Skills Day

Sharp Rider Motorcycle Training » Skills Day

Skills Day is a day for students to get a chance practice the skills that they learned during Level 1 and/or Level 2 with trained Instructors to give immediate feedback and coach the students to fine-tune their riding skills.

This is done on the Range only (no classroom components) in 2 – ½ Day segments – one 4-hour session the in the morning and another 4-hour session in the afternoon. Sharp Rider Motorcycle Training will provide you with a safe and controlled environment so that you can continue to push outside your comfort zone and continue to sharpen your riding skills.

The first one will be on May 12, 2013. This is to help you get back into the swing of things after that long dreaded winter we have to deal with. The second date is Sept. 28th, 2013 to give you the chance to ride the season and get the tips and feedback from the instructors toward the end of the season. Each day is broken into 2 sessions as outlined below. Cost of the course is $50.00 per session.
