I wish I had this information when I got my bike in 2005. I had to figure everything out on my own. I still found allot of new information. I feel more confident riding now. I know statistically what is more dangerous so I know where to be especially cautious. I would like to buy this book to have on hand for reference material when I have more money. Thank you for this book.
