RIDER ACADEMY

BASIC RIDERCOURSE 2 - SKILLS PRACTICE

The Basic RiderCourse 2 is a half-day course for endorsed riders who want to become more comfortable riding their own motorcycles.

Perfect for recent BRC graduates, great as a spring refresher, to sharpen skills, or to get more comfortable with that new or new-to-you bike, this course may also be taken while carrying a dedicated passenger. (Rider and passenger may not share riding responsibilities).

Students will explore risk management and assessment strategies, and practice on-cycle drills with an emphasis on cornering, braking and swerving. Total instructional time is 5 hours, conducted on our practice range.

Student Requirements

As a minimum, each student must be able to ride and balance a bicycle.

Each student MUST provide and wear the following required safety gear:

  • Helmet - DOT approved.
  • Eye protection. Glasses (prescription, not fashion), sunglasses or safety glasses.
  • Long sleeves in the form of a jacket, sweatshirt or a long sleeve t-shirt. Think layers. If it is hot you will want to take your jacket or sweatshirt off and you need to have long sleeves for a variety of reasons.
  • Gloves. Full-finger leather or riding gloves. Absolutely NO fingerless gloves allowed.
  • Pants that aren’t loose around the ankles. Leave your bell bottoms at home.
