Yamaha owners who want to sharpen their riding skills can remain true to the blue tuning fork brand at Stay Upright.
National motorcycle trainers, Stay Upright, have partnered with Yamaha Motor Australia to provide YZF-R1 and R6 sportsbikes as well as the learner-legal MT-03 street motards and Ténéré adventure bikes.
The bikes join Stay Upright’s fleet of 200 motorcycles they use to train 25,000 riders a year.
The neutral-handling MT-03 will be used to provide learner and provisional rider training, while the supersports models will be used in advanced riding courses and the 660 and 1200 Ténérés for Stay Upright’s adventure riding courses which I’ve done and can highly recommend.
YMA GM Steven Cotterell points out Yamaha already offers comprehensive training for dirt bike riders with the Yamaha Institute of Motocross and their ATV Training Institute handles farm and industrial workers safety training.
Stay Upright centres can be found in NSW at Clyde, Rouse Hill, Bathurst, Queanbeyan and Wagga with adventure courses at Dargle; in Queensland on the Gold and Sunshine coasts, Mt Cotton, Cairns and Nerang; and in Victoria at Hoppers Crossing, Ballarat and Geelong.
Meanwhile, Yamaha’s Australian Institute of Motocross in conjunction with Moto
Development will conduct a two-day Moto Master Class featuring AMA superstar Michael Byrne.
Australian MXoN team member Byrne joins Y-AIM motocross level two coaches Shane Booth and Chris Urquhart plus MX legend Stephen Gall at Appin on Nov 30-Dec 1 and Coolum on Dec 7-8.
