Riding in the Zone: Advanced Techniques For Skillful Motorcycling
By Ken Condon
Published by Whitehorse Press (2009)
Riding in the Zone is a user-friendly guide to motorcycling that will teach you all the hows and whys of advanced street riding techniques. Condon covers topics you may have heard of but haven’t practiced much, like trail braking, and some skills you may be doing already but never really understood, like countersteering. From riding with the right state-of-mind to traction sense, all subjects are broken down with pictures and diagrams and demonstrated in the accompanying DVD.
Riding In The Zone will help you gain confidence in your abilities and skills, and, most importantly, an increased understanding of your bike’s behavior. You can also use Condon’s tips for how to practice the techniques on your next ride so you progress safely on the street.
Ken Condon writes the longstanding “Proficient Motorcycling and Street Strategies” column for Motorcycle Consumer News, is a Motorcycle Safety Foundation RiderCoach, and a chief track day instructor in New England.
