Motorcycle Riding Lessons


Available at all 3 locations!

Welcome to the Harley-Davidson Riding Academy. Whether you're a two-wheeled novice or a seasoned road veteran, we can help you take the ride of your life.

Combining the time-tested curriculum of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation® with the passion of Harley-Davidson, the New Rider Course
offers hands-on instruction and real-road experience that can teach you the skills you need to get the most out of riding.

The New Rider Course
A proven blend of classroom instruction and range riding, the New Rider Course delivers the basics of motorcycle operation in Harley-Davidson style. You’ll learn from devoted instructors certified by both the Motorcycle Safety Foundation® (MSF) and Harley-Davidson in a relaxed, supportive environment that fosters camaraderie and confidence.
After passing the written and riding skills evaluation, you'll receive an MSF RiderCourseSM Completion Card that exempts you from the written and/or riding portion of the motorcycle license test, as well as possibly
qualify you for discounts on insurance. But more than that, you'll begin a journey that lasts a lifetime.

Requirements - To take the course, you will need:

  • To know how to ride a bicycle
  • A valid automobile driver's license or learner's permit
  • Jeans, sturdy over-the-ankle boots or shoes, full-fingered motorcycle gloves, a heavy long-sleeved shirt or jacket and protective eyewear
  • A helmet that meets DOT requirements
