Motorcycle Skills: Basic Bike Bonding Rider Course

Bike bonding refers to the connection and interaction between a rider and motorcycle. Good bike bonding helps riders automate their physical skills so they can devote more attention to road and traffic conditions (searching and evaluating). The objective of this course is to develop and practice basic skills beyond those acquired in the Basic Rider Course (BRC). The course is designed to provide sufficient control skills to handle a motorcycle in more challenging street situations in a low risk, effective and enjoyable training environment. The BBBRC is also an excellent refresher course for those who may not have ridden for a period of time since their BRC or who desire additional practice time. You must have completed the BRC or have sufficient riding skills and experience to operate a motorcycle with basic proficiency. Students must have a motorcycle endorsement or motorcycle permit. There is no classroom portion to this course. The BRC is a recommended prerequisite for the novice rider; however, it is not required. Must have motorcycle permit or M-endorsement on driver’s license and be 18 years of age or older. Those under 18 years of age must have a release form signed by a legal guardian or parent. Required items include DOT-approved three-quarter or full helmet (loaner helmets available), over ankle boots with two-inch or lower heels, full fingered gloves, long-sleeved jacket or heavy shirt, eye protection, sturdy pants and a photo ID. Loaner motorcycles provided. This is not a MO State waiver class. A health screening form will be sent prior to class. Form must be completed to participate in class. Assumption of Risk, Release and Waiver of Liability must be signed at first class.

Motorcycle Skills: Ultimate Bike Bonding Rider Course

Bike bonding refers to the connection and interaction of the rider and motorcycle. Good bike bonding helps riders automate their physical skills so they can devote more attention to road and traffic conditions (searching and evaluating). This is a precision riding curriculum derived from police motorcycle training courses and consists of drills and skill circuits to improve a rider’s performance. Controlled motorcycle operation and body positioning are emphasized to maximize low-speed operation and control. By the end of the course, participants should be able to handle their motorcycle in a more precise and smooth manner. There is no classroom portion to this course. Participants must provide their own motorcycle and pass an on-site safety inspection. The BRC-2 or ARC are recommended prerequisites if the student has never taken a formal class for low speed maneuvers. Must have an M-endorsement on license, use their own street-legal insured motorcycle (no scooters permitted), and be 18 years of age or older. Required items include DOT-approved three-quarter or full helmet (loaner helmets available), over ankle boots with two-inch or lower heels, full finger gloves, long-sleeved jacket or heavy shirt, eye protection, sturdy pants. A health screening form will be sent prior to class. Form must be completed to participate in class. Assumption of Risk, Release and Waiver of Liability must be signed at first class.
