WHY DO YOUR CBT AT MUTT MOTORCYCLES?
YOU NEVER FORGET YOUR FIRST MOTORCYCLE
The whole ethos behind Mutt is to deliver you a bike that’s easy to ride and maintain, affordable to buy and run, whilst giving you the same feel and sound of a classically styled custom machine.
Each bike gets the same attention to detail as the big, high-end customs we’ve spent many years building.
We’ve been building serious custom bikes for a very long time. But due to the size, and expense of high end, vintage motorcycles, the custom bike scene can seem quite inaccessible. We wanted to change that.
So, we started applying that same build quality and style to small cc bikes that are easy to sling round busy city streets, bend round country lanes, and charge on the open road. This would take small cc motorcycles to the next level, and our approach meant building them a little differently.
What You'll Learn
The basics of motorcycle controls and handling
You'll learn how a motorcycle works; the controls, maintenance and safety checks you should conduct before riding and how to move and park your bike.
How to safely ride and control a motorcycle
The instructor will teach you maneuvers, braking, observations, clutch control and gear changing (on a manual motorcycle). You'll spend a lot of time riding around cones, practicing different road riding scenarios and techniques.
Road riding theory
You'll be shown diagrams and discuss the correct theory of how to ride safely on the road and asked questions about what to do.
Practical road riding
You'll spend at least 2 hours riding on a variety of roads with your instructor, who will give directions through a radio earpiece.

Why Get Your CBT?
Taking a motorcycle training course can teach you the necessary skills, such as how to properly control the motorcycle, how to manoeuvre through different road conditions, how to avoid obstacles, and how to respond in emergencies. Additionally, it can also teach you defensive riding techniques, which can help you avoid accidents and stay safe on the road.
When you ride a motorcycle, you are more vulnerable to accidents than other motorists. Wearing protective gear such as a helmet, jacket, and gloves can reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accident. However, it's crucial to also ride responsibly and obey traffic rules and regulations.
Safe riding habits can also help you avoid accidents and injuries. Some examples of safe riding practices include maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles, being aware of your surroundings, using turn signals, and obeying speed limits.
Taking a motorcycle training course and practising safe riding habits can help you stay safe on the road while enjoying the freedom and excitement of riding a motorcycle.
