Motorcycle Safety Experienced RiderCourse


Even if you've been riding for some time, there's always something new to learn.


Increasing numbers of seasoned riders are flocking to the half-day Experienced RiderCourse to hone their skills and fine-tune the mental skills needed for survival in traffic.

You'll discuss with your peers how to balance the mental and physical aspects of safe riding, manage risk, increase visibility and optimize your lane position. The Experienced RiderCourse also covers protective gear, rider responsibility, motorcycle inspection and care and the effects of alcohol and other drugs on riding.

The Experienced RiderCourse will take you through leading edge technology, including:

  • Traction Management
  • Stopping Quickly
  • Cornering and Swerving Skills


The direct task coaching approach will enable you to develop a better understanding of your motorcycle and your abilities. Participation will result in the issuance of an MSF completion that can be used in most cases for insurance discounts, personal fulfillment, and requirements of organizations for Road Captains.
