Riding with confidence…
with Laura Smith
When women support women, incredible things happen!
As part of our commitment to providing an excellent coaching environment for female riders, RMT have devised a Women Only Motorcycle Training (WOMT) programme that is not ‘showing off’ like other courses portray, it is not trying to overwhelm you, or trying to get you to perform extreme skills on your motorbike that are well outside your comfort zone and ability level, but to give you the basics that you have forgotten or were never taught in the first place.
We always listen to you, understand your fears and frustrations and then give you a solution to overcome your concerns and worries. The coaching has proved to be extremely popular, offering the ideal private training environment for female riders. It is simple and effective guidance that makes all the difference to you, by making sure the foundations are properly in place.
Because Women Only Motorcycle Training understand your apprehensions and concerns and realise that they are very real, normal and actually cause you and your mind very real problems. We want you to conquer the gremlins and leave them well and truly behind you, forever. Start enjoying the bike again, get the buzz you first had and make sure those bad feelings are a thing of the past.
With our research, we have found out that thousands of other women have or are experiencing exactly the same issues as you. It’s the same story time and again, sayings and phrases like “I keep dropping my bike, it feels too heavy, my feet don’t reach the ground, my bike feels too big, I am scared of stopping, I’m frightened sometimes, I’m not fast enough to keep up”… These issues are easily dealt with, it isn’t always a physical problem that we will address but a mental barrier that we need to help smash down to deliver a better future.
Why we are offering it
Are you lacking in confidence when riding in a group or with people you don’t know or lacking the knowledge of what to do and when. Feel you are just trying to keep up, feel that you are holding others up and end up riding above your ability, and then feel scared on the bike?
How we are offering it
This is where Women Only Motorcycle Training come in, you don’t need to feel you are alone, don’t give up, this is just a small hurdle and we have the tools and techniques to help you to overcome all your fears once and for all.
We have the solution for all your issues. We will guide you in a no nonsense step by step process that you can apply to all of your riding situations and never feel uneasy again. Instead, be fully aware of what you are doing. Only ever do what you feel is comfortable and know what your boundaries are and ride to your potential, which will of course grow on every journey.
Using the front brake, paddling, erratic clutch control and tensing up, not only look messy but feel unstable too. When under pressure things can go wrong, but if you know the characteristics of your machine and to how to handle it, it will reduce the risk of it happening again…
