Sportbike Advanced Rider Training - Open to All

Sportbike Advanced Rider Training - Open to All

This is a training event for all motorcycle riders alike. We are focusing on sportbikes because thats the type of groups we ride with for the most part but all types of bikes are welcome.

So far we have had 2 of these types of training days and they have turned out really well. Everyone is learning new skills and making significant improvements.

PLEASE ONLY RSVP IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO SHOWING UP.

FEE: $5 per motorcycle, cash only
This money that goes back into SEHR events and give-aways. This is not to pay our coaches or buy beer. We donate our own time and skills to our community of riders because we want to build a better one.

Different things are going to be covered at each event depending on who shows and what is best to teach that day.
We will cover things like:
emergency breaking
swerving
riding form
cornering
corner braking
group riding
and more

Everything will be properly demonstrated and explained, then we will do different exercises to help you develop the skills being taught. This will give our coaches an opportunity to give you tips for improving as well as allow you to ask any questions.

PLEASE ONLY RSVP IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO SHOWING UP.

Our riding coaches are Daniel Provorse and Justin Montgomery.

Daniel has been riding for several years and has successfully coached riders in all aspects. All have improved, had a good time, and walked away better riders.

Justin has been riding for several years and has spent a lot of time on the track. He has experience as a body position coach which he taught professionally. He has coached many riders and all have been happy with his methods and shown improvement.

PLEASE ONLY RSVP IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO SHOWING UP.

You can RSVP on facebook by joining our event. Click here to see the event on facebook.

Time: Saturday, May 30 at 9:00am

I'm a new rider and paid $230 for the MSF basic course to get the motorcycle endorsement. Waste of time and money. I didn't learn a single thing.

Saved...I suggest you save your 5$ and buy some tacos with it instead. You'll find that some quality tacos will do more good for you than trying to learn hard braking and a public park parking lot.

your better off doing a Trackday if you want good training on advanced riding.

**and remember, this "class" probably doesn't come with an injury waiver. So if/when you crash, feel free to sue the ever-loving out of them**

You must be bad asssss, I had students who've been riding for decades and they learned something.

If you goto class to learn you'll learn, if you already know it all, nothing to learn out there

The Course for Motorcycle Riders

In The Course for Motorcycle Riders, you ride. You don't just talk about it.

It's challenging.

It's fun.

It can even save you money on insurance rates.

And your only homework assignment is to make it home safely.



There's no substitute for a good teacher.
The instructors we choose know their stuff. And they make sure you do, too. They help you develop advanced riding skills you can't learn from family members or friends.

They come from various backgrounds, but they all have three things in common: They're professionally trained. They've been riding for years. And they want to see others enjoy the sport--and live to spread the word.

The Course is taught at two levels. There's a basic class for new riders and an advanced class for experienced riders. That way new riders don't feel intimidated by experienced riders. And experienced riders don't have to wait for beginners to catch up. Either class can be completed in one weekend or over the course of a few evenings. Choose the one that's right for you.

Think of it as Motorcycling 101.
Sign up for the basic course if you haven't had much riding experience or if you've never ridden at all. The Course is required for everyone to get a motorcycle driver's license.

In the basic course, we teach you how to operate a motorcycle, the best protective clothing to wear, how to avoid dangerous situations and, what's most important, how to get out of those dangerous situations you can't avoid.

You learn to make your motorcycle perform like an extension of yourself. And by the end of The Course, we'll be challenging your skills at the two-year rider level. The best part is you don't even need a helmet or a motorcycle. We provide them for you.

Motorcycling at the graduate level.
The advanced course is for experienced riders only. You work with other riders like yourself. And since advanced students use their own motorcycles, you'll see all types of bikes, from cruisers to sport bikes to touring machines.

No matter how long you've been riding, the advanced course is tough enough to challenge your skills. You learn high-speed maneuvering, quick swerving and avoidance techniques, countersteering, traction control, and emergency braking for curves and slippery surfaces. Skills you can use whether you're touring cross-country or just riding down to the corner store.

Register today
Become a better rider and have fun at the same time. Visit our home page and search by city under "TRAINING LOCATIONS" to sign up for The Course today. In Texas, the thrills begin with skill.

I think you took my post the wrong way. Because I'm the world's worst rider. I took that class to learn about motorcycle safety, but it was all common sense. They didn't cover how to corner by counter steering. They didn't cover how to down shift before a turn. They didn't cover about proper weight distribution while throttling through a corner. I learned more from watching "Twist of the wrist" on YouTube, than I did taking the basic course. We never left the parking lot. I'm sure the first time rider heads out on the freeway, they become stiff on the bars and loose confidence the first time the bike wobbles. Just trying to say I'm sure this guys meet is worth the five dollars. But what do I know? I'm the new guy.

You haven't heard, common sense isn't so common

People fail out of that class, what does that tell you.

You don't have to RSVP on facebook to attend.

This course is not licensed. It is 2 experienced riders getting together with inexperienced riders to teach them. Every class we have done so far, people are making improvements. This is not an "official" class to get a license.

It is for those who want to learn about cornering, weight distribution, form, and how to adjust to your bike.

All money is considered a donation to SEHR so we may sponsor and host other events. Thats why its only $5.

As far as having 2 classes. I have taken the basic course 2 times and an advanced course 2 times. I had to due to being in the Marine Corps. They make you do that stuff annually. I can tell you we cover things that are in the advanced course and MORE. The certified advanced sportbike course does not cover a LOT of things that you would have to go to a track to learn.

We are offering you a chance to learn many advanced skills at no cost. Others want to capitalize on it, fine. I want to improve my riding community.

If you already know all that stuff, stay at home.

Professional body position coach? ...sounds interesting. Could you elaborate on how this is taught professionally?

Any of you instructors have racing experience?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

So no answer to my question....

My body position sucks; it is VERY clear to anyone that has seen me ride over the last 30 plus years, but I am set in my ways, so I will pass on your offer.

So...two guys with a few (two?) years experience are going to teach new riders how to ride because they took a few (four) classes?

Yeah, that should be great.

I understand your desire to help newbs and more than likely you excel in other areas (thank you for you service as a Marine), but nothing is worse than a little education.

Good luck to your "students".

A newer street rider with the "perfect BP" is dangerous on the road when that is their focus. Clipping apexes right into the ditch. They should be concentrating on proper lines, proper acceleration, and solid braking (not breaking) and just getting comfortable on their bike. It cracks me up that people think this is how you ride a motorcycle these days...its all about BP.

Your a critic for something you know nothing about. Do you work for a new station?

When was the last time I coached you?

Id love to meet you and work on that body position of yours.

To straighten out your guesses. Combined riding years is over 30. And we teach because we want to share knowledge, not because we know it all.

So far I have coached 3 courses and every one has shown significant improvement. They wont be winning moto gp anytime soon but thats not what this is about.
