From the Author
"Help They're all Out to Get Me! The Motorcyclists Guode to Surviving the Everyday World" Was a special project for me, it was my first book that I wrote. It is also about a subject I am highly passionate about, motorcycling. I believe motorcycling , while it does have SOME inherent dangers is NOT as dangerous as most would say or think it is. It's all a matter of being in control and riding with your head, and not over it. No one is Superman, you will break if you fall, no matter what you believe. That being said though, there are many ways to avoid danger while on two wheels and having the most fun possible.
This is the only Non-Fiction book I have written to this point. The others (Including two new ones that are set to both be released this year) are fantasy or sci-fi.

It is a book I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to buy a bike for the first time. There are so many things to think about when riding and Ralph's book does a great job of laying them out and making one think about them. Anyone wanting to learn should read this book first and then take the MSF motorcycle course. It would definitely help them get riding safely, much faster than those who don't. In fact, it's probably a good read for any level of rider after you've had the bike in the garage for the last 5 months of winter and need a reminder of all the things to think about when riding on crowded public roads.
An excellent defensive driving guide, highly recommended.
One more thought which goes right to the preface, where the author says it's not really that bad. Well, oh yes it is. Distracted, careless and aggressive driving is the worst it has ever been in this nation. If you are a motorcyclist, bicyclist or even a pedestrian you need to call your elected officials and tell them to raise penalties substantially for distracted driving, etc. Tell them that if they won't then you'll vote in someone who will. If you're not doing your part to solve this problem then you are just counting your days until you die under the wheels of some selfish idiot's car or truck, because he or she thinks the worst thing that can happen for killing someone is a traffic summons.
It's a bargain: BUY IT!!!
