Cycle Gear on Pecos just got a bunch of the Total Control books.
This is the book that Lee Parks ARC class is based on.
If you haven't heard about it, you need to go get it.
It is the best all around riding technique book I have ever read.
It is far more "real world" than Twist of The Wrist 1 and 2.
Everything in the book is 100% applicable to street riding as well
as the track.

The Pecos store is a test market for this book. If it sells well, it
go into all the stores. I believe Lee signed these as well.

I am trying to get Lee back in October to do another ARC class.
This book is a great start before taking the class.

I attached 2 videos, one is from his ARC class. It is the Behind the scenes
footage that shot with our web cam while filming the class for our show.
The second is me doing a basic suspension check at a memorial ride for Double D.
I learned how to do this at his class. The info is in the book as well.
