This guide for motorcycle safety instructors is intended to provide essential information in a usable format for teaching the basic knowledge and skills to (1) maintain the motorcycle in a safe riding condition; (2) develop an ability to handle the motorcycle in a safe and sane manner; (3) develop defensive driving techniques; and (4) understand the legal and moral responsibilities assumed by the operator. After presenting an overview of the organization and administration of the guide, nine instructional units are outlined. The first four units cover classroom instruction on the following topics: an introduction to motorcycle safety education; knowing the motorcycle; riding the motorcycle; and buying and insuring the motorcycle. The last five units provide guidelines for teaching range operation. The range operation units include: an introduction to range operation; the first ride; basic motorcycle driving skills; routine riding situations; and a series of range exercises. (BM)
