The Advanced RiderCourse (ARC) is designed for experienced motorcycle riders.  For the purposes of this course, an experienced rider is one who has basic skills and is a current rider with a motorcycle license or endorsement.  This course complements skills learned and experienced in previous RiderCourses.  Special emphasis is given to self-assessment, risk management, rider behavior, riding strategies, and overall skill development, particularly in braking, cornering and swerving techniques.  It includes a fast-paced classroom segment (4 hours) with several fun interactive activities to improve perception and hazard awareness. Range exercises (4 hours) enhance both basic operating skills and crash-avoidance skills. The course is beneficial for riders on any type of street motorcycle.
