I attended this course at the Hideout Harley-Davidson in Joplin, Missouri, a few weeks ago. With only ten students at a time, I felt like the students were getting a bang for our buck—every little detail possible was noted to us, praises and critique. It was hard work. We did a few hours in the classroom and about twelve hours total on the practice range. The instructors shared their cell phone numbers with us and encouraged us to contact them if we ever have questions or concerns, or even to meet with them privately for additional drills.

I know there are other courses available and I personally don't ride a Harley, but kudos to H-D for providing this opportunity. Worth every penny!

I did the Riding Academy with Harley-Davidson last month and it was awesome. It covered so much information and there was so much time on the bike. I lucked out that my instructor was a woman 'cause I was so nervous being surrounded by men but she was awesome. I never knew that I wanted a bike until I did this course. I went out and bought one the day that I "graduated" and have been riding everyday since.

I highly recommend this course if you are interested in learning how to ride. It was one of the best decisions that I have ever made.
