What a great day today with the MotoMark1 class at Crossroads.
We had a great time and learned so very much today. Our instructors were top notch and so very helpful.
I didn't realize what a bad motorcycle rider I was until this morning, but this evening I came out as a pretty darn good motorcycle driver and so did the rest of the class.
I hope that you all will take the opportunity to attend one of the classes and learn how to drive your motorcycle as well."

Our staff combines police motor officer skills with recreational riding scenarios. We teach street survival tactics used by highway patrol and law enforcement officers. These skills are the basis for safe, confident and maximum control of your motorcycle. We offer a limited number of spaces in our classes to ensure that you receive individual instruction.
Exercises are paced to give time to practice the maneuver, get feedback, and practice some more. It is designed as a circuit so you are constantly challenging yourself and building a foundation of fundamentals and confidence with each and every lap.
Maximum Control Level 1
Level 1 is recommended for anyone who has a current motorcycle endorsement. While it is designed to be a step beyond the MSF ERC, it is applicable to any motorcyclist regardless of skill or training level. It's not another cone course; it's based on the introductory phase of hazard perception, recognition, reaction, braking techniques and lane placement used by experienced instructors and motor officers. You'll learn how to turn your motorcycle around on a two-lane road, execute back-to-back varying turns and negotiate that slow maneuvering turn into the dealership, gas station or your own driveway. Maximum Control Level 1 will teach you the techniques you need to have confidence in yourself and your bike.
The fun will begin in the classroom with a very informative presentation and then we will move to the driving range. Our morning session concentrates on head, eyes, clutch and throttle working together for exact bike placement. This technique allows you to execute precision maneuvers with maximum control that will make you safer and impress anyone that sees you handle your bike. In the afternoon, we'll teach braking techniques as we simulate real world scenarios. The next time you have an emergency stop, you'll know exactly how to react and how your motorcycle will respond. Most importantly, you'll know what skills to practice to DRIVE safely when you're under pressure. Afterward we'll take you on the road in real traffic where you'll learn to read the natural road signs you have always seen but never known how to properly interpret.
Level 1 will introduce you to the rigorous law enforcement motor officer training that's designed to keep officers safe, hour after hour, day after day, in any weather, any traffic. Level 2 will continue this training. You are going to work hard, DRIVE hard, think hard, and challenge yourself. You'll make friends, laugh a lot, and you'll bond with your motorcycle by knowing exactly how it handles when the CHiPs are down, so to speak.
Maximum Control Level 2
Level 2 is recommended for anyone who has taken the Level 1 course and it is applicable to any motorcyclist that wants to continue their life-long learning process of skill enhancement and training to the next level. Our staff combines more technical and challenging police motor officer skills with real world scenarios. It's based on the combination of braking, down shifting and proper set ups while completing back to back change of direction turns as if you were going after a violator yourself!! Maximum Control Level 2 will enhance and work on more detailed phases of hazard perception, recognition, reaction, braking techniques with real-world scenarios and curve skills used by experienced instructors and motor officers. You will learn how to negotiate congested traffic in an assertive, authoritative driving manner just like professional motor officers. Level 2 will teach you the more advanced-level techniques you need to have confidence in yourself and your bike.
The fun will begin in the classroom with a very informative review of Level 1 and presentation of Level 2. and then we will move to the driving range. Our morning session concentrates on more enhanced head, eyes, clutch and throttle working together for exact bike placement in more technical areas. This technique allows you to execute more precision maneuvers with maximum control that will make you safer and impress anyone that sees you drive your bike with purpose.
In the afternoon, we'll emphasize braking techniques and evasive maneuvers as we simulate real world scenarios that require you to take evasive action, such as cars failing to yield the right of way. The next time you have an emergency stop, you'll know exactly how to react and how your motorcycle will respond. Most importantly, you'll know what skills to practice to DRIVE safely when you're under pressure.
