Safety Workshop: Rider Perception

by Bob Leitch

Motorcycle riding requires a lot more than coordination and balance. It requires a keen perceptive ability that helps a rider see and evaluate all the important clues to respond effectively in traffic. Poor perception puts a rider at a disadvantage.

Our Safety session on “Rider Perception” will be held Saturday, February 19 at Mike Dangschat’s house starting at 10:00 AM. The goal of the session is to acquaint participants will the important aspects of visual perception, and how the brain and eyes work together to manage risk. The program is an interactive and fun session, not a boring lecture. The session is planned for an hour and a half. Coffee and refreshments will be provided.

In order to prepare enough handouts, please register for the workshop by return e-mail or calling Bob
Leitch before February 16. Please note that we can handle 24 -30 participants, so if we get too large
a response we may have to limit numbers. Mike’s address and any other administrative details will be
sent to participants before the session.
