BRC2 Skills Practice
Even if you’ve been riding for some time, there’s always something new to learn. The Basic RiderCourse 2 Skills Practice is a great way to hone your skills and fine-tune the mental skills needed for survival in traffic. Using your motorcycle, you’ll put into practice the techniques of managing traction, low-speed maneuvering, stopping quickly, cornering and swerving.
Ultimate Bike Bonding
The MSF Ultimate Bike Bonding RiderCourse (UBBRC) is a partial day course designed to provide a low risk, effective, and enjoyable training event for participants who have riding experience. This course emphasizes techniques used in low-speed handling. The goal is to “bond” with the motorcycle, automating the manipulation of the controls so that more mental energy can be used for managing traffic situations. Participants must be licensed and use their personal (or borrowed, with permission), safe and street-legal motorcycle.
