No, they don't offer those classes in my area. Looks like there are some similarities. I am trying to do some rider training every year. This is my second class with this school. There is a nice feeling of accomplishment when you are able to complete the exercises easily at the end of the class after struggling in the beginning. Not sure what will happen with the school as it seems like there are planning to take a break for next year.

Got a tip on a dirt class for next year which I am really looking forward to. Practicing with a bike where the tires move and slip around on the surface seems like it would be a good think to experience as a road rider. Wish there were more classes available in my area.

Is this with Advanced Rider Training ?

Did you or anyone else in the class drop your bike - I really want to take an advanced riding course and am looking at one of the first springtime offerings, but I am scared of using my bike and risking it.

Mine was done with a local school: Roadcraft Motorcycle Academy | Advanced motorcycle training—helping riders reach the peak of their potential

I'm a firm believer in doing training locally where possible. You can learn the basics locally and travel when you exhaust local resources.

Regarding the drops there was a few. One was mine. A silly mental lapse. The exercise was to practice getting off on the high side of the bike. The rational being that if you are pulled over on a busy highway having some practice getting off the bike opposite the traffic side would be good. We were told motorcycle police are trained to do this. I was so mentally thinking about getting off the bike...I didn't have my kickstand all the way down...oops. No real damage. The plastic on the givi engine guards has another scratch and same with the bar ends.

The first drops are the hardest...gets easier after that :)
