Motorcycle

Why?

As individual mobility is restricted by increased traffic, more and more road users see the motorcycle as a way to escape traffic chaos and enjoy their freedom.

Motorcyclists often arrive in dangerous situations because they underestimate other road users, or because another road user does not see them. In these situations a defensive approach and the appropriate reactions are important.

Motorcyclists often have no possibility to use emergency braking and ABS to avoid dangerous situations.

  • Our aim is educate our participants to take a more aware and defensive attitude to driving through simulations of dangerous and emergency situations using special road constructions and the latest equipment. The highest security standards combined with well trained and experienced instructors, help our participants to adopt a more defensive driving style. They become more aware of the dangers of everyday traffic and get to know their limits and those of their cars. They are then more likely to react in an appropriate way in emergency situations.
