There is much more to the book though; it’s basically a super-experienced motorcyclist providing his pearls of wisdom. I also learned more about why counter-steering does what it does, and can explain it to other riders better. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

It offers cautionary anecdotes to underscore the importance of riding with caution and awareness. The writing style was conversational and above average quality. Great hpugh that make reader more proficietn of how motorcycle works in lot of different situations. We’re not saying it is all plain sailing. The book offers the kind of first-hand experience that can literally save riders’ lives, as illustrated in the mtorcycling “Booby Traps” and “Special Situations,” which offer evasive tactics and advice to avoid and handle everything from slick surfaces, curbs, and construction plates to ferocious dogs, hazardous wildlife, and difficult weather conditions.
Hough, a revered motorcycle author, columnist, and riding-safety consultant, lays out a clear course for all riders who want to sharpen their handling skills and improve their rides.
One of the funniest things to me is that there’s actually a section explaining to you how to outsmart a dog that is trying to attack you while you’re riding your bike. If that’s what you want, you’ll find it here.
