   He seemed comfortable around the chaos and had some program on riding
I met Lee for the first time in 2008 at the Indy race. He seemed comfortable around the chaos and had some riding program. This should be the industry standard for safety training in the USA. Never before has an author gone to so much trouble with riding, racing and reviewing material, then boiling it down to digestible chapters for your enjoyment. Many of the chapters have been expanded, improved and refined to provide even more information on my favorite subject ridings in control.
   A newer version worse than the previous one
I finished reading this new version of the book and compared it to the previous version, which i also own. The previous edition contains LESS information, while the new edition is. The two versions are approximately the same, but the largest difference is that the new version removes all the diagrams that teach practice. I have also taken the Advance Riding Clinic full course and these diagrams are the basis of the course. Once again, i am baffled as to why the new version of this book omits the most important features, which are the most helpful in practicing the teachings of the book.
   Even better than the first edition
Book is great! Don 't listen to the review that says it is worse than the first edition! I bought both and regret it because of this. Both read in parallel and the second edition is much better, more information and better illustrated.
   What can I say it is a bible for riders
Gives you through knowledge about motorcycle physics, how to drive, how to be a better rider. I know there are lots of good YouTube channels explaining a whole bunch of motorcycle stuff so that if you want to ride your limit or mount your bike, but this goes beyond. If you want to be great at what you love, get this book ).
   Awesome book, must have for any rider
This should be the first book that anyone buys after buying a motorcycle. I recommend riding really solid foundations and in-depth equipment book that I definitely recommend. I have 3 years of road riding under my belt and am getting a ton out of it on braking, throttle, traction, etc. I would also buy Sport Riding Techniques if you're looking for another book and a different perspective ; they're both great and should be must-reads. These, together with some youtube vids and an intermediate class or two, should be considered a mandatory first year curriculum for new riders. Candidly, I should have read this and others shortly after my first class and would not have nearly the amount of close calls. Can not recommend continued learning and this book as part of this regiment enough.
   Best motorcycling book I have read
This is the best : It has some of the good looks out for cars doing silly stuff'chapters with good insights, but the heart of the book is on how to handle your motorcycle. I would recommend this book highly ''.
   Must read for all motorcycle riders
This book and the techniques it teaches go far beyond the sport riding. I have taken 3 of Lee Parks Total Control courses and my skills have dramatically improved in conjunction with this book. Any motorcycle rider on any motorcycle can benefit from the lessons contained in this book. Lee Parks does a good job of bringing high-performance riding techniques and applying them to real life to improve your skills and safety.
This is a must read for all motorcycle riders and especially for those who want to live again and again.
   Great book
Great book with a lot of useful information and contains many tips on how to know if you ride a bike.
   Great book for anyone riding or thinking about riding a motorcycle
Excellent explanations and the basis for training methods and bike set-up to make you the best rider you can be. Destroys long held beliefs and old teachings that were passed as the proper riding method. Makes you a better rider if you follow the instructions, depending on what you want to achieve.
