I was privileged to attend the Experience Rider Course in April 2016. I've been riding on the streets for many years. My hope was to come away with one or two tweaks to integrate into my riding style. The result far exceeded any expectations I had. The classroom portion was largely a review to set everyone...

The information was extensive, yet presented in a way for adult learners to understand and implement. The hands on experience complemented classroom teachings and really gave a solid foundation.
