A proven blend of classroom instruction and range riding, the Riding Academy New Rider Course delivers the basics of motorcycle operation Harley-Davidson® style. You´ll learn from devoted instructors certified by both the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and Harley-Davidson® to create a relaxed, supportive environment that fosters camaraderie and confidence.
