Larry Grodsky devoted his life to motorcycle safety. Through the riding courses he taught and his "Stayin' Safe" columns in Rider magazine (from 1988 until his untimely death in 2006), he helped thousands of motorcyclists improve their skills and their ability to ride really well. This collection of Grodsky's columns reveals his ability to illuminate complex and sometimes highly technical subjects with an entertaining and personal style, spiced with his trademark wry wit and keen observations of human behavior.

“The Manual of Motorcycling Safety” is a guide to the safe use of motorcycles on the road. It is aimed at all motorcyclists – beginners and experts – to whom it illustrates with clarity of exposition, breadth of content and pictures the dangers of the road, motorcycles’ characteristics and equipment, riding techniques and the strategy for becoming involved in traffic with complete safety. The book was inspired by a similar guides published in the U.S.A. that enjoyed considerable success, and is the first of its kind in Italy. Road safety is a much discussed subject among Italian motorcyclists, of whom there are around five million, and it is for that reason that this book is an attempt not only to fill a gap but to also become a true hand book on the basis of which to ride a motorbike in complete safety.
Enzo Lazzarini tells of the early years of the adventure that took his brother Eugenio to a glittering racing career, winning three world titles, eight second places and four Italian championships. A major undertaking that began after Enzo’s career was suddenly halted by a dramatic accident that completely changed his life. An iron will, a tremendous desire to live and an ability to work beyond the imaginable. Qualities that enabled Enzo and Eugenio to open a concessionaire by day that was transformed into a workshop by night, from which emerged the prodigious Lazzarini/Piovaticci 125 single cylinders at first and the surprising Piovaticci twin-cylinder 250 soon afterwards. Financial problems and technical difficulties were faced with a healthy “craziness”, step-by-step, without stopping for a second until they achieved a splendid victory in the 125 cc class of the 1973 Grand Prix of Holland. In the midst of pain, worries, preoccupations, doubts, disappointments and torment there was also joy, the successes and conquests of a man who, today, has become a successful businessman. Demonstrating that with the right will and strength of character nothing is impossible.
