SMART Rider – Corner with Confidence

December 11, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST


When we looked at why riders have bad experiences in corners we realised that sometimes there’s one overriding action or decision, but most times it’s a series of small errors – basics that just didn’t line up!


It could be a number of factors and trying to figure out what isn’t quite right is difficult if not impossible for most of us.


What we need is a proven and repeatable system, and that’s what we’ll give you in the SMART Rider – Corner with Confidence course.


We’ve broken the braking and cornering process right down into easily digestible chunks that you can learn and apply instantly, and then consolidate into a consistent system that becomes part of your regular riding regime.


Some of the things you will learn are:

  • 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;
  • selecting the correct gear for the corner; and
  • how to recover if you get it wrong (and we hope you don’t after this course).


SMART Rider – Corner with Confidence is a 4-hour practical course in a closed and safe environment, and at a pace that allows you to absorb and consolidate the skills we’re wanting to teach you.


You will work in small groups of riders of a similar experience level, and our team will work closely with you to give you individual feedback and guidance throughout the sessions.
