The Basic Rider Course is aimed at beginning riders of ages 14 years and older. A minimum of five hours classroom instruction and ten hours of practical riding experience on a specially designed off-street range prepares the student for riding on the streets.
Motorcycles and helmets are included in your course fee. In this course, you learn the basics of motorcycle operation, with a lot of emphasis on the special skills and mental attitude necessary for dealing with traffic. Your RiderCoach will start you off with straight-line riding, turning, shifting and stopping. You’ll gradually progress to cornering, swerving and emergency braking.
In the classroom you’ll learn about the different types of motorcycles, their controls, and how they operate. The RiderCoaches, all experienced motorcyclists, will advise you on what to wear for comfort and protection. You’ll find out how alcohol and other drugs affect your ability to ride safely.
A very important segment of the course will show you how to create your own strategy for riding in traffic, and dealing with critical situations. The course concludes with a knowledge test and skill evaluation. You’ll smile with satisfaction as the RiderCoach hands you the course completion card and certificate.
Don’t forget to bring with you:
- Eye protection sunglasses or goggles.
- Sturdy over the ankle footwear.
- Long Pants
- Long sleeve shirt and jacket
- Gloves that cover the fingers and hands
