One more thing...I have them all and have read them all.  I learned more in one instructional track day than those books.

If you want to learn street survival skills they are the same ones you use while driving.  Yes believe it or not.

It depends on the person and the instructor.  You probably wouldn't have gotten near so much out of the track day if the reading hadn't prepared you.
For me, I prefer to (and do better by) read something, practice it, re-read it and practice more and then go on to the next 'lesson'.  I've had instructors (non-M/C) that jamb things at you. If you don't get it, they just jamb harder.
I do admit that with most things, you can only go so far by yourself and immediate, constructive feedback is very valuable.

I'm serious.

Even if your riding level is above it, there might still be something you can learn from it, or something you find interesting, or some tidbit you can pass on to a fellow rider.

Reading is a great way to improve your skills.  simply "riding more" only enforces the bad habits you probably have.

I loved "Sport Riding Techniques" by Nick Ienatsch.  (I shouldn't have tried to spell that.)  And "Total Control" by Lee Parks.  For track day prospectives, I like "The Track Day Handbook" by Kent Larson.

OK, so Lee Parks Total Control is not available on iBooks or Kindle. What do you recommend that is worth reading that is available from either ebook service?

Edited to add that this was my 1K post.

And it wasn't about cats.

The skills taught in the "ride like a pro" video should be acquired by everyone who ride. The friction zone techniques will prevent many a dropped bikes.
