Advanced Riders Course

The ARC is a one-day course that improves a rider's basic skills and helps with personal risk tests and evaluations. It includes a fast classroom part/section with (more than two, but not a lot of) interactive activities. This part/section is to improve perception and danger-related awareness. It consists of a range of exercises to enhance both basic skills and crash avoidance skills. The class draws attention to improving braking and cornering skill.

The course is beneficial for riders on any street motorcycle.

Additional Information:

  • Class is conducted in optimal weather conditions only (no precipitation). The rain date will be pre-determined. This is to ensure that threshold braking and advanced turning can be explored with the greatest traction available.
  • Note: There is no time or mileage requirement between courses. Each course can be completed right after a previous one.
