Bike Bonding Class
Build on your new skills and get ready for the road.
Everyone knows it takes quite a while to get to know your bike. Whether you recently received your Motorcycle endorsement, or you acquired a “new to you” bike, it pays to practice your skills.
Riding with confidence and awareness makes you less vulnerable. The Best Bikers constantly hone their skills. The open road offers a freedom like none other. Along with that freedom, though, comes a plethora of people paying very little attention to their surroundings and paying even less attention to you.
The road constantly changes too. From sand piles built on the exact corner you’re turning on, to dirt clods and tar clumped all over the only lane open, to the pavement that just morphed into a slipper slide in a Kansas downpour; the road warrants preparation for anything.
You need your brain engaging immediately, picking the best response, no matter what the byways bring your way. That happens only when you have practiced and more importantly practiced recently. When you’re on your bike, any decision can be life or death. Practicing often and in the near past helps ensures that you are ready with the best response in any given situation. In fact studies show the more recent your last practice, the better the odds are that you’ll respond appropriately.
Skimping on skills
Statistically 75% of accidents occur between a bike and a vehicle. Two -thirds of the time, the other vehicle violated the motorcycles right of way.
THEY AREN’T PAYING ATTENTION TO YOU !
In fully two-thirds of the 25% of accidents involving the bike only, biker error precipitated the accident.
Do you know what that means? At least 25% of accidents can be avoided entirely and many of the remaining 75% can be mitigated by honing your skills and knowing what to do and when to do it.
Knowing your bike and how it handles and perpetually practicing your skills gives you an advantage in avoiding accidents.
Bike Bonding is designed specifically for students who have completed our Basic Rider Course or riders who have a “new to you” bike and want to acclimate to and practice their newly acquired skills on their own bike.
