This 1-day Introduction to Dirt Bike Riding is for people who already ride a motorcycle.
Experienced motorcycle riders will get a review of controls, braking and handling on a dirt bike, as well as course work on flat terrain. Then, most of the the time will be spent on obstacles, hilly terrain, turning on inclines and managing speeds on the trail.
You’ll learn body position, applying pressure in tight turns, and other unique skills for dirt bikes. At the end of the class, you’ll go out on the trails with your instructor.
We’ll spend the morning learning the basics of gear, mounting, bike controls and how to manage braking, speed adjustments and turns.
In the afternoon, we’ll go out on the course for figure-8s, weaving at slow speeds, riding over small obstacles and hill exercises of U-turns, K-turns and hill traversing.
To finish, we’ll cover local riding clubs, courses, dealerships and equipment costs.
