    A Twist of the Wrist II by Keith Code

    So I have read the Bayliss book "A faster way" and found it helpful but in the end I found that it was more like a how to book but with a ton of sea stories on how he did stuff at different tracks. I felt I need more info along the way and started doing google searches on different terms and techniques etc and happened upon Keith Codes book "A Twist of the Wrist II."

    To be honest I judged the book by the cover and dismissed it at first due to the cover art, it just looked like a movie poster for a 1950's sci-fi horror film. So I am on youtube and find some video snippets of CSS in the UK and that lead me to Keith's movies based on the book. I have links to the video down in the pics and videos http://tampasportbikes.com/forum/sho...bike-School-UK.

    Keith's movie is in english but subtitled so I found that distracting but it did open me up to his book which I have since bought and been reading. At better than half the cost of Bayliss's brag book Keith's easily out weighs it in content by a factor of 400.

    The book breaks stuff down Barney style and for key terms mentioned in each chapter he takes great care to explain them at the end. The book takes you mentally and technically through what they call Survival Responses which leads us to making mistakes.

    You really owe it to yourself to get this book, or watch the movie at the link above, and find out for yourself what is happening in your head and how that translates to your street and/or track riding.

    There used to be a full non-subtitled version on YouTube a couple years ago but I cannot locate it now, but I have also seen this version (your link). I need to get /read the book.

    the movie seems a little dorky but I get the wisdom behind how they shot it now that I have read the book.

    Dorky yes, but it's about the craft I/we Love. I couldn't even tell you how many times I have watched it

    hopefully they update it. I think it was filmed in 07 or 08 and if memory serves me right i think they added an 8th SR.

    Its really difficult for any cycle book to challenge this as it's essentially the bible of motorcycling.

    no doubt, the art work in the bayliss book is fetching but where this book lacks in the art department it laps the bayliss book in meaningful material.
