Essential Cornering Skills (Corner with Confidence)

September 24, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST


In our “Essential Cornering Skills” Course we have broken the braking and cornering process right down into easily digestible chunks, and our coaching team will work closely with you to give you individual feedback and guidance throughout the sessions.

If you are looking for a way to refine your skills, eliminate the frights  and make your riding more predictable, consistent, and enjoyable, this is definitely for you!

In the 4 hours course we will teach you:

✅ how to set your bike and yourself up for the corner correctly every single time;

✅ the science that actually makes a motorcycle turn (when you understand this your cornering WILL change forever);

✅ the system of braking and throttle control that professional riders use;

✅ road lines vs race lines – and why race lines should stay at the race track;

✅ how to select the correct for the corner; and

✅ how to recover if you get it wrong (and we hope you don’t after this course).

You will leave with a proven and repeatable cornering system that you can use immediately.

Regardless of your riding experience we can guarantee you’ll leave with a greater understanding of your motorcycle and with improved cornering skills.

Whilst riders on learners permits will be allowed on this course, please contact us first to discuss your skill level to ensure you meet the basic criteria for the course.

You will need:

  • a roadworthy and registered motorcycle with a full tank of fuel;
  • the appropriate licence for the motorcycle you are riding;
  • a helmet that meets Australian standard AS/NZS 1698 or ECE Standard 22.05 or higher;
  • clothing that covers your entire body (no exposed skin allowed), closed in shoes; and
