Defensive Riding Course
This is a 4 hour, advanced course that will better prepare riders to anticipate hazardous road situations and react to them quickly, safely, and effectively. This program will incorporate techniques learned and mastered by police motor officers and will improve the riding abilities of even the most seasoned operator.
At the end of the course, participants will receive a completion certificate as well as a refined skill set and newfound confidence. Some of the exercises practiced in this course include; Straight Line Braking, Braking in a Curve, Rear-End Collision Avoidance, 30-MPH Weave, Evasive Maneuver, and more!
This course is intended for experienced motorcycle riders, who have a firm grasp of the basic skills of operating a motorcycle, but desire to become a better, safer, and more confident rider. This is a challenging course, so riders must have physical stamina to withstand a full day on the range.
