"I have tried to offer a new approach to technical-scientific writing by combining the exact and often aseptic nature of scientific discourse with my passion for this perfect vehicle."
The author has succeeded admirably in his attempt.
While I agree with many of the other reviewers that this book requires an engineering level education to grasp all the presented concepts, I disagree with the idea that it is only for engineers...
If you don't know the maths, let this book inspire you to learn them; the physics are beautiful.
My one caveat is that the rider (Pilot?) is under-represented.
As a mass significant to the dynamic duo of machine/human interaction I think the concept could use some development.
A few chapters were interesting but it is suited to engineers deep (and I mean deep) into building motorcycles and performance accessories.
It's not a 'light' book, you have to read it slowly to understand it, It has many equations and graphs to explain things.
I recommend it for people that want to study motorcycle dynamics and have mathematics background, otherwise they will hate the book.
It should be a must for every engineer who wants to design a motorbike, saving a lot of time of empirical corrections once the bike is already built.
