    I just finished "Sport Riding Techniques" was interesting, echoed a lot of what
    I learned riding long ago, but was good to reaquaint myself with the subject.

    Anybody have any suggestions on other good books to read?

    ....that's right....3 posts. :rofl:

    Yeah, I've heard that #1 concentrates more on track riding, Twist2 is more for street riding techniques.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I could only find the first 'Twist of the Wrist'....first 30 or so pages that I've read are
    interesting, and despite a bias towards the track, it has a lot of useful information so
    far (noticing pavement types, getting the most out of camber changes....)

    Thanks again.

    I would highly suggest at least the first proficient motorcycling book at least.
