Street Smart – Rider Perceptionpurchase now
This program is designed to help a rider improve perception. It uses highly interactive individual and group activities, and stresses the ‘Search and Evaluate’ parts of the overall Search-Evaluate-Execute (SEE) strategy used in MSF courses. The program’s kit contains a Leader’s Guide, 12 Participant’s Workbooks, a set of oversized playing cards and four floor mats, and a CD with the PowerPoint program. The PowerPoint contains the visual components of the program for classroom presentation and is divided into four parts: (1) Introduction to Perception, (2) Improving Perception, (3) Analysis of Collision Traps, and (4) Road Sign and Collision Trap Practice; the playing cards and floor mats are used so riders can check their perceptual field related to peripheral vision, useful field of view, and focus vision.

SeasonedRider – Aging Awareness Kitpurchase now

The kit consists of a new award-winning 13-minute DVD video, Facilitator Guide, and props for several learning activities, all designed to help riders assess and compensate for the effects of aging on their ability to effectively manage risk when operating a motorcycle. A SeasonedRider Module session can last from 45 to 90 minutes. Although the content and activities are generally targeted at riders over the age of 40, the sessions are appropriate for any age and any type of vehicle operator.
