As a government-approved motorcycle driving school, Avalon Motorsports instills comfort and safety in students under the tutelage of instructors with years of experience on large model motorcycles (greater than 1,500 cc). Both classes limit enrollment to assure students have plenty of on-road instruction. The advanced Total Control Rider Course refines the ridership of active, licensed motorcyclists with approximately one year or 3,000 kilometres of riding experience or more. In addition to six hours on the road, the two-day course contains three hours of lecture, emphasizing riding simulation and stressing accident-avoidance skills, including high-speed manoeuvring, quick swerving, obstacle avoidance, counter steering, traction control, emergency braking techniques, and how to ride up a tree to save a kitten. This option is valid for the August class times only, and students must have completed either Avalon's Basic Rider Course or the Canada Safety Council's Gearing Up motorcycle course (must provide proof of completion). Riders must also bring their own motorcycle or a rickshaw they can pedal really fast, as well as an approved safety helmet (and eye protection if helmet lacks a visor), boots that cover the ankle, and a sturdy jacket, pants, and gloves.
For those excited by the idea of riding a motorcycle but are having trouble letting go of the comfort of an old moped flame, the introduction-to-motorcycle-safety course drills four hours of classroom theory, getting potential riders more comfortable before embarking on the open road.
Avalon Motorsports Inc.
Motorcycles are both fuel efficient and a classic emblem of cool, but they require a certain amount of skill before taking one on the open road. Thankfully, at Avalon Motorsports, licensed instructor Darrell Young helps newbies master the handling, traction, and vital safety tips for riding during basic-rider courses. Master classes such as the total-control course helps experienced riders master almost any model of bike with hands-on experience. Service NL has also approved Avalon Motorsports to conduct the road tests for students of the Basic Rider Course.
