Motorcycle safety programs available at Roar on the Shore

Local News

Even an experienced driver can learn new methods to stay safe on the road.  

At Roar on the Shore, instructors are giving visitors a preview of the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program.  It’s a statewide free training service with two locations in the Erie area.  Motorcycle safety experts are using what’s called a skid bike to demonstrate what you can do to prevent an accident. 

Bobby Fitzmayer, of the PA Motorcycle Safety Program, says, “With this training aid, I can actually put a motorcyclist in a reduced-traction environment to simulate riding on wet roads after it rains and I can teach them how to maintain control of the motorcycle to avoid crashing.” 

There are different courses depending on your experience level, from the beginning rider to the advanced.
