COURSE INFORMATION:

CLASSROOM PORTION:

In the classroom instruction portion students are introduced to some of the controls of the motorcycle, and some of the theory behind their operation. Also discussed are some topics like how to choose the right motorcycle for you, safety equipment, as well as road, traffic and weather hazards.

Perhaps the greatest emphasis is placed on the importance of rider attitude.

Our classroom section concludes with an exam covering all topics discussed. The classroom is also the best place to have questions answered on a wide range of subjects as the on-bike portion of the course is devoted mainly to riding.

Our classroom is located at the Dalhousie Community Centre.

MOTORCYCLE PORTION:

To begin, our first section of the course is focused on the absolute basics: getting on and off the bike, pushing the bike, parking it, starting up and shutting down the engine. Following this we cover moving off and stopping, slow-speed riding and shifting up and down.

Our second section is done using exercises which make up the foundation of operating a motorcycle. You will learn techniques needed to maneuver the bike at slow and intermediate speeds with an emphasis on smooth machine control.

The third section is similar to Police and EMS training where we use the same techniques to help with bike control in emergencies and the decision-making process needed in these situations. You are taught collision avoidance, controlled optimum braking and trail braking during this section and are given time to practice and reinforce those skills.

If you are deemed ready by our instructors, you will take part in our fourth section which takes you on a controlled group ride with your classmates and instructors. The duration of the ride will be dependent on the groups’ skills levels. The ride tries to cover all types of conditions beginning with slow, low-traffic residential routes and works up to major roads.

The on-bike training is located at the South East parking lot of McMahon Stadium.
