Road America has announced the creation of its Road America Motorcycle School. The Road America Motorcycle School is endorsed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT). Successful completion of the school’s basic rider course enables participants to obtain a Class M endorsement on their driver’s license from the WisDOT.
Two MSF-designed courses will be offered by Road America: the Basic Rider Course (BRC) and the Experienced Rider Course (ERC). The BRC consists of 16 hours of combined classroom and practical riding instruction. Participants in this course learn basic riding techniques along with important safety skills to minimize the risks of motorcycling. Participants will use Suzuki GZ250s which are supplied by Road America. The course fee is $250.00. The ERC is for riders looking to sharpen and build on the skills learned in the BRC. It consists of one hour of classroom and five hours of practical instruction. Riders must use their own motorcycles. The course fee is $125.00. Road America provides the instruction for both courses in its controlled, off-street environment. The courses are offered April through November. A current schedule of courses is available by calling Road America, 800/365-7223, Ext. 2010.
The schools will be taught by rider coaches who have been trained extensively by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Sin ce March 1973, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation has set internationally-recognized standards of excellence in motorcycle rider education and training. The MSF works with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), state governments, the military and other organizations to improve motorcyclist education, training and operator licensing.
