Roadcraft / Defensive Course
If you're looking to further develop your riding skills and gain a greater appreciation for you and your motorcycle's capabilities, look no further than the Roadcraft / Defensive riding Course from The Motorcycle Riding School.
Our Roadcraft Course examines the art of being smooth, correct cornering and braking for the road on a closed course circuit, breaking it down into its components and teaching how best to apply steering, peg pressure, clutch and throttle inputs; along with body posture, bike position and riding line to name a few.
As a rider, you'll know that the environment plays a significant part in riding, especially cornering. You'll learn how best to assess the road condition, vanishing points camber, elevation.
As a rider, you'll know that sometimes things don't go to plan; so to be as prepared as possible, we've incorporated a section to Defensive Riding.
You'll learn the Rider-Bike-Terrain model; three key elements that intersect to form an ideal riding scenario. You'll learn how to best handle a scenario where one or more of those factors aren't up to par, like when a corner (terrain) is interrupted by an obstacle, spill or other road users. We highlight riding to your abilities, reaction times, over / under-reacting, in a fun, supportive and informative environment.
