About the author
Keith Code has been described by America's Rider magazine as "arguably the best known and most successful on-track motorcycle instructor in the world. Riders who have been trained either at his schools or by him personally have won upwards of 50 world and national racing championships, and include Leon Camier British Supersport and 2009 Superbike Champion. Keith got hooked on motorcycles when he was just twelve years old, after hearing a recording of the 1957 Isle of Man TT Golden Jubilee races. He first raced in the 60's at age 16, again in the 70's, 80's and 90's. He went to design school; was a photographer; designed and manufactured shoes for the stars; sold pretzels on the street; was a full on drug addict in the 60's; cleaned up with Dianetics; became a writer, inventor and dedicated himself to understanding and teaching the art of riding motorcycles. He was the first person to put words to roadracing and riding, and his research continues today. Keith founded the California Superbike School in 1980, the first rider training school to develop a step by step rider training curriculum. His teachings have spread all over the world with the California Superbike School operating at over 90 tracks in more than 15 countries and training more than 150,000 riders. Keith has written three books about sportbike riding and racing techniques as well as two feature length movies covering his books, "A Twist of the Wrist" and "A Twist of the Wrist II". His works have been translated into Russian, German, Estonian, Greek, Spanish, Japanese, Polish, Turkish, Mandarin Chinese, French, Italian and Dutch. He has produced two full-length feature films based his books. Motorcyclist Magazine named him Motorcyclist of the Year for his contributions to motorcycle training. Keith lives in Glendale, California with his soul mate of 50 years, Judy. He has one son, Dylan
