Advanced Parking Lot Course

Learn and practice advanced skills in a group setting

This parking lot training option is for riders wanting an introduction to advanced techniques.

The course features demonstrations and drills to help you learn and refine advanced body positioning, shifting, braking, throttle and cornering skills. We will also practice slow-speed maneuvers.

This course is for all levels of experienced riders with at least 1,000 miles under their belt. This is not for brand new riders. New riders should sign up for a basic rider course with their state motorcycle safety program.
