This includes making sure our bikes have been adequately maintained and any off-season repairs or improvements have been addressed fully. New riding gear, including the latest helmet innovations, jackets, gloves, boots, riding pants, and eye protection, are currently available and at pre-season prices, enabling you to bump up your safety with a minimum investment.
Spring cleaning also applies to your riding chops both physically and mentally. Tune up your street awareness by making use of our extensive YouTube video collection
, which features over 30 "quick-tips" to refresh, refine, and reinforce some of those skills lost during our winter hiatus.
Improving your physical riding skills also includes scheduling an early-season rider training program, ensuring you keep the sunny side up and those road gremlins at bay. As a bonus, our award-winning state program, Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety, is currently being updated as we have a NEW provider this season with Total Control Training
. Improvements include an innovative classroom presentation and almost double the riding time, providing you with numerous drills and scenarios to instill proper riding habits. Even if you've taken the former Basic Rider Course in the past, it is highly recommended to "begin again" with this fresh approach to learning and improving your motorcycling experience. As before, Intermediate, Advanced, and a 3-wheeled BRC will also be available – all with new riding drills and concepts. Currently, the entire PA Instructor core is being trained in the Total Control Method and classes will be posted!
For those looking for even more options, check out a few of Snyder's Riders Safety Partners, like ProRider Pittsburgh
