ProRider Advanced Skills Course NEW!

This course is intended for experienced motorcycle riders who
have a firm grasp of the basic skills of operating a motorcycle,
but desire to become a better, safer, more confident rider. This
is a challenging course, so riders must have physical stamina to
withstand a full day on the range. Riders will learn to “bond” with
their personal motorcycle, becoming familiar with the bike’s full
capabilities and limitations. Practice braking, evasive maneuvers,
and hazard avoidance exercises that may save your ride from
serious damage, injury or death. This course will incorporate the
techniques learned and mastered by police motorcycle officers
and will improve riding abilities of even the most seasoned
rider. At the end of the course, successful participants will
receive a completion certificate, having achieved a refined skill
set and newfound confidence. Prerequisites/Requirements:
Must have intermediate skills and license with a motorcycle
endorsement. Must have your own motorcycle (must be street
legal) with valid registration, inspection where applicable, and
valid insurance coverage. Must provide your own protective
gear including DOT approved helmet, above the ankle boots (no
sneakers), gloves, durable long pants (no athletic pants of any
kind). (8 hours) Course R 06560.
