        If you’ve gone to riding school and learned the basics from qualified experts like those at the Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC), then you should be quite confident in your motorcycle skills. Once you’ve become proficient in riding safely, what’s the next step a rider can take in their journey to master the art of riding two-wheeled machines?

        That’s where HSDC’s new MotoGymkhana course comes in. For the uninitiated, term is a contraction of ‘Motorcycle Gymkhana,’ which is a time trial sport where riders compete to maneuver through a tight paved course with obstacles like traffic cones.

        This type of motorsport is especially popular in Japan, where riders put their bike control skills to the test and weave their motorcycles through tight courses that require the utmost concentration to navigate. Typically, MotoGymkhana participants have to memorize the course before attempting their run, which adds an extra layer of complexity to the already challenging sport.

        MotoGymkhana events usually don’t take too much investment to join, as it only requires the rider, gear, and a street-legal motorcycle. Leather racing suits aren’t always necessary for MotoGymkhana runs, with participants not riding at high speeds in the first place due to the low-speed nature of the courses.

        If the concept of MotoGymkhana interests you, then HSDC’s newest course is definitely a must-try whether or not you plan to join such events, because the course will ensure that you master bike control.

        All bikes are welcome for use in the course; students are free to bring their own motorcycles for MotoGymkhana, as long as their ride is equipped with crash guards for safety. If you don’t have a motorcycle or would rather not bring your own, renting a small-displacement bike for the two-day course is free. If you want to learn the ins and outs of MotoGymkhana on a big bike but don’t have your own, rental for 400cc and above motorcycles is priced at P3,500.

        Course rates start at P4,000 for small bikes, while the big bike course will cost you P10,000. Eager to master the fine art of MotoGymkhana? HSDC will begin accepting students starting July 1.
