Three Wheel Basic Rider Course

3-WHEELED FREEDOM STARTS HERE 

COURSE FEE$300

This is the best place to start once you've made the decision to ride a 3-wheel motorcycle, whether the two wheels are in the front or the back. The Three Wheel Basic RiderCourse is for three wheel motorcyclists. The 3WBRC is designed for riders of all ages and uses the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s (MSF) curriculum. Six hours of classroom instruction prepares you for eight hours of practical riding exercises in a controlled, off-street environment. Course participants use their own motorcycles.

WHEN SIGNING UP, PLEASE INDICATE IN THE COMMENTS SECTION, IF YOU NEED A TRIKE FOR THE CLASS OR IF YOU ARE USING YOUR OWN.

To become a safer, more responsible rider, Rider Coaches will also discuss:

  • Types of motorcycles
  • Layout and operation of the basic controls
  • Types of safety gear worn for protection and comfort
  • How alcohol and other drugs impair a rider's ability

Next, you'll move to the riding range and your Rider Coach (an experienced motorcyclist certified by MSF) will start you off with straight-line riding, stopping, shifting and turning. You'll gradually progress to swerving and emergency braking.

 The course concludes with a knowledge test and a riding skill evaluation. Once you have successfully completed your training course, you will be happy knowing you have gone the extra mile to develop your own safe riding techniques. Your introduction to the wonderful world of motorcycling has just begun!
