    Greetings ADV Riders!

    My name is Jon DelVecchio and I am the lead instructor for the Street Skills Riding Academy in Rochester, NY. This thread’s purpose is to keep ADVriders up-to-date on school activities, offer learning opportunities and answer any questions or comments.

    What is the Street Skills Riding Academy? The SSRA's mission is to create a community of riders seeking more enjoyment through skill development. If that can be accomplished, improved safety will follow.


    ******************** Mobile Riding School ********************

    Street Skills is breaking new ground with the "Mobile Riding School" concept. The idea is to set up at any location within minutes to provide on-road instruction to small groups of riders.

    The school does not teach fundamental riding skills. The focus is on taking experienced riders to the next level in enjoyment and safety. Instruction can be tailored to fit rider needs relating to time, cost and skill goals. Mobile unit services can be reserved by groups or riders can attend SSRA scheduled events.

    With a three week notice and minimum of 8 participants, this innovative and enjoyable skill-building experience can be brought to your group. The school can accommodate up to 16 riders over a two-day period.

    Note: ADV is a worldwide forum, so those outside Western NY have less access to my school. However, I’m willing to travel and expand the school’s reach. Or consider coming to the Rochester, NY area to take the classes. Our Finger Lakes Region has some really nice roads and topography.


    ******************** On-Road Courses ********************

    Street Skills currently offers two on-road courses for intermediate to advanced riders. The goals are to expand or refresh knowledge.

    Courses...
    • are conducted on actual roads using radio communication.
    • are 3-hours in length.
    • have a max of 4 students.
    • have tuition price of $99 per rider.

    Back Road Skills Course
    Cornering is an elusive skill that is never truly mastered by most riders. Corners are also where most single vehicle motorcycle crashes occur. This course teaches what hazards to look for on twisty roads and how to decrease risk and increase enjoyment.

    Traffic Management Course
    Traffic skills are never truly mastered by most riders. The majority of multi-vehicle motorcycle crashes occur when vehicles violate the rider's right-of-way. This course teaches what hazards to look for in traffic and motorcycle positioning to decrease risk.

    Feedback received from on-road course participants:

    What was one thing you took from the course?
    • "Looseness. It's something that gets overlooked by more experienced riders I think."
    • "Braking skills"
    • "Body positioning"
    • "Cornering"
    About the on-road format:
    • "This format worked really well. It really helps reinforce what you're hearing and how to do it."
    • The visual/audio of coming up to a turn watching the instructor do the turn and listening to him talk his way through it really helped execute the skills being talked about."
    • "Worked well. Incorporated different learning styles. Gave participants a chance to reflect on what was said."
    • "I am fan of this method, it makes it easy to learn and practice many of the techniques by mimicking the instructor, who is riding in front of you."

    ******************** On-Track Courses ********************

    This ADV thread highlights the SSRA track course at NYST on July 20, 2015, which went very well. It was a course tailored to hone street riding and cornering skills. Using a heavenly racetrack, the course was full of unique experiences for those seeking to build confidence in their typical road riding activities.

    If groups are interested in setting up a street riders’ track day at the New York Safety Track or another venue, I’d enjoy making that happen. Contact me to get the wheels in motion. More info on track courses here.

    Blacktop Friday Deals!

    Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is a lousy day for motorcyclists. If we're lucky up north, the weather will be decent enough for one more ride. There's usually never anything good for us at the stores on this day. Well, this deal is just for you...mark your calendars...

    On November 27, 2015 only the following "Blacktop Friday" deals will be available. If you are planning to take an on-road Street Skills course in "Back Road Skills" or "Traffic Management" in 2016, this is the best tuition price of the year.

    Course locations are usually within a 60 mile radius of Rochester, NY. However, anywhere in New York and Pennsylvania may also be possible with enough interest. Contact Jon directly to set up courses near you.

    These deals are perfect for clubs and riding groups. Click on the deal image for more details.
