1 Review
For the new rider, the returning rider, and the veteran who’s looking for more information, this handy book has it all: the necessary facts on street-riding from first to last, clearly and concisely laid out.  Author Bill Stermer brings an insider’s knowledge to the job, and the result is an expert, user-friendly guide to selecting, equipping, understanding, and using a  street motorcycle—with occasional useful detours into such topics as road food and tunes, security and first aid, staying warm and dry, carrying laptops or cameras, and shipping your bike.   From a close survey of the types of street motorcycles and different engine configurations, Stermer goes on to discuss features and options, accessories and apparel, mechanical considerations (from power and suspension to detailing and tires), and using a motorcycle in a group or alone or with a passenger, to commute or camp, for rallies or tours.

Bill Stermer started riding in the 1960s, and became a moto-journalist when he joined Cycle magazine in 1978. Since then he has tested hundreds of motorcycles and has written more than two thousand articles. His first book, Motorcycle Touring, was published in 1982 as a how-to for the touring rider. On the Perimeter, published the following year, was the as-told-to autobiography of Hazel Kolb, "The Motorcycling Grandma," which he did for Harley-Davidson.After three years as editor of the trade magazine Motorcycle Industry, Stermer's touring background led him to Rider magazine in 1990. That same year his third book, Motorcycle Touring and Travel, was published. A second edition appeared in 1998. In 1994 Stermer again returned to free-lance writing. Today, his work regularly appears in Rider, American Rider, Cruising Rider, Powersports Business and V-Twin magazines. His fifth book, BMW R100RS, was published in 2002. This is his sixth book.In addition to writing, Stermer is an accomplished photographer and public speaker. He has appeared many times at the Americade rally in New York and at local club events.Stermer lives in Southern California with his wife Margery and their children, Paul and Julia.
