While we can learn quite a bit from reading, the best way to improve our riding form and skills is to actually get out on the track and lay down some rubber.
But when it comes to suspension, translating feel on the track to turning knobs on your fork (giggity?) may take a bit more book knowledge.
I've done some searching on this forum, and the only real book I've found mentioned significantly was Sportbike Suspension Tuning, by Andrew Trevitt, which I promptly added to my Christmas list
. Of course we can learn a lot from a suspension seminar as well, but for those of us that may not be able to attend, or just like to teach ourselves, maybe we can get a list of books you guys have come across and would gladly vouch for. Personally I get a bit overwhelmed when I search Amazon and 15 books come up, all that sound the same.
(Also, just a note to admins, it may not be a bad idea to have a sticky in one of the sections of recommended or highly regarded literature, of all kinds....just a thought
Sportbike Suspension Tuning - Andrew Trevitt
Race Tech's Motorcycle Suspension Bible - Paul Thede
