Why it works?

Our mission is to offer a training system and environment that elevates all riders to a highly skilled
level with a 100% retention that is affordable, social and relevant to everyday riding scenarios.
There are three elements that are critical to riding a road bike well. If you can just get these 3
elements down on a road bike then you will be able to develop to any level you want. Imagine
having these 3 elements locked and loaded, right at the beginning of your Riding journey.

1. SPEED CONTROL: subtle use of throttle, gears and most importantly the brakes is fundamental to
mastery of the bike but even more important is understanding the feedback from the frame, tyres
and suspension.

2. POSTURE : Maintaining balance, smooth use of the controls while cornering, braking and
accelerating all come down to how you sit and move on the bike. To move well on the bike you need
to know the body mechanics on posture and human movement. There are three main elements on
posture. Mastering these three elements will take your cornering to the next level

Head and eye movement


Body position

Getting this right will be a watershed moment on your riding journey.

3. TIMING : A bike has two wheels. When and how you change your speed will have a subtle or
drastic affect on your steering and stability. Poor timing will destabilize your bike in all kinds of
situations but primarily in corners. Good timing however will create stabilization and predictable
steering which will ultimately result in mastery of the bike.

At MotoDojo we have created the Rider Development Program. This is a first for motorcycle training
and we are very excited to offer it to the Brisbane motorcycling community. In the rider
development program, club members will complete twelve, focused, two hour training and coaching
modules on specialized skills that focus on the 3 critical elements of riding. Club members will be
able to do a two hour module every month, leaving plenty of time for practice and other things just
as important in life such as family, friends and your job.

The key element for learning and retaining a skill is repetition, practice and continuous
reinforcement though coaching and revision. At MotoDojo you keep coming back every month. We
keep refining and polishing your skill every month. Every module has a revision component followed
by a new focused skills/techniques session. Every month you practice something old and learn
something new.

At the Dojo you don’t just get regular coaching and revision and an awesome skill set, we also supply
the bike and gear if you don’t have one. All the modules have a maximum of 5 students so you get
plenty of attention and you get to catch up with the same people every month. At MotoDojo the
most valuable thing you will get is confidence and it’s confidence that infuses into your riding and
creates the experience that we all crave , a mastery of the bike.

The cost for the Rider Development program a monthly fee of $50. When you become a Dojo club
member, all you have to do is sign in and book the module you want to do, we will always have more
than one option available.

Track based riding courses are great fun but they are expensive and depending on what experience
you bring to the course, what you learn and retain can vary greatly from rider to rider. A track based
course is typically 8 hours long, with a lunch break and incidental loss of time through subject and
location changes and session times. There is a lot of time pressure on the instructor and students
and you will have to learn at the pace set out in the course structure. You have no control over how
much practice time you get. If you need more time to practice the skills or understand the concepts
being delivered, you will need to repeat the entire course, which is a good strategy if you have the
budget. Realistically, you should expect to retain about 50% to 70% of the information presented to
you. So to get the full benefit of the entire course content you would need to repeat the course
multiple times depending on your experience. An 8 hour track based course would cover broad
subjects such as cornering and braking techniques any detailed techniques around speed control,
posture, U-turns and slow speed control can easily be overlooked. So when you repeat the course
you will be repeating the same limited range of subjects. Essentially, there is simply too much to
teach for an 8 hour course to be sufficient.

At Motodojo, we have developed a training system that allows us to give you more time and more
skills at a lower cost. Our club training system will cover the complete range of riding skills and
techniques over a series of twelve two hour sessions.
