To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!
