Yes, I had some time on my hands and decided to write a short book for beginning riders. It's also intended for returning riders who put motorcycling on hold until their families were raised.
Originally, the book was available only in a Kindle edition. Now it's also available in paperback.
If you prefer the Kindle (electronic) edition, you don't even have to own a Kindle reading device to buy or read the book from Amazon. You can download an app from Amazon for your iPhone, Windows PC, Mac, Blackberry, iPad, Android cellphone or tablet, or Windows Phone 7 that takes the place of the Kindle reading device.

What's the Price?
The paperback price is $8.09 (slightly less if you're an Amazon Prime customer). The Kindle edition is only $2.99. And, if you buy the paperback, you have the option of getting the Kindle edition FREE.
What's the Book Contain?
This book is based on original articles I wrote and published while I was the Motorcycles Guide on About.com and also during my current assignment as Editor of Motorcycle Views.
It provides introductory motorcycling information for new riders to help push them into being safer riders. It's also intended for returning riders who have been away from motorcycling for many years. Hey guys and gals, motorcycling isn't what it used to be.
The reader will learn how to get into motorcycling using all the proper steps to ensure that he or she will be well trained and be acquainted with the technical aspects of motorcycles.
I'm trying to reach out to riders and present them with a core set of motorcycling information that may help them to survive on the road. Perhaps some readers who are also riding motorcycles, will want to take this book along with them for reference—whatever it takes to decrease the likelihood of accidents by untrained riders.
The 13 chapters are:

Since motorcycle safety means so much to me, I have spent a lot of time discussing safety. I want you to be as safe as you can be when you ride. Often that just means taking a basic Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) rider course over a weekend, understanding how to be safe, and knowing your limits. But there is much more to learning to be safe.
No course can guarantee that you'll have no accidents. Bear in mind that most riders don't even know the basics contained in this book. My hope is that wide distribution of a few basic principles of how to be safe on a motorcycle would go a long way to reducing motorcycle accidents. This book will help.
