Hello and Welcome!

If you’ve arrived at this page, it’s likely that you have either listened to the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast or read one of my books.

First off, thank you for following along. Your support means a lot.

If you’re looking for the my one-page Cheat Sheet for my book Motorcycle Smarts, you can download it here.

If you’re looking for the How to Avoid Most Lowside and Highside Crashes Guide, I no longer provide that in .pdf due to copyright limitations.

However, I rebuilt this site in early 2024 to include much of what was in that guide. In other words, I’ve provided the contents here—along with some of my best tips from my other books. I thought it was the right thing to do.

I built this site to reach as many riders as possible. I hope you’ll share it with your riding buddies if you think it might add value.

On this site, I provide some of my best tips from my books.

Also, if you’re looking to sign up for the Motorcycle Smarts Tips Newsletter, you can do that below. If you’re passionate about riding, this is the first thing you should probably do.

I occasionally do a special on my books called “Buy Your Buddy a Book” where I lower the price as low as I can on Amazon. Only the folks who have signed up below will get those notifications via email. I try to do it several times a year.

I also provide free books to Rider Coaches. Here’s how to get a copy. Thank you for what you do.

I’m also happy to provide a box of books to motorcycle organization for rallies and such.

I’m only able to do this because of my amazing sponsors. Please check them out. They are making a difference.

But I quickly became frustrated with how the mainstream motorcycle mega books glossed over some of the most important topics like lowside and highside crashes (what are they, what triggers them, and how riders can avoid them), the importance of ABS, and rider fear.

We hate SPAM too.

The Motorcycle Smarts Book Series

Motorcycle Smarts

Book 1 in the Series.

“This is by far the best motorcycling book I have read. This book is very readable. I learned more of importance about motorcycling safely than I did in the two MSF courses I took.”
— L R Libsch on Amazon
Motorcycle Dream Ride

Book 2 in the Series.

“Very well-written book about a motorcycle journey from Alabama to Alaska and back. When reading the book, I felt like I was along on the journey. Good insight as to what to expect, but not too much detail to be cumbersome. Organization of the story and writer methods were appreciated.”
— Mary R. on Amazon
Motorcycle Hacks

Book 3 in the Series.

“I have been riding for 60 years and learned new things in this book. Notably, how lowsides and highsides are triggered, and look where you want to go, not where you don’t want to go. Must read for all riders!”
—James L. Clark on Amazon
