lance---i am from upstate ny, and the local community colleges do it, and the HD shops offer it also....manys is also a saftey riding course....also you can go to a bike shop and they usually have infor on the different courses and where they are held..........
Hi Youcan take the Motorcycle safety Course in NY ..you can take it in Yonkers (contact mSC in Long Island City (Queens,NY) or at Queensborough Community College. The course was $380 last year and $50 an hour for practice. If you fail dont be discouraged. Take it again when you have confidence.Too bad I didnt learn when I was younger but You are never too late .As long as you have the determination and motivation go for it... :)
I just took the course over Easter weekend. The course in TX is only 2 days from 8 to 5 each day. It cost 180. and is sponsored by our State Dept. of Public Safety. My instructor was a retired (30 yrs) motorcycle cop, and he was awsome. I had friends try to teach me, and I "could" ride before I took the class, but I had no confidence and always got off the bike shaking. After this course, I am confident and KNOW I can now ride that bike!!! I think everyone should take the course, because you learn soooooooo much that an individual does not "know" to teach you. I had a blast taking it, you will to. And it was worth EVERY PENNY.
WOW..steep price there in NJ.
I'm taking that course April 29th - May 1 here in Ohio...same course, same deal and my cost was $25.00. My 18 dtr takes it in June. Ahhh no, she can borrow my car but not my Harley..lol
You can also go to your local county college, they offer courses in riding safety, and unlike Motorcycle dealers they are state certified and you will have your pemit stamped there and go right to MV, and recieve your license. The course is 3 days fri-sat and sun any where from 200 to 300 dollars, you also will recieve a discount on your insurance, hope it helps. Ride safe, late
I think the course should be required for all new riders! Take it before you buy a bike so you won't be tempted to practice on yours! My 16 year old daughter took the course of her own accord. Does she really think I might let her borrow my Fat Boy some Friday night? Also don't think you have to start with a Sportster as I did. They are top heavy and tall. Some of the "bigger" bikes are actually easier to ride...
LOL glad I am not alone .Ok I live in West Virginia.Last week I went to OR and rode a bike for the first time lol .Wow let me tell you I was and am hooked .So I got back on the plane to return home on the 20th and as soon as I got home went got my book and went to take my permit test .So now kinda hit a wall cause I dont own a bike still looking for what I want .I am hoping to take the course sometime in April I called a 866 number which said the course was $100.00 and three days long no biggy but i also start school next week to so I will have a pretty full scheldule.In the end though to be honest I would love to have a individual person to show me the ropes (so to speak ) I do alot better one on one then in a crowde.
well do running my mouth lol later
Well You could Come to Wisconsin ANd Id give you lessons.. I taught several Women to ride!!!!... If This doesn't work. You could also contact your local Harley Dealership. By me many sponsor Rider Courses...
