About this ebook

Written by an advanced motorcycle instructor with thirty-five years of daily riding under his belt, Motorcycle Mastery is written for riders who would like to take their riding to the next level. 


It is a commonly-held belief that riding well begins and ends with control of your machine. The author contends that mere control of your machine—while a necessary skill—is a small part of what it takes to be a competent, well-rounded, and, most importantly, a safe rider. Far more important are the skills necessary for truly being the master of our environment; for negotiating our way through the hazards we face every day out on the road in a safe, competent and masterly efficient manner. 


It is these skills that are presented in Motorcycle Mastery. Beginning with some basic control skills to lay the foundation, the author then takes us through more and more advanced techniques not taught in common motorcycle license courses with a view to really honing our skill level, and making us the very best riders we can be.
