Basic RiderCourse2SM (BRC2)

The Basic RiderCourse2SM (BRC2) provides critiqued and coached practice for experienced cyclists riding their own motorcycles. The one-day (about 8 hours long) course is spent almost entirely on riding instruction. This riding course is only for experienced, properly licensed riders riding their own motorcycles.

What the BRC2 Will Do for You

  • Increase skills, knowledge, safety awareness and enjoyment
  • Become familiar with motorcycle dynamics, survival strategies, motorcycle loading, emergency braking, countersteering, counterweighting and accessory selection
  • Practice precise steering techniques and correct braking methods under controlled conditions with Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) certified instructors
  • Gain the knowledge necessary for further development of safe riding skills
