  • Riding Man book (and other bike/car books?)

    Wes (my kid) is reading a bunch. He asked me to recommend some bike/car books. I recommended Fast Guys Rich Guys and Idiots, Drive Like Hell, Ring of Fire, he just finished The Art of Racing in the Rain... As i was thinking of books i remembered Riding Man, but it took me a day to remember the name. Id recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it. Its about a guys first trip to race IOMTT.

    Anyone have any other recommendations?

    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

    Burt Levy has a bunch of books that might be good, starting with The Last Open Road - very kid friendly, but I enjoyed reading them as an adult.

      Any book by Mat Oxley - Stealing speed was a good one.

          "First Family of Racing" is pretty good. You can't read it without hearing Earl Hayden's voice.
