This second volume uncovers and traces the direct links between man and machine. Keith's unique ability to unravel complexities and establish simple, essential principles, provide both street and race riders with real tools to think about, and understand for themselves the problems of riding. The author says: "The ten years since the publication of TWIST OF THE WRIST have been exciting ones for motorcyclists. That volume was my first attempt to create a 'technology' of riding: I knew there was one, it was simply a question of finding it. But TWIST OF THE WRIST II contains more real riding technology and addresses the source of our classic rider problems."
The most chronically badly written book I've ever read. Quite unbelievably the author gives explanations for simple words throughout the text, when anyone who doesn't know the definitions of common words would not be literate enough to read a book. BUT, it gets 4 stars as the information is fantastic and worth the challenges of the obstructive prose. The developed techniques are extremely useful for both track and road riding and definitely require practise on the bike. Shame he self-published and didn't have the rigour of a publishing company's copy editors to refine the text. Still highly recommended though; a conscientious rider's handling bible.

This book was recommended to me by a couple of friends, and I'd be happy to recommend it to anyone else wanting to know how to break down the art of cornering. I haven't finished reading it yet, as there is so much to apply to your riding, hence you can read a little bit, then go practice what you've read - and repeat til your cornering like a gun!!
It's well written although sometimes i feel as though he could've expanaded a little more on some concepts. All in all a great book - happy to recommend it.
PS - if you search on youtube for some California Superbike School clips, you can find some short vids putting some of the books topics into practice.
Excellent informative reading from Kieth Code. Great for new and experienced riders. Really helpful hints about survival reaction techniques. The book also has side bar comments by Doug Chandler.
I have already put some of the new skills I have learnt into action. Whether you are dedicated track rider or weekend hacker this book is probably the only book you will need.
This book is amazing. Easy to read, understand and implement. I've had great results already after just one track day using these techniques. Thoroughly recommended for people wanting to improve their racing or track day technique.
great read, took a while to digest parts as they are in depth, many of the points required actual practice on a bike to fully understand the techniques, i havnt read the first book but it seemed fine jumping straight into this one, great read!
A well written and easy to follow guide to riding motorcycles. Clear diagrams and descriptions for techniques make this book useful to riders of all levels of experience. Riding a motorcycle is so much about thinking (you don't see motocyclists riding while eating, drinking, or talking on their cell phone like other road users) and this book makes you think. Written from years of experience on and off the race track, Keith Code has a unique view on what works and doesn't work when riding a motorcycle. A view that every motorcyclist should understand even if you don't agree with everything he says, yet!
