You may have noticed this book that was over on the left, “Motorcycle Design and Technology” by Gaetano Cocco. This is the new paperback version of a really good book mentioned back when we were talking about a sportbike buildoff. They have the table of contents and some of the pages online so you can get an idea of what’s in it.
With most new sportbikes, you have so many options for adjusting the suspension, that, with a little work and no knowledge, you can mess things up so bad the bike will be darn near unrideable. This book dissects everything about the physics of motorcycle motion and the forces acting upon the bike. If you’re one of those folks who gets into understanding the tech stuff, this is your book. Check it out.
