HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah —
Base riders volunteered their time from September 16-18 to take an advanced motorcycle safety certification course here.
Upon completing the course, they are now available to teach the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Advanced RiderCourse course to the Hill Air Force Base motorcycle population.
According to the MSF website, the Advanced RiderCourse is available for riders with basic skills and provides more in-depth riding techniques and procedures than those practiced in the Basic RiderCourse.
It consists of activities that emphasize personal risk management and self-assessment strategies, as well as on-bike drills emphasizing cornering, braking and yawing.
The MSF Advanced RiderCourse is offered to any DoD ID holder through the 75th Air Base Wing Security Office, with active duty military personnel given priority.
Each class seats 12 people and lasts about five hours with 10 shooting exercises and some classroom activities.
Individuals wishing to enroll in the course must hold a valid motorcycle permit, license or endorsement. Additionally, riders must provide their own road-legal and safe motorcycle.
For more information on both courses, contact Patrick Hansen at 801-586-3066.
