It's riding season and Harley-Davidson Riding Academy is back! If you're brand new to riding, rode back in the day, or just getting your endorsement, the New Rider Course is for you. It's designed to give you the confidence you need to get on the road.
What is Riding Academy?
Riding Academy is all about learning to ride. You’ll get plenty of in-class and on-range training, led by pro instructors at Southside Harley-Davidson. Our coaches are Motorcycle Safety Foundation® (MSF) and H-D® Certified.
During your Riding Academy experience you’ll learn about acceleration and braking, shifting and turning, as well as special maneuvering skills such as controlling skids and avoiding obstacles. Riding Academy grads earn a MSF Basic RiderCourse Completion Card, which allows you to bypass the written and riding test when you go to get your endorsement at an Indiana BMV. It can help get you a discount on motorcycle insurance, too.
