Experienced Rider-GOING FROM 2 WHEELS TO 3?

Fine-tune your skills and learn new strategies for the road.

Challenge yourself to master the basics. Be a good example for new riders.

The classroom activities introduce the mental and perceptual processes needed to be a good rider and show you how to process information and make safe decisions. The riding sessions have you practice basic control that includes clutch and throttle coordination, straight-line riding, stopping, turning, and shifting. Also included are quicker stops, curves, and swerves. It is important not only to be healthy, but to have enough fitness, strength, and coordination to learn well and manage the physical demands of riding a three-wheel motorcycle (3WMC).

Your Rider Coaches are here to instruct and guide you. Ask a lot of questions and let them know how to help you. You will have your questions answered and your progress observed. In the classroom, there will be discussions supported by a variety of activities. On the range, the off-street riding area, you will work on skills to help you handle common riding tasks.
