Motorcycle Training and Rides for Adults
At SMART Adventures, we ensure you'll have the maximum learning experience and fun by matching the lesson and technical level of the track/trail to your abilities. And we group you with students who have the same skill level and who are in the same age group as yourself.
Absolute-Beginner Motorcycle Riders
You will be taught in a small group with others of like ability. Our goal is that you learn to ride off-road vehicles safely and that you have fun! There is no test or end goal that you have to attain so you can progress at your own comfort level.
If your goal is to ride street motorcycles, then learning how to ride off-road motorcycles will really help prepare you with the basics of “how to properly operate a motorcycle.” It is much easier to learn new skills than to correct/relearn improper techniques: by learning to ride on your own, you can get very good at doing the wrong thing; this makes it much harder to adopt good, safe motorcycle-riding habits.
Beginner Motorcycle Riders
Many of our students train with us before taking a two-day, basic street-motorcycle rider training course. And many new riders come to us after taking their street-motorcycle course for extra time and coaching on a motorcycle. Everyone learns at different rates. Don't beat yourself up if you don't pass your street-riding course test the first time. Practice will lead to more confidence, which leads to success. The more repetition of basic motorcycle-handling skills, the better the retention of those skills.
Experienced Motorcycle Riders
Will dirt-motorcycle training help your street-riding skills? Absolutely! Practicing off-road riding and collision avoidance training on various terrains (grass, gravel, sand and mud) will fine-tune your skills.
Many street-motorcycle riders panic needlessly when they encounter construction or a gravel road. Too many street riders lock up the rear wheel when braking, skid and then lose control of the bike. We'll teach you to skid the rear wheel, so as to get the feel of controlling a slide.
Smooth riding, whether on- or off-road, comes with practice. We believe that the brain will resort to habit when in panic mode. If you don't have established safety habits that you practice regularly, you may resort to what too many riders do in an emergency situation: panic, freeze and do nothing, or do the wrong thing. Take some training, keep your skills fresh, and establish good habits when riding your off-road or road vehicle.
