Performance Rider Training

Perth Hills Motorcycle Training gives you the opportunity to explore your bikes potential as well as your own without being limited by speed limits on our roads. The Performance Rider Training event is targeted at licensed riders. We provide a relaxed, friendly, safe, and non-intimidating environment with some of the best coaching from experienced trainers to introduce you to riding on a road track.

This event is perfect for those who want some freedom on their motorcycle, but not quite ready or interested in the bigger tracks. We don't care what bike you have! We love diversity! So long as it doesn't exceed the legal noise limit (94dB), just make sure your exhaust is baffled and you'll be fine!

Coaching is available to aid you in developing your skills, but it's also entirely up to you! Ride your own ride, go slow or fast it doesn't matter, work on what you want to work on. Come out, ride with us, have a play! And most importantly, have fun.

We run this event over the course of 2 hours and will be conducted in small groups of 6 riders each (max 12 riders plus 2 instructors). Each group will be out for 10 minute rounds on the track and then 10 minutes of rest alternating until end of session.

We'll keep you hydrated too, we have an esky that will be stashed with cold water! Riding motorcycles is hard work! Especially at the track! Motorcycle engines need fluids, but so does the human body! So be sure to to keep your levels topped up throughout the event.

We encourage safe riding and that you should not ride outside of your ability. We also do not want you feeling out of your depth or intimidated, therefore our groups are broken down into Beginner and Intemediate.

Spectators are absolutely welcome at no cost. Cameras also welcome, but we ask that they be secured with a secondary tether as debris on the track presents a hazard to other riders.

To get a taste of what to expect, checkout our little video we made from past Performance Rider Training events.

Who can go?

If you are a competent road rider, and want to explore your own potential beyond the limits permitted on the road, then come on down and take your skills to the next level.

This is an introductory level track session, if you are an experienced track day rider you might not find this is your usual pace. But we encourage you to come on down anyway, it's an awesome tight road based track, flex that throttle hand, and have some fun...

Attendees from a previous Performance Rider Training Event

Prefer a more private, tailored introduction to the track?

We can do that too! If you can rally up a few mates to join you, we can get you booked in on your own private track session with tuition. This type of tuition gives you more time with the instructor, and can be tailored to your groups level. This is definitely a great option if you have never been to the track before and would prefer to be around people you know. Hosting a private event with the assistance of Perth Hills Motorcycle Training, we'll ease you into things gently and develop your confidence.

If a private training session with your group is more your style, simply message us with your request, as we'll be happy make arrangements with you.

We've done it before, and everyone had an absolute blast! We booked a private track session for Chloe who wanted to surprise Darren on his Birthday. Checkout our cool little video of the day!

What should I bring?

When attending our Performance Rider Training Session you'll want to be sure you bring:

Pre-Event Preparation

Before attending our Performance Rider Training Session you'll want to be sure to:

  • Perform a quick bike check, your motorcycle must be in road worthy condition.
  • Check for fluid leaks, as this could cause a hazard for you and other attendees. Motorcycles discovered to have any leaks will not be permitted to ride on any venue road surfaces.
  • Check your fluid levels, that your motorcycle has oil, coolant etc...
  • Check your tyres for wear, make sure they are in good condition, have tread, no cracks, eggs and that the compound hasn't dried out due to aging.
  • Check your tyre pressures and make sure they are as per manufacturers recommendation for the street.
  • Check that your exhaust baffle is installed (See noise constraints below).

Attending the event

We ask that attendees arrive at the venue 30mins before the Event's advertised start time so we can get you all signed in, run through our pre-track briefing, divide riders into two groups etc... This maximises your time on the track.

Noise constraints

As per the conditions of use by the venue, we must adhere to a strict 94dB sound restrictions as detailed here.

Is my bike too noisy?

The general rule of thumb is if you think it's too noisy, then maybe it is. Most aftermarket exhausts are fine, but if you have taken the baffle out, then pop it back in... We can't run the event with obnoxiously loud exhausts.

Noise tests will be performed during the event. If your motorcycle exceeds the 94dB limit, you will be asked to run in a higher gear to bring the noise down. Failure to comply with this instruction, or your bike is still too loud, you'll have to come off the track.

You can test this yourself by using a Sound Meter App on your phone to measure the sound level. There are many to choose from, so here's a selection with good reviews:

Simply venture to a relatively open area (to minimise echo) with your motorcycle and bring along a friend... Get your friend to hold the phone and measure the sound level from around 20-30 meters away, while you give your bike a few good revs... If your pipe exceeds 94dB, then your bike is too loud.

Where are the Performance Training Events held?

We hold these events at the Driver Risk Management training facility (formally RAC Driver Training Centre) on Grogan Road near the Airport.

When and how often are these events held?

Ideally we would run these events as often as possible, we strongly believe that we become safer riders by being better riders, but like all things it is entirely subject to demand and we have limited spaces. Currently we aim to run one Rider Enhancement Course a Month and a Performance Training Session fortnightly, we need the word to get out and as the interest comes in, we'll establish our goals.

The best thing to do is head on over to Facebook and checkout the events tab. We post and manage our events from there, so if you give our page a follow, you will be notified of all our upcoming events.

Otherwise, feel free to express your interest by contacting us now.

What does the track layout look like?

The Driver Risk Management training facility hosts a modest tight road faring track which closely resembles conditions you'd find in every day road riding, making it perfect for our rider training courses. While the overall geometry is fairly tight, it contains a few sweepers, interconnecting corners that curve into opposite directions and two prominent straights which all up, flows very nicely and definitely presents riders with plenty of challenging oportunities to test newly developed skills.

Check out our mud map below... If you would like to see us run a couple of laps of the track, check out our video below.
