Motorcycle Mentor Training (MMT)

The Motorcycle Mentor Training (MMT) is a series of advanced courses to create subject matter experts (SME) in motorcycle accident prevention by generating behavior modification that can be modeled and taught to high-risk riders. This is accomplished through hands-on development of awareness of abilities, limitations, knowledge and riding mastery of the motorcycle on both closed-course and on-road training environments. Primary focus is on real-world application of elements that account for the vast majority of all motorcycle accidents and fatalities; these include real-world braking, cornering, and application of effective street strategies.

The researched-based MMT curricula incorporates localized crash and fatality trends and causal factors, lessons learned (from a decade of MMT project implementation), and feedback from military and ARSOF participants who prioritized the most impactful training as being: (i) on-road training, (ii) night-ride training, (iii) maximum/threshold braking at realistic speeds, and (iv) strategic and personalized photo/video review.

Research indicates nearly all motorcycle crashes and fatalities are avoidable. Research also indicates traditional parking-lot based training fails to adequately reduce crashes and fatalities beyond the novice rider. When compared with other U.S. based motorcycle training, only the MMT compliments closed-course parking lot instruction with expert-level coaching and peer-to-peer mentoring in real-world on-road environments. Mentors are trained to effectively influence riders and the elusive ‘ghost riders’ within their command. The MMT influences riders to make lifelong behavior modifications by enabling personal awareness of abilities, limitations, risky habits, knowledge and motorcycle dynamics.

MMT Goals:

  1. Positively alter rider behavior and traffic habits
  2. Enable positive rider influence and mentoring
  3. Inspire constructive perception change of traditional training models
  4. Train Mentors beyond "instructor" level of knowledge

MMT Emphasis:

  • Comprehensive training program designed to create highly-skilled mentors to influence high-risk riders
  • Goals and techniques identified in response to higher ratios of motorcycle fatalities within USASOC (2009) compared to the regular Army.  Redeveloped in 2016 for all branches of the U.S. Military
  • Techniques and strategies identified for military mentors
  • Adaptive research-based training curriculum
  • Addressing issues with traditional training:
    • Current performance standards below other road users
    • Limited by location (parking lots, low speed)
    • Unrealistic training environment (low speed, low value)
    • Not adequately educating riders to understand/own personal ability (measured) or continued education needs
    • Myths and misinformation perpetuated by untrained mentors
  • Facilitation of a variety of training methods:
    • "Experiential Attachment" learning methods to change behaviors
      • Memory and learning are most concrete when coupled with strong emotion
      • Permanent learning takes place by attaching an experience to a recent impactful experience
      • Action and consequences are reinforced by cognitive and reflective experiences
    • Video and photo-support, after action reviews and coaching
    • Two-way radio for in-flight coaching
    • Utilizing mentors as training tools (technology)
    • Linking to current/recent training (gunnery, land nav, composite risk management, NTC/JRTC)
    • Traditional and non-traditional classroom activities
    • Closed-Course and On-Road and/or On-Track training
    • On-Road
    • Roadside learning sessions (Day and Night)
    • Research-based coaching
