Motorcycling 101

Do you want to find out why motorcycling is FUN? Or prepare for the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (“MSF”) Basic RiderCourse? This is the way to start!

This 2-hour introductory course covers the basics of motorcycle operation from what type of protective gear to wear to straight-line riding.  Motorcycles are provided and students will be riding!

  • Review the protective clothing and equipment to wear while on a motorcycle.
  • Learn how to locate and use each of the key motorcycle controls.
  • Demonstrate basic motorcycle operation and finish with straight-line riding.
  • There is no driver’s license or motorcycle permit requirement
  • There is up to 6 students in a course.

**If you are only interested in MSF Basic RiderCourse:

  • There is no guarantee that every student can operate a motorcycle and meet the course objectives in the allotted course time, even though it is a beginner course.
  • Therefore, it is recommended, but not required, to prepare for the course by taking additional training such as a private lesson or Motorcycling 101.
  • This additional training reduces the chance of being unsafe, counseled-out and forfeiting the tuition.
  • If I am unsafe at any time, I will be counseled-out and must leave the course and forfeit tuition.
  • If I am counseled-out of the course for any reason, in accordance with the DMV guidelines, I will forfeit tuition and cannot reschedule.
  • English as a 2nd Language (ESL) student: it is strongly recommended to bring a translator. If counseled out due to a language barrier, tuition is forfeited and cannot reschedule.
