Sport Riding Techniques: How To Develop Real World Skills for Speed, Safety, and Confidence on the Street and Track

Although I have a sport bike, I don’t consider myself a sport bike rider. I ride for fun, and I don’t push the limits of my riding ability or the capabilities of my motorcycle. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to be the best motorcycle rider I can be.

I’ve also been riding a motorcycle for a long time, but don’t consider myself an expert at all aspects of motorcycle riding. However, I am a firm believer in continuing education. The particular education I’m talking about today, is a book I read on Sport Riding Techniques. Before you think, “I’m not into track riding, or even going as fast as possible through mountain roads,” read on for a minute. The book “Sport Riding Techniques: How To Develop Real World Skills for Speed, Safety, and Confidence on the Street and Track” by Nick Ienatsch may be worth adding to your reading collection.

Yes, the book has a sport bike emphasis. But, it covers techniques for both street riding and track riding. Even more important, the track riding techniques are very good to know, even if you never see a track. If you’ve taken the Motorcycle Safety Foundation rider class, you were taught the basics of riding. This book will take you much deeper into the how’s and why’s of acceleration (especially traction), steering, braking, and even urban survival techniques. It explains good riding technique, and helps you understand why the technique is important, and why it works. It also gives lessons to practice so you can learn the techniques. The book is full of pictures and graphics that make it easier to learn for visual learners like myself.

I think that anyone wanting to learn a little more about the physics and mechanics of riding (I don’t mean fixing the motorcycle) should read this book. Understanding how and why a motorcycle behaves the way it does, and how you can influence its behavior in a positive way, can dramatically improve your riding. It can also improve your confidence, since you better understand how the motorcycle will respond to your commands and controls.
