Bike Bonding refers to the connection and interaction of the rider and motorcycle. Bike Bonding brings a new level of excitement to our RideCourse offerings.

The MSF Basic Bike Bonding RiderCourse (BBBRC) has no classroom and is a partial day riding course designed to provide a low risk, effective, and enjoyable training event for participants just starting their riding endeavors. The course is typically only four to five hours of riding with breaks.

The overall aim of the BBBRC is to help riders develop smooth and precise control as they manipulate  primary motorcycle controls and develop their riding procedures and techniques. Good bike bonding helps a rider automate physical skills so they can devote more attention to road and traffic conditions (searching and evaluating). It helps a rider to be a better decision-maker.

To participate you should have successfully completed the MSF Basic Rider Course (BRC) or equivalent, or have sufficient riding skills and experiences to operate a motorcycle with basic proficiency. The BBBRC is a great transition for graduates of the Basic RiderCourse to continue skill development.

The BBBRC consists of 11 riding exercises that start with basic control reinforcement with a progression to advanced maneuvering. The following are examples of some of the exercises you'll ride:

SPEED CONTROL & TURNS FROM A STOP: This is a busy exercise with shortened clutch control lane, pause-n-go, tight turns from a stop, and practice of stronger acceleration than compared to the Basic RiderCourse.

ACCELERATE, THEN BRAKE FOR TURN: A primary point of this exercise is to experience the results of a more aggressive, short-term acceleration and braking. Acceleration is accomplished in a straight line and tight turns are made at low speed.

CURVES & SWERVES: This exercise uses a continuous cornering circuit with a path leading to a swerve area. The exercise helps with improving cornering abilities along with precise and crisp steering inputs.

LOW-SPEED DECREASING RADIUS CURVES: You will practice riding at steady speeds or practice reducing speed smoothly as the curves get tighter.  

LOLLIPOPS: an exciting, yet challenging exercise, consisting of a circuit of slaloms and circles of progressively decreasing sizes. The nature of this exercise is to challenge riders within their skill level, it is an exercise that may be omitted from the course if riders or RiderCoaches determine that it is beyond participant current skill levels.

SHARING THE ROAD: This exercise is a continuous path of travel that reinforces the social aspect of sharing the road, gap selection and leaving space for others. This exercise allows riders to focus on continuous improvement of the application of skills and knowledge to manage risks.

The Basic Bike Bonding RiderCourses will fast become one of the most valuable classes a new or experienced rider can take to enhance, renew, and refresh their skills. These courses are a part of the philosophy of Safety Renewal, were a rider must continuously take advantage of opportunities to build upon both the Mental and Physical skills needed to be a life long "Learning" rider.

Rescheduling/Refund Policy

REFUNDS: We do not refund class fees once scheduled. The reason for not refunding is that the costs that you pay are immediately committed to pay for Rider Coaches, Training Manuals, Facility costs, etc. that we can't get back. Further, the costs exceed the cost you pay (we receive a reimbursement from the state to offset these costs). So once you're signed up, you're guaranteeing you'll be there and ready to train and we guarantee the training will be provided. 

RESCHEDULING POLICY: If a participant needs to reschedule a class and notifies us at least 30 days prior to the original class start date, we will provide a Coupon Code for 50% off. the Participant can then sign up for the course of their choosing and use the Coupon towards that class. Due to the expenses incurred, we will not be able to make a refund of the initial class scheduled. Finally the Coupon Code will only be valid for 5 days from the date of receiving the code. This just means that the participant must pick and register for the class of their choosing within those 5 days (the class can be any date available at the time of registration).

In addition, if a Rider Coach determines that it is to dangerous to continue the course we will do all we can to coordinate a time with you finish off the information/training from the point of where the training was stopped OR get you into another class at the determination of the Rider Coach. Frankly, in 3 years we have not had a weekend that has been forced to be rescheduled. It has rained and training delayed but we've always been able to work it out so that everyone could complete the training. One note: We do train in the rain and the cold so please dress appropriately. Classes will be stopped for lightening or severe weather, only while the severe weather is in the vicinity. After the weather has passed classes will be continued.

NOTE REGARDING CLASS TIMES: Weekend classes are normally scheduled from 8am to 5pm. Some classes will be offered with a Friday, Saturday, Sunday schedule where the weekend days are a half day schedule. None the less, times are estimated: weather, the amount of time it takes to meet objectives and a host of other things can make classes take longer. If you have to leave prior to the end of the class, you won't be able to meet all of the objectives and therefore won't be successful. Please don't schedule a follow on appointment for 5:30, there are just too many variables and we are always looking for your success!
