Experience Rider Course. This is also called the (BRC 2)
Even if you've been riding for a long time, there is always something new to learn. This one day course, typically held on Saturdays or Sundays, is for riders who already own and ride a motorcycle and are interested in state-of-the-art motorcycle handling techniques or just brushing up on their safe street riding skills. Increasing numbers of seasoned riders are flocking to the Experienced Rider Course to fine-tune their riding and mental skills needed for survival in traffic.
In the classroom, you'll discuss with your peers how to balance the mental and physical aspects of safe riding, managing risk, increasing visibility and optimizing lane position. The course also covers protective gear, rider responsibility, motorcycle inspection and care, and the effects of alcohol and other drugs on riding.
On the range, you will put into practice intense riding activities, including the techniques of managing traction, controlling rear-wheel skids, stopping quickly, cornering and swerving.
You may use your own motorcycle or one of ours.
