Motorcycles weren't designed by opinions or good advice and riding them is the same. Keith Code's A Twist of the Wrist II describes with precision the essential riding techniques that all riders need to understand.
Code lays out the seven knee jerk 'Survival Reactions' which every rider has experienced and clearly describes how they are, in every case, contrary to good technique. It is the first book to describe these and goes on to define, in step-by-step detail, the proper technical skills necessary to overcome them. Having good technical riding skills allows riders to conquer their fears and overcome their barriers to cornering.
When Keith Code starts talking, pay attention.

Drawing on his 30 years of experience running CSS, which has taught over , students and 15 U. Superbike champions how to be better riders, Keith Code puts his heart and soul in everything he does. Their youthful exuberance far exceeds their skills, and their shiny new sportbikes seem destined to shorten their life expectancy.
A Twist of the Wrist II
Early on, we are told that our instinctive survival reactions , or SRs, are the biggest barrier to riding smoothly and confidently. The eight SRs are: body steering instead of countersteering; chopping the throttle; counter leaning; tightening the grip on the bars; not looking through the turn; target fixation; freezing up; and grabbing the brakes. Stop and think about that for a moment.
At California Superbike School, I remember Code telling us that motorcycles want to do the right thing. It is our job to create the least interference possible with their designed function.
To do that, we must consciously prevent ourselves from overreacting. In the heat of the moment, we need to stay relaxed. By staying centered and focused, we can continue to countersteer, maintain throttle, lean into the turn, keep a light grip on the bars, look where we want to go and stay in control. For new riders, veterans, racers and CSS alumni alike, it is great reference material.
