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.
