Another major addition, Rider’s Edge Academy of Motorcycling new riders training program has officially launched at the store as well. Rider’s Edge teaches riding techniques and safety in a course that combines time-tested curriculum of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation with hands-on expert instruction and a real-road experience on the new riding range.
There are two types of classes being offered, the beginner’s riding course (BRC) and the skilled rider’s course (SRC). The courses are specifically designed for each level of rider and, combined with the time-tested curriculum of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation these courses offer hands-on expert instruction and a real-road experience for every level of rider. Each course provides time for range riding exercises and classroom instruction in safe street strategies.
Courses will be offered twice a week at the store on Mondays and Thursdays. The cost of the course is $249 (plus tax) and includes the use of a 492cc Buell® Blast® bike and a DOT approved helmet. Upon successful completion of both a written and a riding evaluation, students will receive an MSF completion card. The completion card allows riders to get their endorsement and get out on the road with no further testing required.

Part of the store expansion, a new parking lot has been added and a track that has recently been completed for the new Rider’s Edge Program. Other exciting changes are also planned for the store in the fall and wintertime.
