Jason Herheim, Motovid – Real World Speed Street Motorcycle Skills Program
Other required motorcycle course offer great experiences. Usually they teach the new rider on a flat parking surface with modest speeds. Mimicking the topical city streets at average speeds.
However, learning to handling a powerful street bike on highways, curved country roads and changing weather conditions was left up to the individual rider. Sort of a “trial by fire” approach.
Jason and others decided there was a gap in motorcycle training. They created a course covering braking at highway speeds and taking evasive action. Each lesson includes vision and perceptions on the road, handling a corner at variable speeds and how someone riding on the back the bike can affect the bikes handling. The classes are held at places like Blackhawk Farms Raceway, Road America and Milwaukee Mile race course.
The course includes classroom sessions and real world track time. The Motovid team includes 1 instructor for every three riders with a safety personnel monitoring all the drills.
Even experienced riders have found that taking Motovid’s classes will sharpen their own riding skills.
Jason is also the Motorcycle Safety Program Director at Madison College (formerly Madison Area Technical College).
