Harley-Davidson® Riding Academy Skilled Rider Course REGISTER
Take your riding to an all-new level
The Harley-Davidson® Riding Academy Skilled Rider Course. Created for experienced riders, it offers advanced tips and techniques that help you own the road.
The course runs 1-2 days and is built on the curriculum of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation® (MSF) Basic RiderCourse 2 Suite. It is taught by devoted MSF and H-D® Certified Instructors.
The hands-on experience is usually enough for participants to consider whether or not learning to ride is for them. The IME is a perfect introduction to the joys of motorcycling and NOT intended to teach a person how to ride. There is no skill test or license waiver associated with this course.
When you're done, you'll earn a MSF Basic RiderCourse 2 completion card that may qualify you for a discount on motorcycle insurance.
The course focuses on improving these skills
- Control at low speeds
- Risk management
- Limited space maneuvers
- Cornering judgment
- Swerving and stopping quickly on straights and in curves
- Multiple curve maneuvers and surmounting objects
