"Proficient Motorcycling" is the most popular motorcycle riding skills book ever.
This is the one book that every motorcyclist should own.
It's based on the "Proficient Motorcycling" columns that Mr. Hough has written for many years for Motorcycle Consumer News and other periodicals.
Those writings explain all aspects of motorcycling that involve safe and proficient riding.
Reading this book is like having a highly experienced motorcycle expert giving you the benefit of a lifetime of experience on the subject.
It contains many chapters with illustrations that explain just about everything you should know about riding safe and well. It pays to read this book before every riding season and to refer to it often.
Chapters include: Risk; Motorcycle Dynamics; Urban Traffic Survival; Booby Traps; Special Situations; and Sharing the Ride. It is written in an easy-to-read style that helps to convey a wealth of information to any rider. Highly recommended!
