Most of us on this side of the country have put our motorcycles away for the winter season. Since we are not able to physically work on our riding skills, it is a great idea to read about them and start thinking about improving them through knowledge, and eventually through physical practice. I have some favorite books I would encourage you to read while you wait for the big thaw.
My ultimate favorite is Sport Riding Techniques, this book is an easy read and I happen to be a product of and huge fan of the teachings of one of the authors Nick Ienatsch. The content applies to all types of riding, not just sport bikes.
Sport Riding Techniques: How To Develop Real World Skills for Speed, Safety, and Confidence on the Street and Track
by Nick Ienatsch and Kenny Roberts
There is a lot to be gained from reading another one of my favorites by David L. Hough. David is widely respected in the motorcycle training community and has been a columnist for Motorcycle Consumer News for many many years.
Proficient Motorcycling: The Ultimate Guide To Riding Well
by David L. Hough
Another good book to get you in the mind set of riding well comes from The Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Guide to Motorcycling
Excellence: Skills, Knowledge, and Strategies for Riding Right
by The Motorcycle Safety Foundation
I have really enjoyed reading the short stories by Peter Egan over the years. Recently, I was gifted with his book Leanings. Peter is a long time contributor to Cycle World Magazine.

All of these books can be found on Amazon and most of them have a Kindle version too. Happy readings!
