ADVANCED COURSE FOR MOTORCYCLE RIDERS

The "Motorradsicherheitstraining", a German motorcycle safety training course for advanced riders is scientifically based on several analyses: the stability of a single track vehicle, the rider's task, the rider's attitudes, and exposure data and accidents. The main objective is to teach safe and reasonable traffic behavior. Program content comprises practical riding training, riding physics, vehicle technology, hazard identification, mental training, riding attitudes, traffic rules, and home exercises. Teaching methods are based on motorcyclist attitudes and behavior, institutional circumstances, participant experiences, group learning, and repetition of exercises. The teaching theory is "integration," which stresses the direct relationships among learning targets. Four different learning units are utilized in which all targets are integrated: stabilizing the motorcycle, braking, cornering, and obstacle avoidance.
