This program is designed to teach the novice or experienced sidecar or trike rider the skills necessary to safely operate a three-wheeled vehicle on the street, even if you have never ridden any kind of motorcycle. The 16-hour course takes the rider through the basics of motorcycle operation (controls are much the same as a two wheeled motorcycle), effective braking, turning skills and obstacle avoidance, as well as safe riding strategies. The course consists of both classroom instruction and hands-on riding instruction. All riding is done on a closed course. You may bring your own rig to use in the class provided: The rig must be a three-wheeled, motorcycle based, trike or sidecar rig (the rider sits astride the rig over the engine) such as the Harley Davidson factory trike, Can Am Spyder or a permanent conversion such as Motortrike, Lehman, California Sidecar, etc. We cannot allow add on “trike” kits such as the “Voyager” as these vehicles actually have 4 wheels. Your vehicle will be looked at by the instructors for a determination of whether or not the rig is appropriate for use on the range. The final say as to whether or not your rig may be used in the class is at the Instructors discretion. If you choose to use your own rig, you must provide evidence of insurance and proof of ownership. If you do not own the rig, you must provide written permission from the owner.
