Las Vegas Private All-Terrain Vehicle Beginner Training Ride
1. Basic motorcycle control
The class includes a brief introduction to how the motorcycle works and the bike's controls, including how to change gears, turn signals, brake fluid operation and throttle lever operation, clutch operation, etc.
2. Theory of controls
The theory of control is the first stage of motorcycle training. The idea of rules is to teach basic control techniques such as clutch control, throttle control, brake fluid operation, and gear shifting.
3. Engine braking & weight shifting
Engine braking is a technique to bring a motorcycle to a complete stop without using the brakes. Motorcycles are made up entirely of levers, with two wheels that turn very fast in place of an anchor point (like the ground). By letting off on the throttle, you can use Newton's second law and have the motorcycle come to a stop in a much shorter distance at almost no cost.
One of the most important things to learn about a motorcycle is shifting gears. As you ride through a turn, your bike will accelerate in the direction of the turn. If you are accelerating in the right direction, you are saving energy and losing control of your bike. Proper shifting teaches riders to shift into the appropriate gear for the particular situation. Most new riders try to go up or down only when needed and get stuck in one bag or another constantly. The goal is to learn how to shift anytime without causing dangerous situations.
Braking is one of the most important parts of motorcycle riding. A good rider should be able to stop at the shortest distance possible. This department will teach you how to brake properly and smoothly through heel-and-toe shifting, using both brakes at all times, and using a smooth and steady motion.
6. Gear down vs. counter slide
Gear down vs. counter slide is an important part of motorcycle training that helps prevent accidents when making turns on a motorcycle. Countersliding is a technique used to turn inside or outside a corner without losing traction; by skidding the rear tire as much as possible, the back end loses traction but does not lose control of the bike.
This summarizes the skills taught in motorcycle training and concludes with a short drive through a part of Vegas to get new riders used to their bikes, on the road, and driving in traffic. All participants must be at least 18 years old on the day of participation. All participants must present an original valid state-issued driver’s license or ID card.
