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.

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.

 

 Here’s What You Can Expect in Bike Bonding Class

2 hours of guided skills practice in:

  • Stopping quickly
  • Navigating multiple curves
  • Controlling the friction zone in everyday riding
  • Completing correct turns from a stop
  • Proper Search Evaluate and Execute procedures
  • and more 

The Bike Bonding Class does not meet the “no test at the Driver’s License Office” requirement.  Riders must have participated in a Basic Rider Class and show that completion card.

    hello, I got my mc license 5yrs ago, I had a mc accident 3weeks after I bought my bike. I just bought a new mc and I am still a little apprehensive on riding even though I really want to get back on it. I was wondering if this is the right class for me or should I take the basic course again? I took the” learn to ride” class at alef’s Harley Davidson 5 years ago.
    thanks.

      Julie,
      First, let me say I’m glad you came through your accident and you’re ready to get back on a bike. Accidents can be scary for sure and it take courage to get back in the saddle so kuddos to you. If you still have your license you can do the bike bonding class. You’ll use your bike and the class is two hours of practice on those basic skills. If you let your endorsement go, or you are pretty nervous, the basic class would be a good way to go. You’ll get extra time on the bike and you’ll have an opportunity to build your confidence back and practice those skills that will help you avoid an accident. Please give me a call and I’ll be happy to visit with you about it further.
