Learn to stop on a dime.
Based on the training available to instructors and police motor officers, the Braking Clinic (ABC) is a short course for endorsed riders to refine braking skills in normal and emergency situations.
The 2.5-hour ABC takes place on closed off parking lots, but at higher speeds than basic training. When braking from higher speeds, your bike responds differently – learn how to manage quick stops from 40+ mph. The clinic uses range-side chats to address crash situations and myths about braking, and helps those with ABS discover its potential.
ABC is recommended for endorsed riders ready to take their skills to the next level, but does not meet state mandatory training requirements for riders to earn a motorcycle license.
Please note: Riding gear is required for all riding activities. Also, see Completion & Eligibility Requirements.
