Jumpstart is an optional 3 hour course designed for the novice rider to gain familiarity and comfort with the motorcycle BEFORE taking the Basic Rider 2 or 3 Wheel Course

Motorcycles, Scooters, Can-Am’s, Trikes and Helmets are provided.

The course is made up of the following activities:

Motorcycle & Riding Gear Familiarization: This exercise is designed to acquaint the new rider with the many types of helmets, jackets, pants, boots and other riding gear along  major parts and controls of a 2 or 3 wheel motorcycle.

Using the Friction Zone: This exercise is designed to introduce riders with the procedures and practices to start out, stop, and operate at low speed in a straight line.IMG_0318

Starting & Stopping: This exercise is designed to provide practice time for riders in learning clutch/throttle coordination in starting out and stopping.

You should be able to balance and ride a bicycle before taking the Jumpstart class and or the BRC. The class is kept small in numbers for your comfort with one or two Instructors. Instructors for the program are all experienced motorcycle operators who are state certified by the DMV’s Virginia Rider Training Program (VRTP) and Nationally by The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF).
