The David Hough Books
One of the biggest benefits i've gotten in joining this group is information on better riding techniques. I'm no stranger to a bike and have been riding steadily for about 30 years on the street, before that, another 6 or so on the dirt, but an old dog can learn some new tricks and there have been plenty of them to learn here--and some are even related to motorcycling!
Not only have i been taught how to bring my LT to a stop without wobbling from one side of a lane to the other by members of this group, I also learned about David Hough's books and I've got to say, they are really excellent texts for anyone wanting to brush up on their riding abilities.
While they'll not replace an MSF course, they're sure full of exercises and info that will make you a better all around rider, at least IMHO.
So, thanks to whoever it was that mentioned the books and I've done my obligatory duty in ensuring others get the benefit of accumulated knowledge now.
(And no, i receive nothing from David for pushin these books!)
