1.5 HRS OF PRE-COURSE COACHING before your Basic Rider Course.

This can be a stand-alone training opportunity. If you have no experience, Headstart is a valuable opportunity to familiarize yourself with motorcycle riding at a slower, less stressful pace than the larger class setting. We familiarize you with the motorcycle, friction zone, shifting and get you started on exercises! Our Headstart students claim this icebreaker did much to boost their confidence and get them off to a good solid start.

Headstart may be taken independent of the Basic RiderCourse and more than once. Not sure if Motorcycling is for you? Try HEADSTART and find out!

Many students sign up for Headstart just prior to their Basic RiderCourse. This gives them some advance preparation for the Basic RiderCourse a day or two, or even a week, before the full course.
