Total Control is not the first book on high-performance riding skills, but it actually delivers on what others can only promise: To significantly improve your ability to control any motorcycle. Based on the proven techniques of national champion Lee Parks′ critically acclaimed Advanced Riding Clinics, this book is the fastest and safest way to gain mastery over your machine.
Written in a clear, understandable style, Parks demystifies the techniques used by top racers and demonstrates how to apply them to high-performance street riding, no matter what kind of bike you ride. And for the first time anywhere in print, Parks explains the mental dynamics of fear and his remarkable process for overcoming the single biggest hindrance to learning new skills.
Raised in a family of professional educators, Parks’ revolutionary approach to riding is based on a superior teaching methodology as much as the techniques themselves. By breaking down the skills into small, easily learned modules in a building block format, the result is the most effective riding technology ever developed.
Total Control is the must-have book for sport, touring and cruiser riders who want to take their riding to the next level in the shortest amount of time without taking unnecessary risks.

Total Control by Lee Parks is an excellent book about street riding. Chapter 8, Line Selection is worth the price of the book alone. If you have ever wondered about Delayed Turn Point or Delayed Apex--this is the book to explain it to you. This is how racers ride, it is the most efficient way through any curve.
My street riding skills are easily 100% better as a result of just reading this book and practicing the techniques. I used to think that something was wrong with my bike in high-speed curves because it would seemingly wallow through the curve. The real problem was that I was Fifty-pencing through the curve. I don't have that problem anymore and it makes me much more confident when I ride. I have been riding for years (first bike at age 9) but no one ever explained this to me and you will not figure it out on you're on. Or you might, but it will take years because this technique is not intuitive. Trust me.
