NEW RIDER COURSE WHAT TO EXPECT

When you complete a New Rider Course at the Riding Academy you will:

Learn to ride on a Genuine Harley-Davidson Street® 500 motorcycle
Receive full support of the entire Dealership staff, before, during and well after your class
Learn systematically how to accelerate, shift, brake, turn from a stop, along with maneuvers like controlling skids, swerving and multiple-curves.

NEW RIDER COURSE FAQS

You'll need a valid Minnesota/Wisconsin automobile driver's license, and have the ability to ride and balance a bicycle.
If you have a valid non-Minnesota/Wisconsin driver's license, you are responsible for checking with your state to confirm they will accept a waiver from the state of Minnesota/Wisconsin.
You will need a valid Minnesota Motorcycle Permit if you a Minnesota resident.
You do NOT need to hold a Wisconsin Motorcycle Temporary Permit before class because you are on private property. If you intend to ride on the road prior to class, it is strongly suggested you do earn the Temporary Permit to remain a legal motorcyclist.
For Wisconsin residents: After the course is completed and Waiver Form earned, you WILL need to complete the Motorcycle Temporary Permit test before the M endorsement will be given at the DMV.
