Learn To Ride

 
 

Great Riders Aren’t Born. They’re Made.

LEARN TO RIDE – OR RIDE BETTER – THE H-D® WAY.


If you’re ready to experience the unique thrill of riding your own motorcycle for the first time, there’s no better place to learn than the New Rider Course at Harley-Davidson™ Riding Academy. Experienced riders, take your skills to the next level with the Skilled Rider Course. Available only at Authorized H-D® Dealerships.

NEW RIDER COURSE


WHAT TO EXPECT

When you take a New Rider Course at the Riding Academy you’ll:

  • Learn to ride on a genuine Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
  • Get in-class and on-range instruction from Motorcycle Safety Foundation® (MSF) and H-D® Certified Coaches.
  • Learn to safely accelerate, shift, brake, and turn, along with maneuvers like controlling skids and surmounting obstacles.
  • Earn an MSF Basic RiderCourseSM Completion Card, which may (varies by state) exempt you from the riding portion of your license exam and score you a discount on motorcycle insurance.

    20+ years riding. Rider Coach for 15 years. As a Rider Coach, I get a great deal of satisfaction helping students realize their dreams of becoming a Motorcyclist. There are few things in life that can give a person a sense of challenge and accomplishment that motorcycling provides in large doses. It’s time for everyone to get some of that. Hope to see you at one of our classes.

    Six years ago, I was a student in a Basic Rider Course and fell in love with the sport of motorcycling. With the skills I learned and practiced in the BRC, I am able to get out and enjoy the open road. As a RiderCoach, I have the privilege of assisting our students in achieving their dreams of becoming safe and responsible riders. I’m looking forward to working with you and welcoming you as a part of the BCHD family.
