The Total Control Training has been ramping up since January 1st and is now being taught at more site in California.
This program is ideal for new riders who are committed to learning how to ride a motorcycle.
That pause is to remind you to take it slow when that new bike shows up under your tree. Take some time to acquaint yourself with your bike. Get to know your bike. All the pieces and parts that you can touch should be touched.
Check your tires. Look for wear and look at the pressure.
Oil and gas change all the time. Brake and transmission and final drive fluids too. See where they are. Fill them. Memorize the levels.
Before you blast off, take a moment to get to know your bike.

If you plan on riding, or not riding, this Winter there is one handy item that can save you hundred bucks.
A battery tender!
This small charging device is the difference between having to buy a new battery in the Spring and going out for a ride on that first warm day.
If you plan on storing your bike and not riding, it’s best to disconnect your battery and put it a tickle charge. If you plan on riding through the winter it’s best to keep the trickle charger on.
Consult your MOM for the best tips.
That would be the Motorcycle Operations Manual.
1 – Choosing a Practice Area
A well-marked parking lot is the best practice area. Be aware, however, of oil left by parked cars. Look for parking lots that are not used all the time at shopping centers, schools, churches or community centers. For instance, you might use a school lot in the evening hours, or a shopping center early in the morning.
Once you’ve selected a suitable location, it’s important to gain permission from the owner.
Traffic is your greatest concern.
Make sure you check to the front, sides and rear before doing an exercise. Also, make sure you watch out for children and animals and be considerate of others in the area.
