Ride School is open to all members at zero cost. This event is held over two Sundays in the Spring and is intended to reinforce ‘The System’ and Motorcycle Roadcraft whilst hopefully being insightful and informative in an informal jovial couple of days.
This is the first session of two. Details for Part 2 can be viewed here
Welcome from 9am for a prompt start at 9:30am
- The System
- Bends and Positioning
Ever had to react to a situation suddenly? You’ll learn the details of the renowned Police System to ensure that you always have the breathing space to tackle the hazards every biker faces. The System was developed to reduce Police rider accidents in pursuit riding situations; before the System, the accident rate of police drivers and riders was one every 7,000 miles. Since the introduction of “the System” that dropped to one every 70,000 miles.
Bends and Positioning – applying the system of motorcycle control.
How safely are you keeping away from likely hazards? How far ahead can you spot what’s going on? Positioning directly affects both. In week 1, you’ll learn how to use your positioning to be more stable when cornering, ride safer and see further ahead. You will also learn about ‘observation links’ and other tricks of the trade. How stable is your bike when cornering?
We are also pleased to confirm that HELITE will be attending in the afternoon from circa 2:30pm to answer any queries and assist you in fitting prior to any order.
Light Lunch and Refreshments are provided
