Scientific Motorcycling

At a recent swapmeet I found this 1974 motorcycle rider skills book by Canadian motorcyclist and dealer Phil Funnell, a name I've never heard of. Although I taught motorcycle training for a period on the 80s, I find it odd this very detailed and useful book was not in the curriculum or even mentioned, possibly bad publicity? The book has a definite homemade appearance, amd contains many hand drawn diagrams used to illustrate the ideas presented. It appears to be based on his personal experiences, by the time he wrote the book, he had already riding for many years.

A quick google reveals he is still making the long distance trips he was known for.  The link in the article doesn't work, this one should. Obviously another motorcycle "character"!

It's even a signed copy!
