July 15, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Collision Avoidance Training
The purpose of this collision avoidance course is an attempt to further motorcycle safety to the public, and curtail avoidable collisions through seated and practical instruction.
Motorcycles are a practical and fun form of transportation. With the high price of gasoline, more and more people are turning to motorcycles as an affordable means of getting around. And while they are fun to ride, a motorcycle can be and is a dangerous vehicle to operate. With proper training, practice, and a vigilant eye for the other driver, you can cut down on the odds of you becoming a statistic or a pile of metal on the side of the road.
The Collision Avoidance Training course offered at Northwood Baptist Church will teach you the skills needed to help you avoid potential accidents. The instructor is a certified Police Motorcycle Officer and Training Officer with years of experience operating police motorcycles and teaching police motorcycle skills in a variety of settings. You will learn how to operate your personal motorcycle on some of the same courses taught to police motor officers. These basic skills support safe operation in tough situations and in a wide variety of weather conditions.
You will learn:
The Five Basic Principals of Safe Motorcycle Operation
T-Clock Safety Inspection
Counter steering techniques
Normal & Maximum braking skills
Cornering and Collision avoidance while in a turn
Traffic and Pedestrian avoidance skills
