The Advanced RiderCourseSM is a
one-day course that complements a rider's basic skills and helps with personal
risk assessment. It includes a fast-paced classroom segment with several
interactive activities to improve perception and hazard awareness. Range
exercises enhance both basic skills and crash avoidance skills. Improving
braking and cornering finesse is emphasized. The course is beneficial for
riders on any type of street motorcycle.
This course is for riders with at least one
year and 1,000 miles of riding experience (or are a BRC or IRC graduate with at
least six months and 500 miles of experience), who can provide a street legal
motorcycle that is in good mechanical repair, and have a valid motorcycle
license. A DOT approved helmet, proof of current motorcycle registration or
written approval from the owner of a motorcycle not your own, valid insurance
and a completed motorcycle safety inspection checklist (checklist provided
prior to the class or here) are required without exception.
