If this book simply teaches you to analyze and improve your riding, it will have done it's job. So maybe the writing style isn't perfect - I'd rather read a handbook by a "writing rider" than a "riding writer". I personally got more out of "Volume II" (this one) than "Volume I", but since getting both costs less than a few tanks of gas, it's worth buying the pair. I had been riding daily fo 10 years when I picked up this book, but was new to sportbikes - it changed my world, for the better. As a side note, if you're a recovering addict you'll be inspired by Mr. Code.

Ignore all those other reviews that whine (whinge in the UK) about the writing style ... who cares ... just ignore the little *'s and skip the footnotes. This book is primarily written for racers, but there's lots of worthwhile info on riding technique for street riders. For new streebikers, "Sportbiking: The Real World" is a better introduction to proper technique, but I still learned something from this book. "Real World" filled-in gaps in my basic riding style, but Twist of the Wrist II helped make me safer (avoiding "survival responses") and much faster through the corners (pivoting on the outside peg) ... yeehaa!

This book will teach you how to ride like Doohan instead of riding like a squid (eg fast and smooth instead of point and shoot).
"A twist of the wrist 2" will teach you how to ride faster, smoother, safer, it could save your life and will teach you more about motorcycle riding technique than you thought you could ever know. This guy (Keith Code) taught Doug Chandler how to go faster. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. This volume teaches you cornering technique that applies to any situation. The main chapter headings are "throttle control", "rider input", "steering", "vision", "braking", "traction" and "racing".
You will learn that smoothness equals speed and safety. Using the techniques taught by Keith you will find even a bike like my Yamaha Virago 1100 is a pretty quick bike through corners as long as you set up a smooth entry into the corner, then power through and blast o! ut the other side. I've blown away squids on GSXR750s and 1100s using this riding style, mainly because I can now carry a higher cornering speed.
Keith teaches you that braking hard into a corner just upsets the suspension and maked the bike pogo all th way through. Get your braking done before the corner and the suspension is set up to provide traction all the way through the corner.

This book has some definite merit; however, readers will most certainly feel that they have earned the knowledge it contains by enduring the book's oppressive style and format. Mr. Code's credentials as a trainer of riders sound impressive and he does seem to understand motorcycles, especially their road-racing aspects. His difficulty lies in explaining the principles and techniques he espouses in a clear, concise manner. Never have I encountered a book such as this one where the writer feels compelled to include definitions for words like "goals", "purposes", "exaggerate", etc. Perhaps the riders he normally instructs abandoned education in their quest for undying motorcycle glory. At any rate, if you can get beyond the book's second-class writing and worse illustrations, there are some "gems" of wisdom to be found. Take this book in-hand when you have time to concentrate on what is being taught in spite of how it is stated.

This book is a big improvement, over the original Volume I version from years ago; which seemed to contain more brain teasers, than actual riding mechanics. The key topics that a new racer would likely need to think about, appear to be highlighted in this version. For me, I found the book's riding references to be mainly looking at the racetrack, and not all aspects are things I'm willing to attempt to experiment with while riding with cars around me on public roads. I recently came across another book on AMAZON ("Sportbiking The Real World"), which seems to be a better fit for me as a street going only sportbike rider, but I'm keeping this book around too. The glossary of terms that Keith's included at the rear of this book, seemed a bit misguided; defining common English language words that a 6th grader would know? Overall, a good resource for new racers.

Code's book is packed with information that no rider can afford not to know. I'm a better rider this morning as a result of what I read last night. The basics of this book should be distilled to pamphlet form and distributed to everyone taking an experienced rider course. The book is well-written, with only one niggling flaw: Code insists on asterisk-ing and defining common words throughout, which suggests that the target audience is 16- to 18-year-olds with two-digit IQs. I have no problem with Code defining terms such as "highside," but words like "stare," or "deliberate" should probably go undefined. Nonetheless, I recommend this book enthusiastically. Code is a cornering guru.

Ok, Twist I is a must read. But Twist II is a better book. Perhaps because it is more practical in its focus. Twist II focuses on things we all think about: turning, braking, throttle control with mutiple chapters on each topic. Code follows the critical elements from Twist I on reference points and in Twist II tells us how to actually get the bike to do what we need it to do. He also does a better writing job than in Twist I and the length of the chapters and typesize make it an easy read. I have read it twice now. If you are a canyon carver, you must buy this book despite its track focus. Chances are you will go to track days anyway.

This book contains excellent, CRITICAL information about motorcycle handling that I haven't seen anywhere else. A must read no matter what kind of motorcycle you have, or where you ride.
However, prepare to suffer. You must learn to ignore asterisks and bold-print throughout. As further insult, definitions are thoughtfully provided by the author for such words and phrases as "depend" and "ideal scene". I can only assume that either the writer quit school after the 4th grade, or that most of the students in his experience were just learning to speak.

There is good info here on riding. But one must be prepared to dig it out from the mud. What is funny about the book is that Keith goes on to explain the meaning of words like "depend" etc. If I did not know the meaning of these words, I would never have started reading his book in the first place! Every chapter needs to be read over and over again to make sense of what the author is trying to say. If you are passionate about riding and really ready to endure any hardship inorder to improve, you can read this book.

Keith Code's book provided me with an understanding of the how's and why's a motorcycle performs in high speed cornering maneuvers. The book provides detailed descriptions of why the motorcycle reacts as it does to rider, road and speed inputs. He clearly explains what to do and not to do to maintain proper driver and motorcycle conditions. He emphasises how survival responses (SRs) can cause problems when riding at high speeds and cornering at high speeds. A very well done book that I scan prior to each ride.
