Experienced Rider Training

The 8-hour Experienced Rider Training program is a motorcycle rider improvement course for active riders wanting to advance their ability to skillfully handle and maneuver their bikes. Knowledgeable instructors work closely with participants on their own motorcycles to ensure development at their targeted pace and comfort level.


Course Description:
The program is approximately 8 hours in length and is held on a Saturday or Sunday. It is taught to a small group of riders by two or three trained instructors which means you are provided with focused attention.
The classroom portion consists of an interactive lecture and discussion about riding techniques, limits and risks.
Participants receive approximately six hours of practical riding and coaching on a variety of topics.
The practical portion begins with a technical inspection of your bike's brakes, suspension, tires and general condition (to ensure it will be safe for the riding session).
