What are your favorite books on riding?

Postby Areomyst » Fri Aug 26, 2016 9:24 pm

I'm curious as to everyone's favorite books on riding and safety. I currently own titles by Keith Code, David Hough, Pat Hahn, Greg Fraizer and more, but I am curious - what are your favorite books on riding strategy, safety, and technique - and why?

These books focus primarily on motorcycles, but a lot of the information can be directly transferred to scooters. What tidbits of information do you find helps your own everyday riding and why?

David L. Hough's Proficient Motorcycling: The Ultimate Guide to Riding Well. Hands down allowed me to pass the BRC, and set my skills as a 2-wheeled rider. Though not specifically a book on riding it allowed me into the world of scooter culture and history when I was an outsider looking in -- The Scooter Book, by Bob Woods. My recent reads are more in the narrative and memoir range - I see by my Outfit, by Peter S. Beagle, and The Man Who Would Stop at Nothing: Long-Distance Motorcycling's Endless Road, by Melissa Holbrook Pierson.
