You must have the ability to ride a bicycle and be comfortable balancing on two wheels. Balance and hand coordination are essential skills for safe motorcycling. Students unable to balance on two wheels will be asked to leave and encouraged to practice on a bicycle for several months. They can return on a standby basis only. If it has been more than a year since you have ridden a two wheeled vehicle, please practice before coming to class. We can not teach you to ride if you can not easily balance on two wheels.
