Riding Lessons

A couple of police motor instructors and I were talking about offering some instruction based on what we teach at our motor academy. The dangers you face on the road are no different than what we face, yet the training available to you is pretty limited. I will be putting on a class on July 5th from 830 AM to 130 PM. Location will be at Hollister Honda with a nice ride down Hwy 25 after class. Class size will be limited to 5 students. Cost is 150 dollars. A portion will be donated to this forum. I own a 09 Versys and can tell you that this bike will tear up any cone pattern with the right techniques. You can PM or email me at [email protected]

What a pity it is just California because I think this is a great idea and offering. Is it possible to communicate to other states to present the same course?

$150 is a bit steep ?

Check out who puts on a motor academy in your area. Find out who the instructors are and ask them if they would be willing to do it for you.

Eddie, our local PD has motorcycle cops. Maybe I should just ask their dept if they are willing to put on a class.

I could do full lock U turns but I'm not as smooth and fast at it than motocops.

Try to befriend one of them and perhaps he/she will work with you. Just keep in mind that not all motorcops are created equal. Past experience and practice ethic are very important when it comes to taking advice from someone regarding motorcycle riding. I know some motorcops that barely got past the academy and are marginal riders. They are the ones that won't demonstrate anything in front of you.
