    I was once told that the biggest single destabilising factor affecting a motorcycle is the carbon based life form that sits on top of it. This book explores the many factors that affect how we as riders deal with the task of riding a motorcycle. Kevin Williams explores how our brain handles information and how it deals with integrating the stream of information that is feed to it by our senses as we ride. He examines how we react to sudden threats and explains why surprises are difficult for our minds to handle effectively. The book also describes how techniques from sports psychology can help prepare a riders mind for the task of riding a bike. This is a book that all motorcyclists should read, whether you are new to motorcycling; have many years of experience or are an advanced rider. This is not a book built on a system or "the system" and therefore is relevant to any rider any where in the world that wants to understand how to be the best rider they can be, and it starts...

    Quite simply, this is a superb book. Kevin adds new and important thinking to advanced riding. Highly recommended for all motorcyclists, new and experienced alike.

    A great book that I will use as a reference book for my teaching career. As an ADI and ex-examiner (DSA) I am always interested in books that can give me tips on improving my own safety, and the safety of my pupils. I teach car driving but use a motorcycle in the fair weather. It has some interesting facts on how our human brain works, how we acquire skills and why when we have an emergency situation, even though we may be trained traditionally for that emergency - why we do not handle this as well as we might. As a hypnotherapist I have to say the book is extremely well researched and factual, the authors information is accurate and helpful to anyone who is interested in the way we learn. This book is great and I will be buy two of them, one for my brother who is interested in safe motorbike riding and one for my brother in law who has just recovered from a motorbike accident.
