Riding motorcycles is fun but Ken Condon maintains there is a state of being beyond the simple pleasure of rolling down the road, this book was written to help other riders find that state of being.

I didn't like feeling vulnerable, so I started improving my riding skill and learning
strategies for survival to reduce anxiety and prevent any future pain and repair
expense. This began my long journey toward being the best rider I can be. In
addition to my 40 years on two wheels, I also have 20 years of experience as a
certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation instructor/ coach, 15 years as a track day
instructor, and 3 years as owner of “Riding in the Zone Motorcyclist Training,”
where I offer ...

This place is called the zone. You can probably recall a time when your riding felt
effortless and automatic, when you were totally immersed in your ride, and
everything seemed to happen naturally and fall into place. Likewise, you can also
likely recall a time when you felt just the opposite, when everything seemed to fall
apart at the seams. You couldn't get into a flow and the harder you tried, the
harder it got. The difference between these two rides is that you felt in the zone in
the first ...

This means that at the start of the season, you may be riding along in heart rate
zone 2 and at the same time be in power zone 2. But later in the season, when
your fitness is greater, you may still be in heart rate zone 2 while riding in power
zone 3. This shifting of power relative to heart rate presents a unique opportunity
to measure change in aerobic fitness. If your power increases at any aerobic
intensity (below your lactate threshold), that is certainly a good thing. It means
you can ...

Just as you don't have to think how to breathe or how to beat your own heart or
even walk, when riding in the zone, the correct inputs will happen as a matter of
natural course. In this state, all your awareness is spent on what to react to, not
how to react. Awareness is the process of information integration; it's your ability
to discern the key elements of information on the fly based on a much larger pool
of incoming data. Any given riding situation requires a specific amount of
awareness to ...

He reminds me that the good time is now, that we're together riding in the last
light of day, and the air is filled with the exhale of flowers and the earth is green
and moist. I feel such tenderness towards him, as he approaches his fiftieth
birthday, protective of the child in him, the unborn thing, that comes to life within
the kisses of my mouth, until he is a man and takes me, and dies the most familiar
little death. I know now why this birthday hurts him, as if the years have not
amounted to ...

Yet one man has ridden over the bumps and statistics that would have had him
riding in the great TT in the sky long before now. John McGuinness, who became
the first man to lap the track at an average of over 130mph, has won 23 races at
the event. And counting. And, yes, his success owes much to starting young – in
his case getting his first taste of riding aged just three courtesy of his father who
ran a motorbike shop in the UK town of Morecambe. Just as Dan Wheldon
developed ...

The Air Force had a couple of centrifuges, and riding in them had become more
common as we tried to figure out how to deal with modern, 9-g airplanes. Such
training was not yet universal in the fighter community, a situation I resolved to
correct, at least in Twelfth Air Force. To establish priorities, I asked for a computer
run to identify fighter pilots who were tall, slender, and had not ridden in the
centrifuge. My own name appeared high on this list. I reported to the centrifuge,
located at ...

The mirror offers less consolation or hope in "Mirror Image" (2/60), another study
of the loss-of-identity theme that permeates The Twilight Zone (Zicree 107).
Twenty-five-year-old Millicent Barnes is the sole possessor of an outlandish truth.
Others find her delusional or mad; at times, like Robert Wilson of "Nightmare at
20,000 Feet," she questions her own sanity. She also resembles Wilson by being
in transit. But rather than riding in an airplane, she is sitting in a bus terminal in
upstate ...

In particular, she wrote, “the kinds of exercise or movement that seem to be
relevant to ecstasy are two: regular rhythmical movement such as walking,
jogging along on a horse, riding in a carriage, etc.; and swift movement, such as
running, flying, galloping.” (273: p. 198) Almost all risk sports involve regularity or
swiftness of motion, and these are sports in which euphoria and ecstasy are
frequently experienced. Ian Jackson tells about his first experience of surfing: “I
