Final thoughts on MotoX books

While your first stop for good motocross & pit bike books might be amazon.com, they are not always competitively priced.

Auction sites sometimes give better value and more variety. An author with a reputation are the books and manuals you need to have at the top of your shopping list.

Everyone seems to have advice today, and that’s ok to a point. But nothing is like reading from a professionals own perspective.

Those riders that have been there and bought the tee-shirt.

Books like that will never lose their appeal.
