The Yamaha Champions Riding School’s group of No. 1 plate holders, class champions, club champions, track record-holders and national champions, including two-time AMA Champion Nick Ienatsch, top-10 AMA Superbike finisher Ken Hill and World Superbike and AMA Superbike champion Scott “Mr. Daytona” Russell, will step off the track and onto the stage at select upcoming Progressive International Motorcycle Shows to conduct advanced motorcycle riding clinics aimed at helping motorcycle riders of all skill levels.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to join everyone at the upcoming Progressive International Motorcycle Shows,” said Ienatsch. “Our goal with the stage seminars is to help riders of all levels improve by learning techniques that work as the pace comes up or the grip goes down. There’s so much misinformation in this sport: ideas that just don’t work and techniques that are literally the opposite of what the best riders in the world do. We’re on a crusade to get America riding better and that means faster and safer — mostly safer!”
The Yamaha Champions Riding School instructors will engage audiences with “Goofus and Gallant,” covering good and bad motorcycle riding techniques; “Crashers Anonymous,” where audience members come up and tell their crash stories and get advice; “What’s Your Problem?” where audience members ask questions and receive expert answers; “A Day at the School,” where the instructors walk through the Yamaha Champions Riding School program explaining why they do what they do; and “Champions Habits,” where instructors talk about why the best do what they do.
The Yamaha Champions Riding School instructors will appear at Progressive International Motorcycle Shows at Seattle, Wash., Dec. 16-18; Novi, Mich., Jan. 6-8, 2012; Washington, D.C., Jan. 13-15; New York, N.Y., Jan. 20-22; Cleveland, Ohio, Jan. 27-29; and Chicago, IL., Feb. 10-12.
