Motorcycle Rider Skills Training

Jump Start Course

If you’ve never ridden a motorcycle or driven a vehicle with manual transmission, the smaller class size and slower pace of Jump Start class is designed just for you. Or, if you’ve attempted the BRC, and need a bit more practice to get up to speed, try Jump Start. No tests, no completion cards…and no pressure! Experience the fun!

Meets: Sunday, Jun 15, BRCC Weyers Cave Campus Room A106, 8-11 am (#15673) OR 12-3 pm (#15678)
Fee: $79; motorcycles and helmets provided
