Keith Code books

I was wondering if somebody here has any of Keith Code's books and if I can borrow them. I was looking at them at Barnes&Nobles but dont feel like spending 25bucks on each book.

Also, I dont know if anybody posts there, but the forum on his site has some pretty good stuff on cornering, some articles by him and lotsa discussions.

http://www.keithcode.com/

click on 'cornering forum' on left side.

nice link. I've heard Twist of the Wrist 2 is the one to get for track riding...judging by what I've read over lunch, it might be worth the investment.

I didn't like those books... hard to read, Code has some weird theories and just in general, it's hard to read a book, then go apply those to the track. I prefer the one on one/face to face methods.

I prefer the face to face method myself... but I think that little theory will always be helpful. Rest, I dont know about his weird theories yet, I have just started reading some of his articles on his site and they have made perfect sense..till now. Lets c what weird stuff I come across as I go on.

Only problem is that thier pc will say checked out or in stock and they won't have them in their place. (mean they got jacked)

than they have the out dated from when apes were around and ford invented motor cars.

I mainly looked at the pics and read things here and there.
