Book Review by Richard B.
Good introductory manual
Being new to motorcycles, I found this to be the perfect introductory book. I found the first 310 pages to be particularly helpful as that’s where the real information is. After that is the appendix which is a buyer’s guide to new bikes. It seems to me that this appendix will become outdated quickly as new models are made every year.
Appendix B, a buyer’s guide to used bikes, is too scant in information to be of any use. But there’s so much useful information in the main part of the book that I decided to give the book a full 5-star rating.
