Ed's second “How to" book

 

"The Complete Anthology of Motorcycle Road Racing Lines" is the first of its kind.  It was written by a motorcyclist for motorcyclists.  With today's large influx of motorcycle track days around the country, there was a need for good information about motorcycle racing and or track day lines. 

 

"The Complete Anthology of Motorcycle Road Racing Lines" is the only book currently being published that is dedicated to the complete study of motorcycle race track lines. 

 

"The Complete Anthology of Motorcycle Road Racing Lines" is a collection of all the different types of lines for all the different types of turns commonly found on road courses today.   Each type of turn will have numerous types of lines for it.  Each of the optional lines for each type of turn will have its own advantages and trade-offs.  Even the size of the motorcycle will have an effect on which line is a better choice for a specific turn.   Most of these variables are explored in this book.  With knowledge of all the different line variations, the rider can easily determine which line is best for which corner.

"BreakingThe Myths" is a debunking of the most common myths and misunderstandingsabout motorcycle operation. Some of the myths covered are the function of bodyposition/posture, gyroscopic forces, footpeg weighting just to name a few. 
 
Motorcycles must always obey the known laws of physics no matter how logical an incorrect theory sounds. There is an ample use of diagrams to easily visualize the dynamics being discussed.  
 
Another common problem is the use of incorrect terms and analogies which have no bearing on the dynamic being discussed. Some of these misused terms and analogies are covered.

"Feature of Race Track Design"  was written by Ed Bargy with well over five decades experience in the motor racing field. Ed’s first exposure to the race track was NASCAR dirt oval racing in upstate NY at the age of 9. Ed started motorcycle road racing in the sixties while stationed in the UK with the USAF. Ed has gone on to hold every position in the motorcycle road racing sport from a national level racer to senior national race official, race promoter and racing school founder/owner.

Ed has seen firsthand what works and what does not work on the race track. Most road courses of today were primarily designed for automobile racing. The needs of the motorcycle road racer areseldom taken into account.

A track can be designed to be totally safe for autos and still be extremely deadly for bike riders. Where, if a track is designed to be safe for bikes, it will also be totally safe for cars.

"The Real Hanger"

TEMPORARY OUT OF STOCK

 

"The Real Hanger"is the first hanger designed to be strong enough for a full set of motorcycle racing leathers and yourThe Real Hanger helmet.  It has enough strength in reserve to hold a fully rain soaked racing suit.  It is made in the USA of solid one piece wood with a strong metal hook, no plastic anywhere.   

 

“The Real Hanger” has been tested to over 150lbs hanging weight.  It was originally designed by Ed Bargy in1990 to hold up all of his rental leathers in the trailer.  Because the bouncing around of the trailer on the bumpy roads of today, hangers are subjected to a tremendous amount of force during transit. All of the available hangers, on the market at that time, would either break or just bend  and let the leathers end up on the floor.  Even the plastic hangers that are marketed for leathers will tend to snap under the weight of a racing suit when the weather turns

cold.

 

"The Real Hanger” Has been designed with the heaviest duty steel hook of any hanger on the market today.  The solid wood base has a durable, high gloss, double hand dipped  polyurethane finish.

 

"The Real Hanger”  Will eliminate finding your leathers in a heap onthe dirty and/or wet floor of your trailer, becauseHOLDS YOUR HELMET TOO !! that plastic hanger broke during transit.  Even the wooden hangers for a man's business suit, are made from several pieces of wood GLUED together and are just not strong enough for your expensive and heavy racing suit.

 

Hanging your leathers up, so they can air out and dry, is better than just wadding them up in an athletic bag.

 

"The Real Hanger" is designed to support the leathers under the shoulder pads to spread the weight.  This eliminates stretching of the collar/neck of the suit.

 

"The Real Hanger” just  makes sense, and it is cheap!

    "You break it, I'll replace it."  Guaranteed
