Just in case you are wondering if you should take that Motorcycle Rider Education Class???
The answer is yes!
My dream was to one day own a Harley Sportster. I realized that dream in January, 2011. Although I was able to ride, I had this nervous tension every time I was in traffic. I decided to take a class.
I have just completed the beginner class and it was an eye-opening experience for me. I have had considerable experience on dirt bikes but very little with street bikes. I am now much more confident on my new motorcycle knowing that I am armed with the safety and techical skills to make my bike work with me.
During this class I watched students who had never been on a motorcycle complete skills tasks that some experienced riders have problems with. The instructor was knowledgeable, experienced and very encouraging.
I had doubts if the class would be worth the cost. Every penny was well spent. I would recommend a motorcycle class to anyone who owns a bike or thinking about purchasing one. If you have been riding for years, take the Intermediate level. You won’t regret it. Just the safety awareness alone is worth it.
