Norway to Use Keith Code's Motorcyle Cornering Technology in Nationwide Training and Testing Programs
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23, 2002; Keith Code, founder of the California Superbike Schools (www.superbikeschool.com), reports that motorcyclists in Norway will soon be riding with a lot more skill and confidence. Five members of the Norwegian Department of Public Roads who attended Code's classes in Rockingham, UK last August announced they will incorporate elements of Code's cornering technology into Norway's motorcycle operators' licensing program.
"The Norwegians were particularly impressed with our Steering Drill, which is effective in improving a rider's ability to quickly and safely maneuver his vehicle away from dangerous situations encountered on the highway," said Code.
Code said that subsequent to their school sessions the Norwegian Department of Public Roads has become highly focused on riding technique as an important element in the public education of riders. According to Code, new licensing standards will require Norwegian cyclists to demonstrate basic riding and safety techniques which, until now, were only taught through Code's Superbike School. The new techniques will be incorporated into the existing government approved instructional materials used in driving schools throughout Norway.
"I'm extremely pleased that Norway wants to incorporate our procedures into their riding program," said Code. "Hopefully, Norway's program will eventually serve as a model for state sanctioned motorcycle instruction throughout the world."
Code said that, to his knowledge, this is the first time instructional techniques developed by a private individual or group have been incorporated into state sanctioned motorcycle instruction programs.
"This is the first time any government has undertaken a program to provide its citizens with a simple technology for riding more confidently and safely," said Code. "It's been a long, long time coming."
