I bought this along with the author's Proficient Motorcycling title. I found that Street Strategies is mostly the same material presented in a different format. If you want to brush up or learn to ride better get Proficient Motorcycling alone.
Otherwise, this book has some good tips for staying safe on the street.
Street Strategies is a book filled full of snapshots that warn the rider of potential dangers while riding on the road. Proficient Motorcycling is a book with a larger charge. It warns of road dangers, in addition points the way toward more skillful riding. It has exercises designed to help the rider build the skills needed to avoid danger and feel the satisfaction of good bike control.
I changed my star rating from four to five stars 12/16/01. The book has five stars worth of information. Originally, I was comparing the book to Hogue's "Proficient Motorcycling" which I still think is a better first choice for many riders. However, considered on its own merits "Street Strategies" is an excellent choice.
The author discusses about 73 different topics that relate to motorcycle safety and devotes about two pages to each topic. The first part of the discussion explains the problem and the second part gives you a solution for dealing with the problem. For instance, if the problem is how to make a quick stop while the bike is leaned over in a curve, the solution is to "swerve the bike upright" and then apply the brakes.
Reading this book will give you the ability to recognize dangerous situations and then take whatever actions are needed to keep from having an accident. If motorcycles are a part of your life and you would like to avoid expensive repairs or painful injuries, I highly recommend that you read this book. I found quite a few things of interest in this book, and I've been riding motorcycles for more than 25 years.
