Participants will learn the special skills and mental strategies necessary for responsible motorcycle operation. Basic Rider course is divided into two levels. Level I concentrates on the basic skills of clutch and throttle control, straight-line riding, turning, shifting and stopping. Level II builds on the basic skills and provides practice in the collision avoidance skills, stopping in the shortest distance, swerving, and proper cornering techniques. Students will learn about the motorcycle controls and how to operate them, and how alcohol and other drugs affect one's ability to ride safely. A very important segment of the course will instruct students how to create their own strategy for riding in traffic, and dealing with special situations.
