Now much of his work and wisdom has been compiled into a new book, Proficient Motorcycling , released last year by Bowtie Press. Hough opens the book with a grizzly story of riders who experienced a fatal spill in the mountains of Colorado during a Sunday morning ride.
The story is indelible and a reminder of how important it is to understand your machine, skill level and the probabilities of human nature. The book continues to flow with statistics, more lessons, personal experience, more lessons, more statistics, and more wisdom than you can shake a witching stick at. The content breathes in between riding exercises allowing the reader to pick up and put down the book at random, each time taking something new out to the bike with them. So just how popular is it?

While Hough is best known for his skill articles for two-wheelers, he is one of the few motorcycle journalists in the country with a direct involvement in sidecars and trikes. Several years ago Hough designed and developed a new sidecar training course for novices--a three-wheeled equivalent of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation "Motorcycle RiderCourse".
Dave subsequently became the President of the Side Car Safety program , which administered three-wheeler training and sidecar instructor training courses until the start of when the Evergreen Safety Council Seattle purchased the rights to the SSP courses and books. The Sidecar Safety Program continues as a volunteer, non-profit corporation, serving in an advisory capacity.
