Street Smarts is a street riding course designed to enable the experienced motorcyclist to obtain supervised “real world” traffic experience on their own motorcycles. In the classroom portion of the course, the topics of protective clothing, lane positioning, road hazards, and emergency and cornering situations are reviewed. Discussion also includes changing weather, varying road/traffic conditions, intersection hazards, and interstate and mountain road riding. Depending on the customer’s skill level, the riding portion of this course may begin on a closed course with practice in cornering and stopping techniques. For the public street portion of the class, riders may choose between urban, suburban, and rural mountain riding. The mountain riding session begins on country lanes, and is designed to improve rider confidence by progressively introducing roads with a greater variety of curves and elevation changes.

Note: A safety inspection of the customer’s motorcycle will be performed prior to beginning the course. Proper tire condition, tire pressure, and suspension settings are critical aspects of this inspection. In addition, the motorcycle must not have any fluid leaks. It is the rider’s responsibility to ensure that the motorcycle is in good condition prior to arriving at the training site. The instructor reserves the right to cancel a course and reschedule any customer whose motorcycle does not pass inspection.

Fee: $520.00 (one instructor per customer)
Duration: 5-6 hours *

Prerequisite: SB 101 or SB 102 or the equivalent
A motorcycle will be provided for this class. Motorcycle license/permit is required for on-road riding.

Adventure Sport Riding for the Street Rider is geared for beginning, intermediate, or advanced street riders who want the confidence to continue when the paved road turns to gravel or single track trail. One of the fastest growing forms of motorcycling today, adventure sport (also dual sport) riding features street-legal off-road motorcycles that can be operated on pavement, dirt roads, and trails.

Our Course 202 teaches off-road riding skills and provides riders with experience handling a motorcycle in low-traction conditions. The basic motorcycle skills of straight line riding, shifting, turning, and braking are presented with an emphasis on lower body control, body positioning, and weight distribution. Intermediate skills are presented and practiced as appropriate to the rider's skill level. These skills will be practiced on a careful selection of fire service linked together by paved and gravel back roads. A dual sport motorcycle will be provided.

If you are new to this segment of motorcycling, the tri-state area of North Georgia, Eastern Tennessee, and Western North Carolina offers some of the best adventure sport riding in the country. Whether you plan to jump in with both feet or just want to improve your riding skills for occasional forays onto dirt and gravel roads, AS 202 will give you the confidence to take your riding to the next level.

Riders seeking the ultimate in street and off-road riding instruction on their adventure sport (dual sport) motorcycles need look no further than the Adventure Sport Riding.
