What is the Basic Riders Course?
The BRCu was developed for inexperienced riders as well as those who are self-taught on a motorcycle (those who have not had “formal” training); even those with years of experience will find this class enlightening. This course focuses on helping the inexperienced rider acquire the basic skills needed to ride and helps the experienced rider develop better skills and learn proper techniques to be a safe rider. It is not necessary to have a motorcycle for the BRCu, as Saddle-Up provides motorcycles for the course. Although a student can ride their own motorcycle we suggest that students ride one of the motorcycles we provide. The BRCu consists of two components, a classroom component and a riding component, approximately 16 hours. The classroom portion is an online “eCourse” done at home before your class, followed by the riding component done in person at the range. As you go through the course you will complete all of your testing for adding your motorcycle endorsement to your license, both written and driving (with exceptions for minors and new licenses). First, you’ll need to read the policies (see above) and then register, remember registration is not completed until you’ve paid for your spot in the class.
Once you’ve registered, you will receive an email with instructions on how to go about completing the online eCourse. As you go through the power points you will get information about the motorcycle controls, their operation, safety, roadway concepts, etc… (plan on 5 to 6 hrs.). Since this is required to continue; you will need to present your rider coach a printed “certificate of completion” when you meet the first day of class.
The riding is divided into two days and is usually between 9am and 4pm. However; since weather can sometimes be extreme, start and finish times can change. So, it would be best to plan on this. The range exercises will give you the opportunity learn (or improve) skills and techniques, you will be encouraged and challenged. The class concludes with a riding test. And it just might be the most fun you’ve ever had in school. (+/- 12hrs.).
