Experienced Rider Training
The Experienced Rider Training course is a skills improvement course designed to help experienced riders enhance their everyday street riding. Our instructors will work closely with you and your bike to ensure you are getting the best riding experience that suits your needs (i.e... enjoyment, commuting, long distance traveling, etc).
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. The riding portion begins with a technical inspection of your bike's brakes, suspension, tires and general condition (to ensure that it will be safe for the riding session) and consists of approximately six hours of riding and coaching on a variety of topics.

- Riders who are completely comfortable with their motorcycle and have reached the limit of what they can teach themselves
