspension setup;

http://<font face="Verdana">http://w...ex.html</font>

I haven't found a good link for Twist of the Wrist 1 and 2, but I can email PDF copies if you shoot me a PM with your email addy. These are track oriented books but awesome reading for anyone wanting to ride track or street better.

And remember the basics:

countersteer
look where you want to go
kiss the inside mirror
open your hips into the turn
use your core for support, not your arms
relax and breath

Looks like I spoke too soon. None of my email accounts will allow the book to email. May have to wait until I get back home.

Both of mine are 12 mb; too large for my email. I tried uploading to my webpage but it's apparently having issues as well.

shheeeeeyite!
