View Full Version : Taranaki: Motorcycle Rider Improvement Day - Sunday 20 November 2011

We have another Rider Training Day coming up on Sunday 20 November.

Places are already filling fast, so if you want to come along, send through an email to the address on the flyer and you will be sent a registration form.

This time we will be having a women's only group also.

The following is an extract from a previous thread for our September day held a few weeks ago:

"On the track we will be going over braking, counter-steering, cornering. The kart track is not conducive to high speeds, so it is more about technique.

The riders will be split into groups: two will be on the track, one group will be covering theory in the 'classroom' and one going over maintenance, bike set up etc. After one hour the groups not on the track switch.
After two hours (from the start), the groups on the track move off track, while the two groups that have been doing the theory, move out to the track.

The instructors all have a wealth of experience, both individually and collectively.
Three of them are 'I' endorsed, one is an assessor for IAM, one has been running similar training days for 15+ years.
More importantly there are all passionate about rider training and have excellent delivery techniques that cater to all experience levels - this is not a dictorial session, more an informative approach to heighten rider awareness of the skills and issues that face riders every time they venture out.

The afternoon concludes with a road ride. Along the way we will stop at different points and discuss the hazards that are/could be present.

The whole day is about getting feedback from the attendees about what their views/issues/weaknesses/strengths are and discussing these with the rest of the group.
This way more experienced riders get to share their knowledge, less experienced riders get to ask questions, with the trainers explaining the theory behind the knowledge."
