THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR BOTH EXPERIENCED RIDERS LOOKING FOR A REFRESHER AND NEW RIDERS WANTING TO GET A FEW RIDING TIPS.

These workshops in rural NSW are possible thanks to a grant from Transport for NSW.  We are currently contacting local Councils to arrange the details.  If you are interested in attending a workshop in your local area contact your local Council and ask them to contact us, or, you can email us at david@survivetheride.org.

 

Our workshop in March this year in the Tweed Heads area was a great success with over 27 riders attending.  Thanks to the Road Safety Officer at Tweed Shire Council for all her efforts in organising the day.

We are hoping this will become an annual event in the Tweed Shire.

A number of Rider Safety Workshops were conducted in rural NSW in 2015 thanks to the assistance of the Road Safety Officers at Coffs Harbour, Eurobodalla and Albury Councils, local motorcycle dealers and NRMA Motoring and Services.

Our workshops are attended by people wanting to gain a higher level of understanding on increasing the smiles and reducing the frights when riding.

This session is aimed at providing information for both new and and potential Harley riders along with those just wanting a refresher course.

Watch this space for more information.

The workshop aim:

We want to assist riders (including new and “returning” riders) to enjoy riding while also minimising the chance of repair bills, medical bills and Police fines.

Why should you attend?

We are riders so we know how much enjoyment there is to be gained from riding.  But we are also human and we know how easy it is to make a mistake regardless of our experience   (we have the scars and the demerit points from our own little mistakes.)

You will also make mistakes.  We talk about how to avoid your own simple mistakes and how to anticipate the mistakes of others so you can still enjoy the ride and improve your skills.

Who should attend?

Both new and experienced riders have benefited from the workshops.

We can also organise workshops tailored for specific groups such as dealerships, riding groups and clubs.

What do we talk about?

The workshop will cover:

  • The enjoyment and practicalities of riding
  • Maintaining your machine
  • Debating the pros and cons of riding gear
  • Reducing your personal  risks
  • How to get from A to B and back again in one piece and with a grin on your face.

If your dealership or shop would like to host a workshop, please contact us to book a date.
