Gaining Early Advanced Riding Skills

GEARS Registration is open with an all new program for 2018! This year, the MOA Foundation will offer two levels and two forms of training. First, we will have the GEARS training many of you know and may have experienced your selves. This training will be provided by long-time instructors and our old friends at Dirt Bike Tech. This program will be divided into two groups, depending upon the needs and desires of the riders. For new or very inexperienced riders or those who wish to learn from scratch, the basic GEARS instruction is for you. For those who are a little more advanced in their abilities, Dirt Bike Tech will offer training that is suitably more advanced with a more aggressive riding course.

Whether novice or slightly skilled, students will need to bring proper riding clothes, to include helmet, goggles or glasses, long sleeved shirt, long pants, appropriate riding footwear and gloves. If you are not sure, don’t hesitate to ask what is appropriate. Motorcycles of appropriate size will be available for each rider. There is a total of twelve slots available for this portion of the program. The age range for this training is 14 – 26.

Second, for those riders with more experience and who are willing and able to provide their own motorcycles (licensed motorcycles), along with proper riding gear, renowned Street Masters will be putting on a course in connection with the GEARS program. This is the very same Street Masters that will be providing advanced rider training to MOA members later in the Rally. There are twenty-five slots available for this portion of the program. The age range for this group is 16 – 26. A motorcycle endorsement is required.

As in past years, all registrants will be required to submit a registration fee of $50.00. There are no refunds for those who register but fail to show. But, also as in past years, this fee is completely refundable upon successful completion of the course.

It is our ambition to fill every seat (so to speak) and provide this early training to 37 participants this year. Register online now!

For any other questions you may have, feel free to contact Will McHardy, MOA Foundation Director and GEARS Committee Chair.
