At last… a 21st century approach to motorcycle riding. A motorcycle can do only two things – change speed or change direction. But how, where and when we achieve that has a major impact on just how safe we are on the roads. Based on his practical riding courses, Survival SKILLS is a fresh new look at riding from top rider coach Kevin Williams. Taking a uniquely pragmatic approach to building new skills, many of the lessons were learned the hard way by the author. At the same time, the book delves into the latest research and is packed with fresh ways of looking at better riding technique. The innovative content explores the No Surprise? No Accident approach to rider safety and is carefully structured to improve your riding whether you are a novice or an expert rider. Junctions, corners and overtaking all get the Survival Skills approach. The best bolt-on accessory for any bike is the rider. This book will help you become the best rider you can be.

However smart we humans think we are, the basic structure of our brain is shared with the very first mammals that appeared 200 million years ago. Some parts are older still – and designed more for survival rather than reasoned thinking or complex tasks like riding a motorcycle. Every time we ride our bikes we ask the various parts of our brains to manage a complex interchange of roles, as we balance instinctive reactions with learned techniques. This book demystifies the reptilian brain, limbic system and neo-cortex, shows how they juggle the job of riding back and forth, explains why things sometimes go wrong, and in a simple, step-by-step process suggests ways we can train our brain to make better decisions as we ride.

A look back on how a 19 year old came to ride a motorcycle. — From buying a bike and passing the test in the mid 70s, to learning to deal with London traffic as a courier, to holidays, crashes, moped endurance racing and rants along the way! — “I read ‘Riding With the Devil’ over Christmas. Great read! There are some great despatching anecdotes, some rather eccentric holidays (eg the one where he and his girlfriend spent about a week straining metal shards out of the bike’s oil before eventually towing it home; and the Bol D’Or one), plus – perhaps the best – the ‘Moped Mayhem’ race season.” — Simon Carswell
