    Beginner Riders' Manual

    Is there another place to take my lessons besides surrey?

    What are some of the things that a beginner rider must do?

    When in doubt, ask a professional riding instructor
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    If you're looking for a book to read up on riding, everyone recommends "A Twist of the Wrist" part 1 or 2 for the theory and good techniques.

    I, however, recommend "Identifying Coastal Flora and Fauna." Its always nice to be able to name the plants you come in close contact to when you bin it. Makes reading the "So I crashed tonight" posts much more enjoyable.

    As it is off-season for schools, may I suggest the following books:

    Your bike's Owners Manual

    ICBC's Road Sense for Riders

    ICBC's Tuning Up for Riders

    'The Complete Idiot's Guide to Motorcycles' by Darwin Holstrom and Charles Everitt (with intro by Jay Lenno) (Alpha Books; a div of Penguin Press)

    'The Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Guide to Motorcycling Excellence' (Whitehorse Press)

    'The Motorcycle Book' by Alan Seeley (Motorbooks International)

    'Proficient Motorcycling' and
    'More Proficient Motorcycling' by David L Hough (Bowtie Press)

    Then once the basics are established, a bit more advanced books are:

    'Total Control - High Performance Street Riding Techniques' by Lee Parks (Motorbooks International)

    'Smooth Riding the Pridmore Way' by Reg Pridmore (Whitehorse Press)

    'Ride Hard Ride Smart - Ultimate Street Strategies for Advanced Motorcyclists' by Pat Hahn (Motorbooks International)

    'Sport Riding Techniques - How to Develop Real World Skills for Speed, Safety and Confidence on the Street and Track' by Nick Ienatsch (with forword by Kenny Roberts) (David Bull Publishing)
