Kawasaki and BikeSafe launch off-road skills courses

Kawasaki and BikeSafe have launched off-road skills courses targeted to increase confidence and safety in all riding conditions.
The courses, designed to offer something to those new to dirt riding as well as more experienced riders who have yet to make the connection between trail and motocross machines and the challenges of road riding, are available at a number of UK venues.

Hosted by existing Kawasaki Off-Road Experience partners, training will be conducted by experts such as former Paris-Dakar competitor Mick Extance and MX multiple champion Lee Dunham.

The one-day courses will teach such things as machine control under low-traction conditions, how to predict and rectify instability and hazard anticipation.

Riders of all makes and types of road machines can book through www.kawasaki-bikesafe.co.uk, or be referred following any BikeSafe road-based workshop [BikeSafe is a police-led motorcycle project that is run by most forces throughout the UK with the aim of reducing biker casualties.]

On successful completion, riders with receive an accreditation certificate signed by Kawasaki and Bikesafe.

The scheme – which includes the use of an off-road motorcycle and all relevant safety equipment – is available to all full motorcycle licence holders for £200 with a 10% discount applying to existing BikeSafe Riders and Kawasaki Riders Club members.
