Besides lectures, riders will receive a wealth of practical skills training to improve their situational awareness and safety.
Riders can receive training on personal protective equipment as well as a system of checks to ensure their motorcycles are safe to operate. The inspection, called T-CLOCS, stands for tires and wheels, controls, lights and electrics, oil and other fluids, chassis and stands. Safety experts recommend performing the inspection before every ride and rider coaches from the Wright Wriders and Green Knights will be available to walk attendees through the process.
There will also be a blind spot practical demonstration as well as a slow-ride competition where riders will vie for the taking the longest time to go from point a to point b – the gyroscopic force of spinning wheels at speed helps motorcycles stay upright, going slow is a challenge.
Multiple food trucks and nearly a dozen local vendors will be available from 10 a.m. on through the conclusion of the event.
Motorcycle Safety Day meets the annual pre-season briefing requirement for military riders with civilian riders highly encouraged to attend. Military riders who attend the briefings and participate in the group ride will satisfy their five-year motorcycle refresher training requirement. The 88th Air Base Wing commander has designated this event as an alternate-duty location.
