BRC2 Skills Practice

Got a bike and want practice with a coach?  This is the class for you!

The MSF Basic RiderCourse 2 (BRC2) is a riding course designed to provide a low risk, effective, and enjoyable training event for participants who have riding experience.  It's a great class if you have your license and just want some guided practice, or just bought a bike and really want to get to know it.  There is no classroom session, only riding. The general objective is for you to practice skills on your own motorcycle. The course is typically four to five hours of riding with breaks.  This is not a licensing course.

Passengers are allowed after the first exercise.  Riders must be at least 15 years old and have a current motorcycle license.  If you need a licensing course, the one day Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic is for you!

The overall aim of the BRC2 is to help riders develop smooth and precise control as they manipulate primary motorcycle controls and develop their riding procedures and techniques.  The first exercise is an entry exercise that you must pass in order to continue the course.  This is to ensure all riders have proficient skills to safely complete the course.

The exercises include:

  1. Control at low speed (entry exercise)
  2. Stopping straight in a turn
  3. Stopping more quickly & tight turns from a stop
  4. Stopping in a curve
  5. Multiple curves & lane changes
  6. Limited space manuevers
  7. Low-speed decreasing radius curves
  8. Swerving
  9. Skills practice

To participate you should have sufficient riding skills and experiences to operate a motorcycle with basic proficiency. You must provide proof of license and insurance. Additionally your motorcycle must pass a T-CLOCS inspection.

If you feel you are looking for a class that has both classroom and riding sessions on why your bike behaves the way it does, we suggest the Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic.
