Course description:

THE BRC 2 IS HELD AT OUR RIDING RANGE, LOCATED AT 1628 W. MADISON, CHICAGO.

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.
