Advanced Rider Training
Advanced Rider Training was started by Sgt Ryan Austin (Ret) in 2006 after years of work as a Police Motorcycle Master Instructor and Expert in major collision investigations. This unique combination of Police Motorcycle Instruction and Expert in major collision investigations is rare in Policing and allowed Sgt Austin (Ret) a different perspective and a deeper look at motorcycle collisions. The analysis of collisions and causation, over and over through the years, led to a realization that fundamental skills were missing in Civilian Riders, that were being taught in the Police Motorcycle programs.
This realization led to the creation of the Advanced Rider Training course, with the purpose to give all Riders the critical skills needed to not only be better more confident riders, but to learn and master these critical skills needed to avoid collisions.
The program originated in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and has spread to numerous cities across Canada and the United States.
Sgt Austin’s (Ret) background as a Police motorcycle Master Instructor; certified to Instruct & Ride on-duty on BMW, Harley Davidson, Honda, Victory, Kawasaki, and Suzuki allows the Advanced Rider Training course and the instructors to teach riders of all levels and on all motorcycle brands. The skills are the same, but each model has unique characteristics, and the instructors are trained to help riders get the most from their machine and truly master the ride.
