The Basic RiderCourse 1 is a two-day course that combines approximately 5 hours of classroom discussion and 10 hours of on-bike instruction. The experience provides fundamental knowledge and skill required for entry-level riders that are 15 years old and older. Successful completion of the course qualifies participants for a Colorado motorcycle license. It is also a good course for riders who have been off their bike for an extended time and need a motorcycle license.
In the classroom, you will learn about the different types of motorcycles, the layout and operation of the basic controls, proper riding gear, and bring to light effective thinking strategies to become a more aware and responsible rider. We will also discuss various topics, including situational awareness, risk reduction, traffic “traps,” driving tendencies, perception, visual acuity, and reaction time.
You will then move to the riding range, where your MSF-certified RiderCoach will guide you through 14 riding exercises that slowly uncover the basic skills of straight-line riding, stopping, shifting, and turning, gradually progressing to swerving and emergency braking.
*Before riding participation, you must complete the free eCourse, which will help you get ready for riding a motorcycle. This eCourse typically takes three 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.
*You must know how to ride a bicycle before taking this class.
*Disclaimer: The Basic RiderCourse 1 is designed for beginning 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 Motorcycle School understands that riding a motorcycle safely and adequately, unfortunately, is not a skill that comes naturally. Some students need more seat time to pass the riding evaluation and continue developing safe riding habits. We understand that everyone learns differently, and sometimes it takes more time on the bike than one class to gain the skills to pass the riding evaluation and keep you safe on the road. We have seen and learned different training styles, and we truly believe that the MSF Basic RiderCourse is the best way to learn the ropes of riding a motorcycle. No matter the outcome, we will work with you as long as it takes to achieve your goals and dreams.
