R.A.O. Training Academy
SHARING THE KNOWLEDGE - after years of riding and several training courses taken, we realize this:
"Skilled riders make for better and safer group rides". ~ Andraise
R. A. O. - 101
Learn how to safely ride with others. We will cover R.A.O. basics, group riding basics and discuss the differences. We will also go over how to plan for an overnight trip and a multi-day trip. What to pack, how to pack, the best ways to secure luggage to your bike and a number of tips and tricks for touring. There will also be some road time involved as we practice all of the riding formations and road rules covered.
(all bikes and trikes welcome)
PACKING CONCEPTS FOR MOTORCYCLE TOURING:
We will show you just how easy it can be to pack what you "need" for a multi-day motorcycle tour. Whether it's overnight, 6 nights or a month, learning the basics will set your mind at ease! And, it doesn't have to break your wallet either! (no motorcycle nec.)
Drillz N Skillz
All riders should practice their skills regularly because riding a motorcycle is a perishable skill set. In this course we will go through several slow speed drills in a parking lot. These drills will help with overall bike handling and control, U-turns, tighter U-turns, object avoidance, stop/starting on hills, tricky parking situations and different techniques for picking up a dropped motorcycle. This course is focused on PRACTICING the drillz for skillz that riders should already know. For in depth instruction on learning these skills, we highly recommend ProRider of Hagerstown. https://www.proriderofhagerstown.com/
(all two wheeled motorcycles welcome)
