ONLINE THEORY PORTION

In the classroom theory 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 a mandatory quiz 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.

ON LOT PRACTICAL PORTION

While the Intro only course gives you a taste of what motorcycling is, the Full course is comprised of 4 modules. To begin, our first module 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 module 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.

Our third module deals directly with very important brake control skills including trail braking and optimum controlled braking followed by emergency avoidance push steering exercises so you will be able to practice correctly for the years of riding ahead. It also gives you a chance to try a different motorcycle.

If you are deemed ready by our instructors/successfully complete module 3, you will take part in our fourth module which provides you the opportunity to try a few more bikes before taking you on a controlled group ride on Calgary’s streets. The duration of the ride will be dependent on your groups’ skills levels. The goal of the ride is to cover all types of conditions beginning with slow, low-traffic residential routes and works up to major roads.
