WKU Announces 2013 Motorcycle Rider Safety Course dates

motorcycle mirrorBOWLING GREEN, Ky. (3/16/13) – WKU Lifelong Learning has selected 14 Motorcycle Rider Safety dates that will be offered throughout 2013. Courses are available for motorcycle riders ages 16 or over, including beginners and experienced riders.
 
Courses include classroom and practical instruction taught by experienced motorcyclists who are certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Basic RiderCourse teaches fundamental riding skills, motorcycle safety, emergency braking and the different types of motorcycles, their controls and how they operate. Students also learn how to create their own strategy for riding in traffic and dealing with critical situations. Kentucky residents who successfully complete the course receive a license waiver for the skill test to obtain their motorcycle license. Motorcycles and helmets are provided.
 
Basic RiderCourse 2 is for riders who have a current motorcycle permit or license, access to a street-legal cycle and previous riding experience. Students discuss the mental and physical aspects of safe riding, risk management and visibility and lane position optimization as well as motorcycle inspection and care. Students put the techniques of managing traction, stopping quickly, cornering and swerving into practice. The course also includes an optional skill evaluation and knowledge test for Kentucky riders seeking a license waiver.
 
Many insurance companies offer discounts to riders who have completed these courses. For additional information on course fees, schedules and more, visit the Motorcycle Rider Education website, go to www.wku/edu/ll or call WKU Lifelong Learning at (270) 745-1912.
