Montana Motorcycle Rider Safety
Training Courses: Basic RiderCourse 2 (BRC2)

For Experienced Riders

MMRS students
The Basic RiderCoursesm 2 is a one-day class designed to improve your skills in braking, evasive maneuvers and turning. It provides the experienced motorcyclist with the "street strategies" necessary for survival.

Using your own motorcycle, you'll put into practice the techniques of managing traction, stopping quickly, cornering and swerving. You will also discuss with your peers how to balance the mental and physical aspects of safe riding, manage risk, increase visibility and optimize your lane position. This course also provides valuable information about protective gear, rider responsibility, motorcycle inspection and care, and the effects of alcohol and other drugs on riding.

Even if you've been riding for some time, there's always something new to learn. Or bad habits to unlearn. Be aware that if a rider's skill level is considered unsafe by the Coach, that rider may be counseled out of the class.

Increasing numbers of seasoned riders are attending a BRC2 to hone their skills and fine-tune the mental skills needed for survival in traffic. This experienced course may also qualify graduates for insurance premium discounts with their motorcycle insurers, so be sure to call your agent for more information!

What you will need for this course:

  • Your street-legal motorcycle (in good repair because it will be subject to a safety inspection before being allowed into the course)
  • DOT approved helmet
  • Insurance for your motorcycle is highly recommended

Wear appropriate riding attire: long sleeve shirt or jacket, long pants or jeans (not too baggy or long), over the ankle boots, gloves (full fingered), eye protection.
