Course Detail

Based on the braking clinics offered to instructors and police motor officers, the Braking Clinic (ABC) is a short course for endorsed riders to refine braking skills in normal and emergency situations.

The 2.5-hour ABC takes place on closed off parking lots, but at higher speeds than basic training. When braking at higher speeds, your bike responds differently – learn how to manage quick stops from 40+ mph. The clinic uses trackside chats to address crash hazards and myths about braking, and helps those with anti-lock braking systems discover its potential.

ABC is recommended for endorsed riders ready to take their skills to the next level, but does not meet state mandatory training requirements for riders to earn a motorcycle license.

ABC is appropriate for any rider with 2+ years riding experience. Particpants provide their own motorcycles and protective gear -- find full detail in What to Bring. Group rates and private courses are available.
