Riders are encouraged to ride their own street-legal, licensed and insured motorcycle (proof of insurance is required) fueled to last through the day/approximately 40 miles. Bikes are subject to a safety inspection by the course instructors. Road America instructors have the right to refuse any customized motorcycles deemed unfit for course operation.

Course Curriculum:

  • One hour of classroom discussion
  • Four hours of on-range riding exercises

On-range course work at the Briggs & Stratton Motorplex is designed to simulate real-world riding conditions. The Motorplex training circuit encompasses nearly one mile of paved roadway featuring over a dozen unique curves, elevation changes, interconnected curves of various and alternating lean angles, and line of sight challenges. These features combine to give the rider multiple repetitive opportunities to study the road features to determine the best control and path options.

SSC1 runs rain or shine. Plan accordingly for the weather and bring rain gear if inclement weather occurs. Course size is limited. Advanced registration is required. 

Please review our School Policies before registering for any Road America Motorcycle Classes.
