(Minimizing Traffic delays) Motorcycles & Traffic Congestion:

We wanted to see how much of a difference motorcycles can really make in helping to keep traffic moving, so we produced this simulation based on real world traffic studies.

M2 Licence Test Video:

We spent a day in the rain recording 4 parts of the M1X licensing test to give you a sense of what you'll encounter after your training program.

(ZERO BAC) Being Impaired on a Motorcycle:

Balance and judgement are critical on a motorcycle, and you can still be impaired even when you're below the legal limit (.08 BAC).

Putting yourself where you can see the most of what's going on around you is a good starting point, and can help get you oriented in live traffic.

M2X Licence Test Tips - Communication:

Communicating properly in live traffic can help others see you, and avoid conflicts.

M1X Course Tips - Assertive Swerving:

Focus on smooth technique; push steering the motorcycle with steady throttle input while turning your head and looking around the obstacle.

M1X Course Tips - Slow Speed Riding:

Fine-tune your ability to manage power delivery with the clutch in the "friction zone". Use of the rear brake will help stabilize the motorcycle in tight turns, maintaining a steady elevated throttle will ensure consistent power.

M1X Course Tips - Downshifting:

With practice downshifting can become a great asset, such as assisting in wet weather braking, as long as you're mindful of smooth clutch operation and power management.

With practice, this skill can become second nature and help keep you on the road for many years to come.
