Contrary to its title, “How To Ride Off-Road Motorcycles,” Gary LaPlante’s full-color, 176-page instructional guide isn’t just for the dirt set. In fact, when LaPlante, a lifelong rider who has competed in nearly every two-wheel motorized discipline, realized there was a need for “higher-quality, more practical, real-world motorcycle training,” he “began developing his own curriculum and started writing this book.” The resulting 21 chapters are chock-full of on-bike exercises, advice from industry leaders, “Tales from the Trail” and insights gleaned from five decades of riding experience. The $27.99 paperback is food for thought for anyone, regardless of age or on/off-road experience, who would like to become a better motorcyclist. Who among us doesn’t have that on the top of his or her to-do list?
