Motorcycles are inexpensive to operate, fun to ride and easy to park. Unfortunately, many riders never learn the critical skills needed to ride safely. Motorcycling requires skill, concentration and reasonable precautions. Although it is possible to ride a motorcycle on your own, the trial and error method is a tough teacher of motorcycle skills.
This course is designed to teach experienced riders how to survive riding on our roadways. The course is taught by seasoned, police motorcycle officers that know what it takes to stay safe on a motorcycle!
By attending this course you will learn:
- Effective turning
- Obstacle avoidance
- Braking maneuvers
- Clutch control techniques
- Traffic strategies
- Proper protective equipment
- Motorcycle maintenance
