Our goal is to provide you with the basic techniques to become a safe, responsible, and successful motorcyclist. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation® is the internationally recognized developer of the comprehensive, research-based, Rider Education which promotes lifelong-learning for motorcyclists by reducing the number of crashes, injuries, and fatalities, and also by promoting the public images of the responsible rider.
Our instructors (interested in becoming a coach?) are nationally certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and licensed by the state of Maine.
We offer two different courses:
the hands-on Basic Rider Course (BRC) for novices seeking a motorcycle license and to learn practical skills and techniques (5 hours of classroom & 10 hours hands-on training)
the Experienced Rider Course (ERC)will provide you with the basic techniques to become a safe, responsible, and successful motorcyclist. This is for experienced licensed motorcyclists to enhance their current skills (6-8 hours of hands-on training). We hold the MSF-ERC course on the last Friday on the month.
