Ride Forever - Cruiser

The Ride Forever Cruiser course is designed for experienced riders, and includes a flexible programme of content modules. It includes more technical aspects of riding, and allows for a more focussed approach to training by enabling a club/rider to build their own course content, where specific riding styles can be incorporated.

Description

The Ride Forever Cruiser course is for experienced riders, who are likely to be riding mid - larger capacity machines. 

Courses are run in small groups, up to 6 trainees to 1 instructor.

Across the training day, this allows for individual tuition and feedback to help each rider improve.

Courses are mostly riding – you may cover a distance of around 100km during the day.

The first part of the day includes introductions and some discussion, so as soon as you start riding you have some additional knowledge and skills to put into practise.

Topics May Include:

  • Pre-ride checks for your bike
  • Safety gear
  • Riding in a group/longer rides/touring
  • Riding with a pillion/loads
  • Setting up your motorcycle for performance and comfort
  • Observation techniques
  • Interaction with other road users
  • Motorcycle control – slow manoeuvring, emergency braking, counter-steering
  • Roadcraft principles
  • Road positioning
  • Cornering
