Words from the Industry...

“Full of fact, insight and the kind of insider knowledge that makes you realise just how races are won. It’s probably the best technical motorcycling book that I’ve ever read.”
Matt Wildee. Senior Editor Motorcycle News (and ex Editor Performance Bikes Magazine)

“This book is a milestone in helping people to better understand how racing motorcycles work ... If this book had been around when I started in MotoGP, it would have saved me a lot of time and stress. Not to mention arguments!”
Tom O’Kane. Senior MotoGP™ engineer

“I've worked my way through the book. Great bit of work; great pics and layout too. That's a LOT of info........!!!”
Pierre Terblanche. Freelance Motorcycle Designer

“I love the tuning fork bike and the simple way you describe things. This book should be required reading for young and aspiring engineers.”
Alan Nicholls. Dunlop Motorsport (Motorcycles) engineer (Retd).

“Been reading your book, started with the fundamentals section. Very interesting and well written in the way you have split the bike into sections. Works for technical people and laymen as well.”
Peter Taylor. Motorcycle Chassis Project Engineer.

“This isn’t just one of those books you put in the loft, it goes on your coffee table because you’re going to want to pick it up every time you see new trick bits in winter testing photos and every time you watch a grand prix. Alternatively, keep it close to the garage – it may even help with setting up your own bike.”
