Total Control Level 1

Sharp Rider Motorcycle Training » Total Control Level 1

In today’s age of high-horsepower superbikes, large-displacement cruisers, and super-heavy-weight tourers, riding skills are more important than ever for safe, fun motorcycling.

Unfortunately for experienced riders, there is a large gap between the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Experienced Rider Course (ERC) and the many racetrack schools around the country.  Many riders are interested in improving their skills but are unwilling to take on the additional risks associated with a high-speed environment.  If you fit into the “I’m interested, but” group, you’re not alone.  In fact, if you add up all the attendees of all the race schools together, they only represent a tiny percentage of street riders.  This is not to say they are not good schools.  To the contrary, they have much to offer.  But they are not for everyone.

Fortunately, Lee Parks’ Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic (Total Control ARC) has a solution for those experienced riders “caught in the middle,” as well as those track-day junkies and racers who want to be able to further enhance their skills, in a controlled environment with expert instruction.

This course is all about proficiency in the art of being a better motorcycle rider.  We use a step-by-step program where each technique builds on the previous technique.  This course follows basic human training – crawl before you walk, and walk before you run.

We will cover the following:

  • Traction Management (class room)
    Parts, Forces and Conditions
  • Mental State (class room and exercises)
    Fear, Concentration and Right Attitude
  • Throttle Control (class room and range exercises)
    There is more to it than you think
  • Trail Braking (class room and range exercises)
    A concept from the racing community that has many benefits
  • Vision (class room and range exercises)
    The only course that gets into understanding why you look where you go
  • Line selection (class room and range exercises)
    How to select the best line and the most common mistakes riders make
  • Body Positioning (class room, static bike and range exercises)
    Here you’ll learn and practice the exclusive “10 Steps to Proper Cornering” and the right position for you on your type of motorcycle.
  • Suspension (class room and set-up)
    After this session you’ll know more than most mechanics and race technicians
