SMART the free motorcycle safety course!

M - Make yourself more visible to motorists
A - Always wear your helmet when you ride
R - Ride in control (within legal and personal limits)
T - Train regularly and get endorsed

We all love our sport, but motorcycle related fatalies impact us and those we love far too often. Reducing motorcycle related crashes and fatalies means training and awareness for riders. This is why the S.M.A.R.T. program was created!

The goal of SMART training is: "To help students demonstrate safe motorcycle riding techniques by negotiating commonly found street riding situations in a controlled and skill oriented manner."

Courses offered by the SMART program occur in closed courses, instructed by elite, trained, motor officers. They teach the very same techniques that they use making them some of the best riders in the world. Students get individual attention that will improve their riding while providing them with new skills. Pay attention and apply what you learn and you can ride away from the course a better, safer rider than when you showed up.

Work with us to make the streets safer and reduce motorcycle related crashes and falities. Lets save lives.
