BMW Motorcycle Rider Training Now Available In U.S.
The courses are recommended for those with intermediate riding experience, and a range of BMW motorcycles can be rented at the Performance Center. Whether you're an off-road rider, touring fiend, or are more sport-bike oriented, the drills and instruction available at the Performance Center are aimed at bringing riding skills and confidence to a whole new level.
The Performance Center’s off-road program is based on the curriculum at the BMW Enduro Park in Hechlingen and involves a variety of drills and exercises, ranging from basic bike set-up, body position, throttle and clutch control, to braking and cornering. After that, riders will then hit the trail with a BMW-certified instructor.
There is also on-road instruction available, which stresses the same sort of control and finesse, only on the asphalt. The on-road course also involves some dual-sport exercises which BMW claims will help every street rider handle sections of gravel or unpaved road.
“It was a very physically demanding eight hours, but we all learned so much,” said one recent attendee of the program. “If you ever have the chance to attend, I highly recommend it. I also recommend you rent one of their motorcycles as opposed to using your own... I think everyone fell but no one got hurt.”
The program boasts a ratio of four students to one instructor, so access to the instructor should be maximized.
