Basic Rider’s Course
Learn to Ride The Right Way
No riding experience? No worries. The BRC was designed for riders with no experience or novice riders. The course covers the basic fundamentals to becoming a safe and responsible rider. Each student learns the physical and mental skills necessary for operating a motorcycle. Students are taught in the classroom as well as on the range. Students learn ways to reduce risk and handle special riding situations. In addition, students learn basic control that includes: clutch/throttle control, straight-line riding, turning and shifting. Then move on to the more advanced skills to include stopping quickly, cornering and swerving.

Our students receive 5 hours of classroom instruction in a relaxed atmosphere. Thus, the material is taught using lectures, video, written work, and open discussion to ensure comprehension. No question goes unanswered. The knowledge test is given toward the end of class. A passing score is 80%.
The Basic Rider’s Course consists of 10 hours of riding on the range. It’s here where our students put their knowledge to work to build skill. The riding skills evaluation (on the range) consists of four exercises that assess limited/space maneuvering skills. These skills include braking, cornering, and swerving competencies.

What to Bring and Wear
Wear long pants and a long-sleeve shirt. Bring full-fingered gloves (leather gives the best grip), protective shatterproof eye-wear such as sunglasses or goggles. In addition, wear over-the-ankle footwear. We recommend a rain suit (we will ride in a light rain). You may bring a helmet, but not required. FSR provides you with a motorcycle and helmet.
