Advanced Rider Training
Palmetto BMW Riders and Midlands Technical College are teaming up to bring our members Advanced Riders Training on Saturday, March 21st at MTC Beltline Campus.
This year our annual training is for street rider. This is a great class to get your riding and mental skills into rally season form.
Some of the activities include low speed handling and turning, cornering, braking for accident avoidance and much more.
You will use your own registered and insured motorcycle. Your bike must be able to pass a safety inspection. Be sure to check your tires condition and air pressure. If you didn’t do it in the fall, put in fresh fluids and take a good look at the brakes. Take it for a good long test ride the week before the class.
Also inspect your riding gear. You will need a DOT approved helmet, eye protection, gloves, long sleeves shirt, long pants, and over the ankle footwear.
Training begins at 8:00 am and ends at 5:00 pm. There will be an hour for lunch
The class will be held at 316 South Beltline Boulevard, Columbia, SC 29205.
