Objective:

Enjoy the thrill of the ride!

Increase your skills, confidence and enjoyment of road riding with a mix of interactive theory and practical riding, in a relaxed low-pressure environment, at a closed road venue.

This course is designed for riders with a motorcycle license, who are currently riding on the road.

It has been shown that at some point a rider (through someone else's fault or their own!) will find themselves in a situation where they need to immediately demonstrate the skills needed to stay upright. These skills are much more than simply riding the bike! Find out how good you really are! Managing risk and avoiding crashes depends on your thinking and riding skills, so the more skills you have, the better rider you’ll be and the more fun you will have!
