Course Outline

On a ride, you may see an obstacle at the last moment and need to make a quick turn. Although you use the same skills as in a sharp turn, you need faster reaction times and may need to make your actions more extreme.

  • Set five markers about 35 feet apart. Weave back and forth around the markers.
  • Start slowly, and then gradually speed up without going beyond second gear.
  • When you’re comfortable with the current spacing, move the markers closer together, working down to a minimum of 18 feet.
  • If you frequently hit markers, swing wider as you go around the marker and shift your weight more. Also add a burst of speed but not so much that the front pops up.
