More Information on the BRC2:

The Basic RiderCourse 2 is geared toward experienced riders that want to develop further and challenge the needed skills to ride smoothly, efficiently, and safely. The class consists of a two-hour online eCourse, three hours of interactive classroom learning, and approximately five hours of riding exercises. Successful completion of this course qualifies participants for a Colorado motorcycle license.  Even riders that have quite a bit of riding experience can find something to take away from these exercises designed to sharpen braking, cornering, swerving, and control skills. The riding exercises will conclude with a knowledge test and a skills evaluation.

In the classroom, we will talk about proven thinking strategies that help keep riders more aware when out on the roads.  We will discuss various topics, including situational awareness, risk reduction, traffic “traps,” driving tendencies, perception, visual acuity, and reaction time.

 

For the riding exercises, students will focus on more advanced riding techniques, including tight cornering, corner judgment, swerving, and emergency braking.

*Before riding participation, you must complete the free online eCourse, which will help you prepare for the knowledge and skill evaluations. This eCourse typically takes 2 hours to complete and can be done conveniently on your phone or computer at any time. You must bring a printed copy of your eCourse completion certificate before class.  And you need to complete the eCourse no more than 30 days before your class.

 

*If you have completed an eCourse more than 30 days before the class start date, unfortunately, you will have to re-take the eCourse.

*Disclaimer: The Basic Rider Course 2 curriculum is for intermediate riders, and most walk out of the class with a motorcycle endorsement, the skills, and proper mindset ready for the roads. However, there is no guarantee that you will pass the course on your first attempt. Chain Reaction/Ricky Orlando Motorcycle School understands that riding a motorcycle safely and adequately is not a natural skill. Some students need more seat time to pass the riding evaluation and develop safe riding habits, which is totally okay. We understand that everyone learns differently, and sometimes it takes more time on the bike than one class to gain the skills to stay safe on the roadways. We have seen and learned different training styles, and we truly believe that the MSF Basic Rider Course 2 is one of the best ways to improve as a rider while earning a motorcycle endorsement. No matter the outcome, we will work with you as long as it takes to achieve your goals and dreams!

 

Refund Policy: Chain Reaction/Ricky Orlando MC School will offer partial refunds if the participant(s) notify 720-807-7767 or luke@chainreactionmotorcycleschool.com no later than 72 hours before the class start time. Due to transaction expenses, there will be a $25 charge for any refund. There will be no refunds for participants that do not notify the Chain Reaction/ Ricky Orlando MC School or notify later than 72 hours before the class start time.
