Turn your next ride into the best adventure possible by adding new skills to your abilities.
The procedures for riding a sport bike do not vary greatly from the procedures for riding other types of motorcycles. But the techniques some riders use are different. For example, putting the balls of the feet on footrests or using leg pressure for control. These techniques depend somewhat on the specific motorcycle as well as the talent and skill level of a rider. Most riders appreciate the outstanding performance and handling characteristics provided by the design and technology incorporated into their bikes. The techniques used in performance oriented riding can be used to enhance the skill, technique, and safety margin for riders of any type of motorcycle.
In the classroom, you with start with a self-evaluation, which you will have an opportunity to revisit after your range activities. The course moves into Cornering, then Braking, followed by Swerving, Safety & Risk, Perception, Rider Behavior and Risk Offset modules. The riding techniques are not intended to encourage or endorse riding at higher speeds, but are provided to improve the performance capabilities of riders, particularly related to overall control, cornering, safety margin reserve and emergency maneuvers.
The overall aim is to provide rider development in the areas of risk management, decision-making, riding strategies, and rider behavior and choices. This includes learner activities to foster gains in knowledge, skill, attitude, values and habits.
