View FAQ's >

  1. Are bike and helmet rentals available?
    No, all participants must provide their own bike and helmet and they must meet the school's requirements.
  2. What do I need to do to my bike before I arrive?
    For this course, you will need to tape over the lenses and mirrors. Blue masking painters tape works best. Always check your bike over for safety and come with good tires and brakes. Your bike must have 85% or better tire life. The bike does not need to be safety wired. All bikes must have a dab of red silicone on the oil drain plug signifying you have checked the plug is properly tightened. A street bike works great on the track.
  3. What do I need to wear?
    A full leather suit. Two or one piece is fine. Two piece needs to zip all the way around. A hard shell back protector, boots over your ankle and leather gloves past your wrists. A non-damaged late model full-face quality helmet with eye protection. The motorcycle school offers everything for rent except for helmets.
  4. How much time will I get to ride?
    You will ride once per hour for about 20 minutes. There will be a 1 hour lunch break. You can ride as much or as little as you like. We start at 9 am and usually end at 5 pm.
  5. Is there any difference riding on the track compared to the street?
    Yes. Riding the track offers repetition to practice and master your skills in a very controlled, safer environment when compared to the street. There are no speed limits and the only important rule is that everyone rides safe and has fun.
  6. Can I ride my bike to and from the track?
    Yes, but realize that you will be riding about 20 minutes every hour on the track and it can be tiring. We recommend that you trailer your bike if at all possible.
  7. Is there gas available at the track?
    Most tracks offer gas for sale but it’s always good to bring some. You may use up to 10 gallons during your day.
