Advanced Rider Course / NOT a get your license course.

The ARC as it's called is a one day 8 hour advanced riding course intended for riders who have over 2500 miles of riding experience and already are licensed. You must use your OWN MOTORCYCLE for this course. This is NOT a " get your license course"!!!


This course was initially designed for sport bike riders but the techniques presented in this class can extremely benefit all riders. Although some techniques do pertain to higher speed riding they are NOT intended to promote higher speeds, but give you the benefit of better control, sharpening your skills and making you a safer rider.


Morning time will consist of roughly 3 hours of classroom pertaining to skill assessment, risk management and riding strategies. Power point presentations and student participation are the keys to making this portion fun and informative.


Late morning and afternoon portions will be range time and getting to know your motorcycle better than ever before. An inspection (TLOCS) will be performed to ensure a safe environment for all riders. Exercises start with basic control, moving on to quick stops from higher speeds and adding in an evade procedure. Curve adjustments, cornering and swerving, multiple curves, decreasing radius curves and gap analysis will round out the day.
