Twist of the Wrist

so I've bought the book on the kindle and have started reading it, at the moment trying to get my head about why he wants me to spend dollars?and which way the Camber goes:blink:

all very confusing.

So my question is, has anyone else read it?

and if so did it improve your riding?

considering buying it. I've read and applied motorcycle roadcraft and read the IAM's text book but those are both road based. Unless you're a track fiend I'd read one of them (ideally the former, the latter is similar with pretty pictures) first and that'll give you a good solid foundation to improve your riding before applying more racing orientated stuff.

I have also read the roadcraft and the IAM book, but I do also have a copy of the twist of the wrist dvd. I haven't read the book so I can't comment on that.

The dvd however, yes it is a bit cheesy at times but it is very informative and covers some very interesting points about riding motorcycles, such as the survival reactions, countersterring, throttle control etc etc.

I would recommend it to anyone, it possibly goes into the technical side of riding a motorcycle a bit more than the roadcraft and the IAM book.

hmm

Twist of the Wrist 2 is a great watch, I mean my mate used to lean off his bike like a twat, I had to make him watch it. Such a great guide for anyone to follow, it wont make you a pro, however it'll make you more aware of the stupid shit you do when riding.


Sadly the instructors for tests are shit, they cannot ride bikes themselves, so you never end up getting taught important things.

Twist II

Don't waste you time with the book, there is a dvd version which is soooo much better. If you seriously want to learn though forget twist of the wrist and go do the California Superbike School for real, its quite expensive but worth every penny!!! You will learn many skills you can not get from a book/dvd.... trust me I tried :)
