Course Description

SUNDAY, Sept 10, 2017
9:00- 4:00

The course features demonstrations and drills to learn and refine advanced body positioning, shifting, braking, throttle and cornering skills. We may also do some slow-maneuver practice. A cone course will allow you to put these techniques into practice.

This course to the Rhode Island MSF instructors, the New England Riders and the Sisters’ Centennial Ride participants. It was a big hit.

This course is for all levels of experienced riders with at least 2,000 miles under their belt. This is not for brand new riders. New riders should sign up for a basic rider course with their state motorcycle safety program

What to Expect

The morning will include coaching and practice.

We will break for an hour lunch. Students should bring lunch and plenty to drink.
