Reviewer: L. Gifford, Missouri
Hi Jim,
   I just finished reading your book. I signed up for an msf class after I flipped the last page and I am feeling a little more confident about the whole experience. I am a petite woman and have always wanted to be more than a passenger but never got up the courage. Thanks for providing that first baby step!
   Update: I took the motorcycle class today and had a great time. They put me on a little Honda Rebel which was perfect for my build. I am hooked! Thanks for getting me started. I found that learning the material they gave us in class came easier for me after reading your book as well.

Reviewer: Arline, Burlington, Ontario, Canada
I've received my e-book, have printed it out and it's exactly what I needed and wanted. The contents fit the bill for me as I am a woman, 62, slightly built, very fit and nervous about the whole thing. I've always wanted to do this and it's now or never. I am about to sign up for the driver's training.
   I have researched several sites and found this book to cover everything that a beginner would need to know, unlike most of them. I would also like to add that I liked the constant emphasis on the danger and the safety aspects. At times I wondered if it were a good thing for me to do but the writer also encourages you to "follow your dream." And that's very good indeed.

"An Eye Opening Book"
I had no idea about all the little facets involved with learning a to ride a motorcycle. Like an ignorant newbie, I just assumed you could hop on and ride away, like a bicycle. I am extremely glad I read this book before trying anything stupid on a motorcycle. I just got my motorcycle license and bought a used GS500E and I'm loving every minute of it! [insert cheesy grin here]. I highly recommend this ebook.

Reviewer: Erin P., Culver City , California
"Learned a Lot"
I'm impressed by the amount of material covered in this book. I knew literally nothing at all about motorcycles, except that I wanted to ride one... you have to ask why, being a girl who knows absolutely nobody who rides a motorcycle. Or "bike" I guess I should say. Go figure. Anyway, I just passed my license test and I'm so excited about getting a bike of my own. I definitely learned a lot.

"Thanks Jim"
Hello. My name is Harry Humphries and I am a 65 year old grandfather. And yes, I ride a motorcycle.
   I bought the first edition of this book 3 years ago. I've been meaning to write a review during this time, but I never got around to it until now. Too busy riding I suppose. I see you changed your website. It looks much nicer.
   I purchased "Learn to Ride a Motorcycle" at a time when I was just retired from my position as a school administrator and I honestly didn't know what I was going to do with my time. I had secretly wanted to try riding a motorcycle all my life, but had never actually taken the plunge. And before I knew it, I was a grandfather, and--I thought--now too old. But this book convinced me that it wasn't too late to try!
   When I went to the training session, I thought I would be the oldest new student by far...surprise! I was actually only the second oldest, and there were numerous other students in their 40s and 50s, as well as many women. I purchased my first bike, the Vulcan 500, 3 years ago, which I have since sold (but am still very fond of in my heart). Now, I am a big fan of "touring" bikes because they are so comfortable for an "old fogey" such as myself.
   At the beginning, my wife was against the idea of me riding motorcycles, but when she realized that I was firmly convinced in what I wanted, she was won over, and now rides along with me as my loyal passenger. And the grandkids think it is so "cool" that "grandpa rides a Harley." (It's actually a Honda Goldwing, but the bike itself doesn't really matter, just the ride!)
   The motorcycle community is so amazing, and we've met so many honest, down-home, quality folks over the past few years. The highlight of every weekend is when my wife and I meet up with our favorite local community of Goldwing riders and take a long scenic group tour together. I want to personally thank Jim Carpenter for writing this book, as it got me started on a path that has quite literally changed our lives. I believe what sets Jim apart is his unwavering commitment to safety, and that has made all the difference to me. Now, I can't even imagine retirement without riding!

Very down and dirty, gets to the point, in your face. Did I read it all? Nope. But I already see that it's good.

"A D*** Good Guide to Learning Motorcycles"
I have been turned off in the past by some motorcycling books that tend to be jazzy and stylish with little or no emphasis on safety but your book got me going. Learn to Ride a Motorcycle is written with a safe rider in mind. Jim's step-by-step approach to introducing the world of motorcycling helped me a lot. He recommends taking a structured approach to motorcycling--getting the right mindset, clearing all the wrong notions about riding (created by Hollywood movies), getting trained, selecting the proper gear and then buying a bike. Jim Carpenter has done a great job by giving additional information about selecting the right type of bike, gear etc. I will be getting my first motorcycle very soon. I think Learn to Ride a Motorcycle is not only a good book for beginners but it also has a lot to offer to the riders already on the streets.
