4.0 von 5 Sternen Not as good as Twist of the Wrist 2 or Proficient Motorcycling, but still covers some basics. More apropos for racers 15. Januar 2011
Von Mr. EcoBoost - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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. 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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good food for thought. 26. November 2006
Von Ulrich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Must-read for anyone with a motorcycle - finally as an eBook! 23. Januar 2013
Von HF - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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. I know this book saved me from making tons of mistakes and and/or crashing my bike.

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential manual for increasing your riding skills... 6. August 2013
Von TeeNado658 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This manual has helped me immensely to understand the science behind motorcycle road racing. It is well written and easy to understand. It provides workable lessons that can be tried and experienced to build your confidence and skills. I used it also as an excellent foundation to my attendance of a racing school. Keith Code is by far one of the most respected trainers in motorcycle riding and his techniques are globally recognized for their easy to comprehend style.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If you want to go faster on the track... 16. Februar 2007
Von BeemerBob - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.
