One of our riders, John Pina, is hosting a technical riding and safety skills course and has opened it up to SloMo members! This is a slow speed skills practice, but will be more advanced than our typical beginning session. A lot of the maneuvers will be based on the police officer motorcycle training courses and will encompass more than the basics. Space is limited to eight members from our group, so if this is something you'd be interested in, get your Yes RSVP in right away!
He's also invited any coaches to come along and assist, so you experienced riders should plan to attend as well. If you want to, of course!
Here is the flyer from John:

Gospel Wheels is offering a technical riding and safety skills motorcycle course designed to practice basic to intermediate riding skills. Many of the courses are derived from police motor officer training courses. It is a tactical and defensive training program, and it will challenge you.
Most accidents and collisions can be avoided, and the tactical skills, evasive techniques and situational awareness maneuvers learned in this training program can help you avoid many of them. You will practice the elements of proper turning movements for quick, tight transition turns, and proper emergency braking and turning techniques. You will be taught the proper method of using "high horizon" eye placement and how it is directly related to accident avoidance. This course is challenging and a step up from a beginner’s basic riding course.
REQUIRED EQUIPMENT: D.O.T. helmet and eye protection, over the ankle boots and good quality gloves, and long pants. No shorts, sleeveless shirts or open toed shoes will be allowed.
