In this episode I talk with Jon DelVecchio, a family-man and high school educator who also owns the Street Skills LLC motorcycle school that he founded in 2015, which is a New York State licensed driving school and an AMA chartered organization. Jon has combined his passion for motorcycles, his 20 years of riding experience, and his 10 years as a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Rider Coach to build his motorcycle school and to develop his “Cornering Confidence” method of motorcycle street rider instruction. In his “Cornering Confidence” book, curriculum, and online course, Jon has taken to heart the MSF motto of "the more you know, the better it gets", to help riders enjoy their riding more, get better control of their motorcycle, and thus reduce rider anxiety and make them more successful riders on the street. His method is designed to get students up to speed, step by step, on trail braking and other techniques to make them safer riders in the corners. “Cornering Confidence” is self-paced education, with direct support from Jon as needed. This is a unique approach to motorcycle skills development which dovetails in with the other teaching methods and schools that you may already be familiar with.

This episode features an interview with Hayley Bell, the founder and the main driving force behind the Women Riders World Relay (WRWR), a worldwide pursuit "to ignite a global sisterhood of inspirational women to promote courage, adventure, unity and passion for biking from all corners of the world and do something that’s never been done before to this scale." I also share what I have learned so far from Keith Code's "A Twist of the Wrist" books and DVDs, discuss a new part I installed on my Z900RS, talk about a new Dainese jacket that could really help protect you in a crash, and give some details about a non-motorcycle podcast that I appeared on as a guest to help promote motorcycling to people that don't ride motorcycles.

This episode is an interview with Fast Eddie, the creator of the Motojitsu program, which he developed to help riders get more knowledgeable about motorcycling, and more importantly to practice their riding skills through a graduated series of exercises or "belts" that will help them master the control of any motorcycle and enable them to ride much safer on the street.
