Dodging the Roadkill: Learning To Ride – Part Two

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I shared my experience on learning to ride over the weekend.  You can read it here.

While I think it’s a great idea for all bikers to take the new riders course, not all bikers do.  That’s your choice.  A lot of bikers just hop on and ride, but I think there are immeasurable benefits to taking the course.  Even if it’s just for the insurance discount.

Most Harley Davidson dealerships offer this course, and many of them offer the Advanced Riders, or “Skilled Riders” course. This course is for bikers who have had some experience, and want to improve their skills.

I completed the course yesterday and it was an amazing experience!
