As anyone who's been on one knows, big bikes--Harleys, dressers, tourers, cruisers--handle differently than smaller bikes. They have different centers of gravity; they steer more slowly; they put you in a different riding positions; and riding one--especially riding it well--requires different skills. This book is aimed at helping owners of such motorcycles--bikes with big engines, long wheelbases, and a lot of weight--get the best ride out of them. "Maximum Control" addresses every aspect of riding--steering, positioning, braking, and carrying a passenger or heavy load. With clear information on differences in equipment--brakes, engine, drive system, even tires--this expert, accessible guide provides everything you need to know to handle your bike like a pro. The outcome will be, as promised, "Maximum Control"--and the ride of your life.

Industry Reviews

"I find it to be quite thorough and easy to understand. I particularly like the "building block" presentation and how it emphasizes laying a good foundation of the skills necessary to effectively ride a large motorcycle. The practice exercises are clearly well thought out, easy to understand, and simple to set up for just about anyone. I definitely will be recommending it to my students and friends who already ride big bikes and especially to those who are taking on one of the "heavyweights" for the first time." - Marshall W. Munce, Owner Southwest Motorcycle Training (San Antonio, Texas)
