Tarmac Tactics

TARMAC TACTICS - the second book in a series of three written by Kevin Williams of Survival Skills Rider Training which each look at different aspects of motorcycle riding technique.


WHY READ ANOTHER BOOK - if you've already read 'Motorcycle Roadcraft' or the IAM's own handbook, you may be wondering. Simple. Both books offer a framework for developing your riding but neither offer much in the way of PRACTICAL EXAMPLES of where and how to use the skills.

 

This isn't a criticism, but it is a major limitation. How do we apply the skills we've learned to the roads we ride? And how do we cope when we arrive in a novel situation we haven't encountered before - how will we recognise what's happening and what do we do about it? If we've learned to ride in a city centre, how will we know about the issues posed by a rural lane? Or if we're experienced on country roads, will we anticipate all the problems we can come across in an urban environment?

 

DESCRIPTION - These are the holes that 'Tarmac Tactics' aims to fill. This 228 page book takes the reader on a journey to the everyday places that we are most likely to ride, as well as to many of the more unusual riding environments we may encounter from contested big-city centres to the hairpin bends leading up to the tops of mountains and down again.

 

Along the way the book shows how to cope with the 'standard motorcycle crashes' - at junctions and intersections, during overtaking, and on corners - by recognising the common mistakes and learning how to avoid making them.

 

Discover straightforward practical solutions to cope with the threats posed daily by the road layout, the weather and other road users, all in an easy-to-read format.

 

Whatever your standard of riding from learner to highly experienced, Kevin's insights from years of working as a courier and a full-time instructor are bound to help you survive the 21st century roads.

:: 'MIND over MOTORCYCLE'  is THE 21st century guide to the mental game of riding a motorcycle. The book takes an in-depth look at the mental side of riding and shows how our brains - built for a top speed of 20 mph - have adapted (sort-of) to cope with a modern motorcycle.

 

:: 'Survival SKILLS' is a unique 'riding course in a book', offerings an easy-to-follow, step-by-step approach in personal development as a motorcyclist. Starting with the basics of advanced riding and steadily building skills step-by-step to the most technically difficult techniques, each section concludes with a series of straightforward and highly practical exercises to try out on the road.
