Description

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.
