About this title:

Synopsis:

As anyone who’s been on one knows, big bikes--Harleys, dressers, tourers, cruisers--handle differently than smaller bikes.  They have different centers of gravity; they steer more slowly; they put you in a different riding positions; and riding one--especially riding it well--requires different skills.  This book is aimed at helping owners of such motorcycles--bikes with big engines, long wheelbases, and a lot of weight--get the best ride out of them.  Maximum Control addresses every aspect of riding--steering, positioning, braking, and carrying a passenger or heavy load.  With clear information on differences in equipment--brakes, engine, drive system, even tires--this expert, accessible guide provides everything you need to know to handle your bike like a pro.  The outcome will be, as promised, Maximum Control--and the ride of your life.

From the Back Cover:

Nothing beats the comfort of a big touring or cruising motorcycle, but the cost for that comfort is increased weight, and with increased weight comes increased challenges for a rider. A heavyweight motorcycle starts, stops, and turns differently than a lighter bike, especially when it is loaded down with a week’s worth of gear in the panniers and a passenger on the pillion. Without proper training and riding skills, that comfortable big bike can lead to catastrophe. Covering topics such as bike setup, low-speed maneuvers, emergency braking, and advanced cornering techniques, with practical riding drills for each section, Maximum Control: Mastering your Dresser, Tourer, Cruiser and Other Heavyweight Bike teaches you the skills needed to take charge of your heavyweight motorcycle.
