Classroom Instruction, 8 hrs

Thursday and Friday evenings starting at 6pm

Starting in a classroom, you will be introduced to defensive riding theory. You will learn how to avoid the common mistakes that are made by riders. You will learn where and why accidents occur and what you can do to prevent yourself from becoming involved in one. Through systems like S.l.P.D.E. (Scan, Identify, Predict, Decide, Execute) you will be able to better predict what is going on around you and make sound decisions based on this information.

Parking Lot Training, 13 hrs

Saturday and Sunday starting at 8am – 3:30/4pm both days

A MOTORCYCLE IS INCLUDED IN COST OF COURSE FOR ALL PARKING LOT AND ON-ROAD TRAINING

We start light and easy learning to balance, turn and stop without the use of the motor. As your confidence builds we quickly progress into more challenging exercises over the weekend such as; clutch / throttle control; shifting gears; setting your speed for the turn; emergency braking; braking in a turn and swerving to avoid hazards just to name a few. With careful well paced instruction you will learn to master slow and fast paced maneuvers on a motorcycle.

“I had a lot of fun and learned a lot of tricks and techniques to use towards getting my confidence and competency level up to where I can focus on why I’m riding there verses how to ride there. Northern BC has a lot of back country roads and there is a lot to explore. Many of the resource roads are in various states of disuse and deactivation but the scenery and sense of nowhere-ness is tough to beat anywhere else. I had an awesome time and have a lot of stuff to try and put to practice. At my age practice won’t make perfect anymore but it will make me better.”

“I always wanted to do that sort of practicing but was not confident enough to do so by myself. It was great to have experienced instructors on hand to point out helpful and timely tips/observations.”

“I must say I picked up a lot of useful techniques for riding dirt. Maneuvering your bike by holding on with your knees. Body position on the bike. Head up and looking at the horizon line. I especially liked the turning tight circles lesson. Ascending and descending hills while staying in full control of your bike. You both drove home the lessons and in practice critiqued our short comings. Awesome job guys!!”
