Havago , Apr 4, I find my power weakens significantly at the border of Vic. State border lines are my kryptonite! Aug 3, Messages: I've watched the Twist of the Wrist vid and I'm curious, what do you practice first?
Do you pick one randomly at a time or do you follow the order they explained them in? Because After watching it I took away that for me it would make a quick and significant improvment if I learn how to downshift correctly though it was the last thing they showed. Maybe I should be trying to practise as much as possible at once?
Though I hardly believe I could manage that much focus while riding in traffic. Wishes he had money to go to the track Looking at the other lessions aside from downshifting they seem to require the knowledge you learn from the preceding lession.

THE RIDERS AIRBAG is the distance you keep from other vehicles on the road, never rush your ride, and keep as much distance as you can from cars, bikes, busses, trams, if you do this you will relax more, enjoy your riding more, live longer and give yourself the time to run through other things in your mind. Always be aware of your surroundings, use mirrors, head checks, focus in the distance, you will still see what is in front of you but not ONLY what is in front of you.
When buying helmets try to get one which gives you the most peripheral vision and don't wear sunglasses that the frame blocks out your side views bikers sunglasses aren't meant to make you look tough they are curved to increase the amount of peripheral vision, protect the eyes and should be polarized.
I ride with my visor up except in hail, heavy rain, snow, following gravel trucks and when there are lots of big bugs around. During the day I always wear the same sunnies as worn by our troops in Afghanistan Shrapnel proof and at night clear frame-less safety glasses and I have never ever worn tinted visors which are illegal at night.

A Twist of the Wrist 1 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.
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. 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.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I think Keith Code does a great job explaining within 'A Twist of the Wrist' and 'A Twist of the Wrist II' related to cycle suspension and the smooth cycle turning performance -- for example, ability for the rider to control weight loading of front and rear wheel contact patch while cornering makes a difference for road traction, ability to steer the cycle in a new direction, and how to transition from throttle to brakes and back to cracking the throttle to get it done smoothly.
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. One person found this helpful. I was really happy to find this book available for Kindle.
I read it years ago and it made a huge difference in my riding. Then I took Keith's class, then read A Twist of the Wrist II, and with all that I went from a shaky street rider to a confident and proficient trackday rider and racer. 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.
I've got both of his books and have seen the movies. This guy really knows what he's talking about, but the writing, to me, is almost another language. Over the years I've tried reading his books several times but really have trouble. I wish he'd get a writer to redo them because I can tell enough to know that he really knows his stuff.
This book is probably one of the standards in professional motorcycle racing. It is intended for the track racing rider who wants to better understand the track and how to master it. It is not intended for the rider who wants to improve his road skills as most references are solely related to understanding the track and how to use continuous improvement strategies to increase your speed and lower track times.
It is a very effective disciplined process that explains a variety of track geography, cambers and surfaces and how those will affect the mechanics and approach to every corner and elevation. If you are trying to improve your track racing skills or are considering going to a track day for motorcycling for the first time, there's a lot of good advice and illustrations for you to absorb here.
Lots of years of experience written in this book. Even though I don't run track, it has lots of info that helps on curvy country roads Keith Code has a unique approach to instruction, which is reflected in this book and also its sequel, A Twist of the Wrist 2. Rather than providing a recipe for motorcycling success, Keith presents his experiences and provides them as food for the reader's thought.
He frequently asks the reader to answer questions regarding the most recently covered topic and its applicability to the reader's riding. This style can be a little frustrating if you're looking for a highly technical treatise on high-performance motorcycle riding, but it does make the material considerably more accessible. The book itself covers many nuances of motorcycle riding particularly on the race track, but with applicability to the street as well , ranging from topics such as cornering to braking to vision and body position.
I view this book as providing a nifty bag of tricks for riders who want to up their performance on the track or on the street. If you're going to buy just one of Keith Code's books, I'd recommend buying the sequel A Twist of the Wrist 2 because it covers some of the same ground and is updated to more modern riding styles.
