Twist of the Wrist 1 and 2 were recommended to me, along with Proficient Motorcycling, as guides to help beginners understand the mechanisms of riding motorcycles. I found Twist of the Wrist 1 was more involved with racing on a road course than dealing with daily riding/traffic. However, physics are physics and many of the tips and strategies do apply in normal riding!
I have a collection of books on improving racing strategies in cars, and I found many of the tips and strategies can apply in normal driving. It's just that most people choose to ignore this and believe in one philosophy or the other. Keith Code's philosophy to riding, at least in the scope of this book, is found in racing. He does include some tips on basic concepts such as using the front brakes, rev-matching your downshifts, and counter-steering. Overall, Twist of the Wrist 1 isn't as comprehensive or as solid for a beginner as Proficient Motorcycling by David Hough. That said, Twist of the Wrist is worth buying to read and to use as a reference in the future.
Code enjoys using the $10 attention span tool, which makes sense as much as it is annoying to see pop up every other paragraph. I feel that it would be better if Twist of the Wrist 1 and 2 were combined, revised, and updated because Twist of the Wrist 2 filled in a lot of the gaps left in the first, and includes more useful tips and the most common survival reactions (SR's).
Overall: 4/5 stars, not as mandatory as Proficient Motorcycling, but still a good read. Twist of the Wrist 2 is what I'd recommend if you had to choose between TOTW 1 and 2.
What I learned, never thought about before; it follows, when you brake [dive] the front suspension under rider control for turning; as a result, it makes the cycle easier to turn because you have changed the 'rake' and 'trail' of the front wheel. It all makes sense and now requires I must practice turning more during street riding to take advantage of this new knowledge.
Good book for the street cycle rider.
Seeing A Twist of the Wrist available for Kindle prompted me to buy it and read it again, and I'm so glad I did. Reading it again now, with so much more riding experience, I found a ton of things that I had glossed over the first time that now mean SO MUCH more to me!
Plus, the Kindle edition of the book has been updated and I found it easier to read and more current than the original book. Can't wait for better weather so I can go ride and work on my skills again. This is a must-read for anyone from casual street riders to those who race or aspire to do so.
