SMART Motorcycle Course

May 15, 2015


The Safe Motorcycle and Rider Techniques (SMART) course is a free course provided by the Osceola County, FL Sheriff's Office.  This course is designed to educate riders and help them with riding techniques to make them a safer rider.  This course I personally went through and it was the best course for motorcycle riders. 

The course I expericened started with:

2x4 Board Drill

The Figure Eight

Curve Negotiation

Emergency Braking

During the brakes we covered Group riding, Pre-ride motorcycle safety inspections, Picking up a fallen motorcycle, Approaching Red Lights and Head and Eyes.

The second halk of the day we did:

The Intersection

Off-Set Cones Weave

U-Turns

The instructors are members of the Osceola County Sheriff Motor Unit.  They are very knowledgeable and helpful.  The participates I spoke with felt that the instructors were very helpful and happy to be teaching.
