What to read?

Since I'm new to dirt riding after riding on pavement for the last 20 years, I'd like to do some reading on dual sport technique. What books, articles and websites do you all recommend?

Watch this:

http://dualsportriding.com/shop/inde...&products_id=4

then practice.

then watch this:

then practice some more.

I've found the Shane Watts stuff good (plus he's an Aussie ), but he is more for Enduro etc.

Maybe attend a school local to you.

Then Practice, Practice, Practice.

Read this website and spend the money. Ask around,it's the way to learn how to control a motorcycle in adverse conditions.
