This one day training course is offered free to the community as a public service. Each class is capped at 25 riders so that everyone participating has the chance to thoroughly learn the skills being taught. Those skills are broken up into two main components, each emphasizing different aspects of riding.
The course begins with low speed handling and maneuvering of the motorcycle and gradually moves up to higher speed emergency braking, counter-steering, obstacle avoidance and curve negotiation. Ninety-five percent of the class is hands on instruction with skills taught and demonstrated by our motors, but then actually performed in a controlled manner by the students. We have taught all types of riders, men and women, as young as 16 and as old as their late 70’s, from fairly novice riders to riders with 40 years’ experience. After hosting seven courses, we can honestly say no one has ridden away from our course without seeing a clear improvement in their riding.
