Motorcycles weren't designed by opinions or good advice and riding them is the same. Keith Code's A Twist of the Wrist II describes with precision the essential riding techniques that all riders need to understand. Code lays out the seven knee jerk 'Survival Reactions' which every rider has experienced and clearly describes how they are, in every case, contrary to good technique. It is the first book to describe these and goes on to define, in step-by-step detail, the proper technical skills necessary to overcome them. Having good technical riding skills allows riders to conquer their fears and overcome their barriers to cornering. The book contains twenty-six chapters of exact procedures which address: Rider input, Steering, Precision Visual Skills, Braking, Body Position, Throttle Control, Lines, the different types of Traction and much more. A Twist of the Wrist II is based on Code's vast experience: acknowledged worldwide, Keith has trained and coached more riders and more champions than anyone else in the history of the sport. His California Superbike Schools have run in seventeen countries at one hundred and eleven tracks and are the number one school in all of them. A world wide best-seller since its publication and translated into seven languages, this go-to book for all motorcyclists from weekend riders to racers is now available in eBook format for your convenience.

From the publishers of Motorcycle Consumer News, Shifting Gears at 50 is a one-of-a-kind motorcycling manual for returning and late-entry riders, essentially anyone 40 years old and up who’s looking to hit the road on two wheels. Author Philip Buonpastore, a motorcycle journalist and retired US Air Force photographer, helps readers gear up to get back on a motorcycle (or get on one for the first time). In Part 1, “Becoming a Motorcyclist,” Buonpastore discusses the basics of buying the right bike, gear, and equipment and getting the bike up to speed. The book continues with a good overview of learning to ride, the importance of taking a road course, venturing out on the first ride, and extending rides to long-distance jaunts. Throughout Part 1 are sidebars by riding- safety instructor and expert Walt Fulton, offering sound advice on safety precautions and execution for every leg of the new and returning rider’s journey. The author emphasizes what older riders should be aware of and which factors can affect their rides. Adding lots of great firsthand advice are humorous and helpful stories collected by the author and related by returning riders at various ages, from their late 30s to 60s. In Part 2, Buonpastore shares five of his favorite travelogues covering his long-distance tours around the US, from the American South to the west coasts. This section is illustrated by over 100 of the author’s breathtaking photographs of the various locations he toured on his bike. The foreword to the book is provided by best-selling motorcycle author David Hough (author of I-5 Press’s Proficient Motorcycling and Mastering the Ride). Hough writes, “If you’re getting into today’s motorcycling at an age your doctor would describe as ‘middle aged’ or ‘senior,’ do you yourself a clever favor and read Phil’s book.”
