ProRider 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 even the most seasoned operator. At the end the course, participants will receive a completion certificate as well as a refined skill set and new found confidence. Some of the exercises practiced in this course include: Straight line braking, braking in a curve, rear-end crash avoidance, 30 MPH weave, swerving, and more!
In Our Class, Riders Will…
- “Bond” with their personal motorcycles and familiarize with the bike’s full capabilities and limitations
- Learn and practice low-speed techniques that are perfect for those pesky parking lots and tight turnarounds (…and when you want to impress your friends, or passenger).
- Practice braking, evasive maneuvers, and hazard avoidance exercises that may save your ride and your hide from serious damage, injury or death.
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 challenging half day on the range.
