4 hours of intense small group training for intermediate and high-novice riders ($245). About the Course The Intermediate Rider Course is approximately four hours long. The instructor-to-student ratio is 1:3 - that’s one instructor for three students. You may elect to take the course on your own motorcycle or scooter or on one of our motorcycles. We will have Suzuki TU 250s, Harley-Davidson Street 500s, and Harley- Davidson Police Road Kings (or Dyna) available for your use. We may not have enough Road Kings for all students, so we'll ask you to share if needed. Course Conduct The Intermediate Rider Course includes: Review of basic concepts and techniques Cone course skills demonstration and practice Slow speed maneuvers Maneuvering in tight turns and weaves Turning at higher speeds Take a look at our IRC Highlight Reel to get a feel for the course. This course is conducted in a group environment with individual attention. Any courses you may have taken at the novice or beginner level were generally totally group oriented with some, very little, individual feedback. In that novice course you had to wait for the person in front of you to get through before you could do anything else. In this course you, must wait the same way if, and only if, someone is in front of you. That won't always be the case. All students go through exercises 1 through 3 together. Once exercise three has been completed you are free to go back to previous exercises and practice, becoming comfortable with that skill. As the entire class is introduced to a new exercise, you’ll be free to go back to the previous exercises and practice. At first, and when working as a group, it’s difficult for the instructors to give you the one-on-one attention you may need or desire. But that won’t last for long. You may rest assured that even though your instructors or conducting a group exercise they are paying attention to each individual. Their first concern is whether you can evaluate your own performance and if so, recognize deficiencies and correct them. If that’s happening, they may focus their attention on other students rather than you. As the class progresses the instructors will have more and more opportunities to spend time with every student. That time is a perfect opportunity for the instructor to identify your strengths and weaknesses and for you to do the same as well as any concerns you have. During the course of the day, as you finish working on an exercise on your own, reflect on the skill level you displayed while riding that exercise. Think back to the discussions with the instructors to the group on how the exercise should be done and compare that to how you did. If you think you need to work on any part of it and know what you should do, then do it again. If you have some confusion, then simply stop your motorcycle, put the side stand down, and wave to the closest instructor. They will come as soon as they can to assist you. If you know you should and you don’t ask for personal attention, one-on-one, just remember that’s on you. Available Classes To see more details and register for a class, just click on the Class Name.
