Motorcycle Riding Techniques by the Three-Time World Superbike Champion
Riding a motorcycle at the world championship level requires incredible skills, but the same techniques that took Troy Bayliss to three World Superbike Championships can help you become a better rider on the street or track.
In Troy Bayliss: A Faster Way, essential techniques that produce faster lap times, greater control, and improved safety are explained in practical terms that any rider can grasp. The book includes chapters devoted to visual skills, body positioning, line selection, steering, braking, and throttle control. And it also explains how bike setup and mental and physical conditioning can help riders find a faster way in any setting.
The techniques and tips in Troy Bayliss: A Faster Way are illustrated with color photographs showing Troy applying them in action at the track. There are also diagrams and illustrations that explain the principles and technology behind each technique. And the book begins with a Foreword by Paolo Ciabetti, who helped bring Troy to Ducati in 2000 and has remained an important influence ever since. Whether you're a street rider, track-day rider, or aspiring racer, you're sure to benefit from Troy's insights on riding a motorcycle for maximum effect. And if you think you're as quick as you'll ever be, you'll be surprised by what you can do with minute changes in technique, body position, and mental training. "The most important thing to realize about motorcycle riding is that it's a dynamic skill," Troy observes in the book's Introduction. "You will always be able to improve or change something to be faster, smoother, and safer."
The rare combination of natural talent, skill, commitment and determination of Troy Bayliss only comes along once every few decades. For motorcycle racing fans as much as riders and racers, A Faster Way offers insight on how Troy's technique made the difference at racetracks around the world, and singled him out as one of the best riders of his day.
