Rider’s Edge, the Harley-Davidson Academy of Motorcycling, recently celebrated a significant milestone: training 300,000 students on the basics of safe biking.
The New Rider’s Course, which began in 2000, uses classroom instructions and hands-on training to educate new bikers on necessary skills. The Skilled Rider Course helps experienced riders hone their skills and brush up on oft-overlooked laws and procedures. 91 percent of the students who enroll in Rider’s Edge are new riders.
Students who complete the course are eligible to receive a Colorado motorcycle license and possible insurance discounts. The other way to receive a motorcycle endorsement on your Colorado license is to pass a written test at the Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Rider’s Edge program is available in 43 states, including Colorado. Like other motorcycle training programs, it uses the curriculum from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Basic Rider Course.
We congratulate Harley-Davidson for their efforts in educating new riders about the basics of motorcycling. We encourage new and seasoned riders alike to consider enrolling in a motorcycle training program as they significantly reduce the risk of motorcycle accidents.
Inexperienced bikers who cause injury or death can be held liable for their actions. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, we might be able to help obtain compensation for damages. Take advantage of our free consultations and call now: (866) 377-3800.
