Starting Out Sportbike
An Introduction to Sportbike Riding for Women
By Stacy N. Menas

Starting Out Sportbike was written for people who always wanted to ride a sportbike but never knew how to get started, and for those who wanted to transition from a cruiser or dirt bike into the sportbike world. Written from a woman sportbike rider's point of view, extra tips have been included for the ladies, but it can be useful for anyone looking to get started from the beginning. Find out:
* How and where to get started - safely
* How much it costs
* What gear you need to buy
* Which motorcycles make good starter bikes
* Riding tips you won't find anywhere else
* Methods to get over your fear and get better as a rider

Also included is a glossary which defines some "street" terms, plus lists of resources to get what you need. It's all here to help you start out in one of the most exciting motor sports out there!

You should write a review, Donna. That way we can evaluate its effectiveness.
