THE COMPLETE BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO MOTORCYCLING

Aggressively conversational in tone and packed with advice on everything from helmet safety and motor size to accessory buying and ""family fun awheel,"" this guide touches all the bases at least in passing. Serious riders, however, will soon need more mechanical advice than Roth's outline of routine cleaning (""blitzing up""), spark plug replacement and oil changing (""a cinch""). Edmonds' Motorcycling for Beginners is actually more complete on the basic techniques of driving and road safety that novices need, but Roth does have a few sensible words to say on everything from motor noise and air pollution to customized choppers. The big question is whether his high speed patter blitzes you up or down.
