"The training that I received from MotoMark1 played a large part in saving the life of my son (riding pillion) and I when a SUV made a left hand turn merely yards in front of us. Without thought, the emergency braking I had practiced many times in the training, stopped us without injury to us or damage to the bike. Talk about a near miss! I am convinced that without a well maintained machine and my training, my son and I would not have walked away from that event."

Stayin' Safe with MotoMark1

MotoMark1 is proud to be among the few training companies selected and certified to conduct the Stayin’ Safe method of on-street training. Stayin’ Safe is recognized nationwide as the premier road-based rider-training program and pioneered on-street rider training in the United States to introduce advanced “road reading” techniques in real-world environments.

Chalk TalkThe Stayin’ Safe experience combines the pleasures of motorcycle touring with real world, real-time advanced skills coaching. Each training tour offers riders of all motorcycle types a fun opportunity to enjoy some of the best riding roads in the country while learning critical visual strategies and techniques for smoother, safer and more enjoyable riding. These advanced skills tours are comprised of routes through a mix of mountain twisties, rolling farmland, small towns, and limited stretches of traffic and multi-lane highway riding, providing riders with a diverse mix of riding and training scenarios. With a target ratio of three or four student riders per instructor, the MotoMark1 team will use one-way radio communication to provide expert coaching commentary in real-world riding situations. This approach enables riders to learn and apply techniques en route in real time. In addition to the real-time coaching, our tour leaders/coaches conduct “chalk talks”, creating virtual classrooms along the roadside. These breaks provide opportunities to illustrate concepts, discuss techniques, introduce new material and address any questions participants may have. The average day covers approximately 150-175 miles.

Stayin'Safe

Stayin’ Safe was developed by internationally recognized motorcycle safety expert Lawrence “Larry” Grodsky in 1993 and has been in continual operation ever since. Today, Stayin’ Safe is owned and operated by Eric Trow, veteran Stayin’ Safe instructor, author of the popular monthly Riding Well column in Rider magazine, and recipient of the AMA Outstanding Road Rider Award for his work in motorcycle safety. Trow is also a proud graduate of the MotoMark1 Basic Officer Training program.

Stayin’ Safe “Mayberry/Mount Pilot” Training Tour (2 day)

Remember The Andy Griffith Show? You know, the one that brought Andy, Barney, Opie, Aunt Bee and Floyd the Barber into our living rooms? (and don't forget Otis!)

MotoMark1 proudly blends the nostalgia of this iconic North Carolina gem with advanced motorcycle skills training for a fun and valuable learning experience.

Snappy Lunch

The training tour originates from our Burlington, NC Headquarters and, over the course of two days, travels some of the best roads to be found in NC. The tour will end in Mayberry— America’s favorite small town—where there is much to see, do and eat. Although our tour ends in Mayberry, you may want to hang around, book a night of lodging and spend more time to explore this walk back in time (the pork chop sandwich at Snappy Lunch is a must! It was a favorite of Andy's).

Of course, advance skills training is what we’re all about and this tour gives you plenty. Training will help participants learn to ride with greater purpose, build situational awareness and ability to read the road, know precisely where to position the motorcycle within the lane for the greatest advantage, effectively manage speed, build cornering confidence and even predict the future. The second day will focus on establishing ultimate smoothness and precision by introducing advanced brake/throttle techniques, body steering, smooth shifting techniques, slow speed skills as well as controlled evasive and advanced braking practices. It’s a training event jam packed with valuable skills and a fun ride back in time.
