Developed with the input of police motorcycle trainers in the U.K., this book is a very well-done, matter-of-fact affair with descriptive graphics and refreshingly dispassionate language regarding the efficient and safe operation of our two-wheeled conveyances. Not much ‘ricky-racer’ idiocy here, but instead lots of experience-based information on riding in all conditions and weathers, traffic and road surface issues, and the elements of motorcycle control. Also, some very interesting stuff that may get you to think about your mental attitude and how it affects your approach to riding. One of the very best of these kind of books. Recommended. Way to go, coppers. (Bear in mind this is from a country where they drive on the other side of the road, so some diagrams may seem weird). By The Police Foundation. Softbound, 6"×8.25", 178 pp., b/w/c illus.
