The Advanced Street Skills event gives riders the knowledge and ability to read their riding environment, improve cornering skills, and better negotiate proper entry and exit speeds. This is not a safety course, but by helping motorcyclists become better riders they ultimately become safer riders. All of the lessons and drills relate directly to riding on public roads whether for sport, touring, or just for cruising.
The drills and lessons taught were created to combat the most common reasons for motorcycle crashes and fatalities. The Advanced Street Skills event provides motorcyclists with the tools to better manage their speed (when, where, and how much) and improve their cornering skills. All of this is done in a controlled environment with small pods of riders spread over a 2.25+ mile road course!
Here in the Pacific Northwest and along the west coast, recent motorcycle crash research is showing that the majority of single vehicle fatalities are the fault of the motorcyclist. One of the leading causes is 'lane errors' (examples are running wide in corners and colliding with trees, cars, guardrails) which is directly addressed through the Advanced Street Skills.
This is not a course for aspiring racers, rather it is for riders that prefer to spend their time riding in the mountains, down the coast or are just looking to become safer by improving their cornering skills. There are no special bike requirements or restrictions, no need to tape over lights or remove turn signals, you will ride what you ride every day. Come join us and learn what S-M-A-R-T cornering is all about.
