Basic RiderCourse 2 (BRC 2)
The Basic RiderCourse 2 is intended to help you polish those skills that motorcycle accident research has shown were lacking in those riders who crashed.
Using your own motorcycle, you will get practical experience and training in advanced riding skills, including advanced cornering techniques, quick swerving and avoidance techniques, counter steering, traction control, and emergency braking for curves and slippery surfaces.
During the BRC 2, you will also discuss how to effectively balance mental and physical aspects of safe riding, manage risk, increase visibility and optimize your lane position. Protective gear, rider responsibility, effects of drugs and alcohol on riding, and how to create your personal strategy for riding in traffic and dealing with critical situations will also be covered.In order to take the Basic RiderCourse 2, riders must:
- have a valid driver's license, with a motorcycle endorsement.
- provide their own street-legal, registered, and insured motorcycle.
- come equipped with the following riding gear: over-the-ankle boots or shoes, long-sleeved shirt or jacket, full-fingered gloves, eyewear, a helmet (minimum 3/4 DOT approved helmet). A full face helmet will be provided to riders who cannot supply their own helmet. Half helmets are not permitted.
