For the new rider, the returning rider, and the veteran who’s looking for more information, this handy book has it all: the necessary facts on street-riding from first to last, clearly and concisely laid out. Author Bill Stermer brings an insider’s knowledge to the job, and the result is an expert, user-friendly guide to selecting, equipping, understanding, and using a street motorcycle–with occasional useful detours into such topics as road food and tunes, security and first aid, staying warm and dry, carrying laptops or cameras, and shipping your bike. From a close survey of the types of street motorcycles and different engine configurations, Stermer goes on to discuss features and options, accessories and apparel, mechanical considerations (from power and suspension to detailing and tires), and using a motorcycle in a group or alone or with a passenger, to commute or camp, for rallies or tours.
