No-one can ride perfectly all the time. Everyone makes mistakes.
What is Advanced Riding?
Advanced Riding is a “deliberate, skillful and responsible riding technique”. It gives you the ability to anticipate the actions of others, and control of the situation. That control means that the rider will always be in the correct position with the correct speed and in the correct gear.
When you commence learning about Advanced Riding, you will learn using “The System of Motorcycle Control” (The System) for short.
The benefits of an Advanced Riding Technique, will be that you will enjoy a safer ride, less risk of a crash, better fuel consumption, less wear and tear on your bike.
In order to get the best benefit from Advanced Rider Training, it is suggested that you should be riding a motorbike with a minimum of 400cc. This means that you and your bike can comfortably negotiate national speed limits, without being too underpowered.
This Advanced Riding Course is aimed at those who have a full licence, and wish to learn the essential skills required to ride safely, and who will die of old age.
It is designed to take the rider to a level that he/she could sit and pass the Advanced Motorcycle Test conducted by the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM). This is the highest award for a civilian rider in New Zealand.
This course is run on a one to one basis, with 2 or 3 hour blocks of training, as well as home study, and practical practice sessions.
Minimum course time for this course is normally 8 hours, but this will be dictated by the amount of practice that you can squeeze in between our training sessions.
Why don’t you discover how much more pleasure you will get from your bike, and learn the essential skills to stay alive longe.
