					Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic Launches Superadvanced Motorcycle
Training in the UK

The Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic (Total Control ARC) in Stratford
upon Avon has officially opened this week.

Stratford upon Avon, UK, April 26, 2010 -- The   Total Control Advanced
Riding Clinic (Total Control ARC) in Stratford   upon Avon has officially
opened this week. The American champion rider,   Lee Parks, created his
unique take on motorcycle training in 1994. It   is now well established in
the USA and, after some test events, it is now   available in the UK.

Simultaneously with the launch of the Total Control ARC, is the launch of
its website at http://www.totalcontroltraining.co.uk

The term “Superadvanced” was specially coined to describe the type of
training given at the clinic and to set it apart from what it is often
confused with: “Advanced (or Enhanced) Riding”.

In the UK, Advanced Riding is where a policeman or a Royal Society for
the Prevention of Accidents instructor, or an Institute of Advanced
Motorists instructor would take someone out onto the roads and show them
how they can minimise hazards through using “The System”.

“This is not what we do,” explains Duncan Mackillop (Principal of Total
Control in the UK) who delivers the Superadvanced motorcycle training
itself. “What we teach here is fundamentally different to the methods
taught in every other riding school in the country. They teach,
essentially, about planning for and managing the hazards that you would
encounter every day when out riding your bike.”

Although Total Control does cover how riders interact with the
environment, especially the management of corners, it also covers, in
much greater depth, how the rider and machine interact. It is very
difficult to cover these elements in depth out on the road as the
environment is ever changing and the feedback loop between rider and
machine changes with the environment. Total Control provides a consistent
environment in the form of its training ground, so that the feedback
between rider and bike is more obvious. This feedback that results from
the consistent environment, is at the heart of the practical element of
Total Control.

Another major difference is that, with “The System”, riders have little
opportunity to discover how their mental state has such a profound effect
on their riding. The Total Control Clinics give a series of short
lectures between the practical exercises, that show how mental states
such as fear, can be detrimental to the safe conduct of their ride due to
their effect upon certain factors such as throttle control, body position
and traction. The lectures also give a rider a much better understanding
of how the inputs they make to the bike affect their ability to remain in
control.

“As we say at the beginning of the clinic, Total Control teaches you the
“real stuff” that you just can’t learn in school. i.e. you learn a lot
from normal Advanced Riding schools, but with Total Control, you begin to
understand the really important things that simply cannot be learnt out
on the road. If “The System” is represented by Advanced training, then
Total Control is represented by Superadvanced training, as it expands
upon what you have already learned from Advanced training,” adds Duncan.

Total Control ARC recommends that every rider get hold of a copy of Total
Control: High-Performance Street Riding Techniques by Lee Parks, which is
the second-biggest selling motorcycle-riding self-help book in the US,
second only to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Guide To Motorcycling
Excellence, (the American version of the UK’s Roadcraft - The Police
Riders Guide to Better motorcycling). The book can be ordered online
through Total Control ARC’s website
http://www.totalcontroltraining.co.uk.

About Total Control ARC:
The Total Control ARC has a solution for those experienced riders who
want to be able to further enhance their skills in a controlled
environment with expert instruction. The Total Control System was devised
by motorcycle championship-winner and Chief instructor, Lee Parks, who
had been racing for 25 years. He then spent five years as the editor and
chief test rider of Motorcycle Consumer News where he road tested every
new street motorcycle available in the U.S. and became one of the top
performance-testing journalists in the world. Lee's staff of personally-
trained instructors make Total Control available all over the U.S. and
Europe. In the UK, Total Control Superadvanced Riding Clinics are
delivered by Duncan MacKillop and Penny Glover, both of whom have a
wealth of experience in Superadvanced rider training.
