  • What will I be doing on the safety course?

1st Day on the course
All students begin at the same level, learning to walk the motorcycle and get used to the feel of
maneuvering a motorcycle around. Balance, brakes and looking ahead are important aspects of safety
and are learned on an unpowered moving motorcycle. There’s a bit of pushing involved here. Students
learn how to start up and shut down the motorcycle engines. Next step is moving into first gear. This
means learning about the clutch and its friction zone. A lot of attention is paid to this step. Students
must grasp the understanding of smoothly transferring power to the rear wheel with the clutch. They do
this by practicing riding slowly and smoothly by keeping the clutch in the friction zone. This exercise is
the key to being able to handle a motorcycle at lower speeds such as in a parking lot or in rush hour
traffic. The lessons progress step by step with students moving away from “stop”, accelerating in first
gear, completing circles and right and left-hand turns. The focus is always on good clutch control,
looking where you want to go, smooth progressive braking and shoulder checks. Each lesson is
facilitated through discussion and demonstrated throughout the course. Questions from the students
are always encouraged.

2nd Day on the course
The morning of the second day is devoted to traffic awareness and defensive riding techniques. A great
deal of attention is paid to potential emergency situations. Straight line braking, swerving around an
object, swerve and stop and stopping in a curve are practiced for the first part of the day. The students
are given practice time.
