Street Smart - Rider Perception

The goal of this program is to improve a rider's perceptive abilities when riding in traffic. Poor perception puts a rider at a disadvantage. Motorcycling requires more than coordination and balance. This program will acquaint participants with their perceptive processes, help them understand how the brain and eyes work together to manage risk, and to develop useful perception techniques.

This highly interactive program utilizes images of traffic situations to illustrate what participants might encounter in the real world, as well as factors that affect perception, such as rider speed, lane position or path of travel.

For example, during a small group activity, colorful "vision challenge" floor mats and oversized playing cards are used to demonstrate the extreme narrowness of central vision, among other visual characteristics, and to underscore the value of keeping the eyes moving while riding.

We would be happy to lead this course in your or our classroom. This kit can also be taught by members of your group.
