The MSF Basic Bike Bonding RiderCourse (BBBRC) has no classroom and is a partial day riding course designed to provide a low risk, effective, and enjoyable training event for participants just starting their riding endeavors. The course is typically only four to five hours of riding with breaks.

The overall aim of the BBBRC is to help riders develop smooth and precise control as they manipulate primary motorcycle controls and develop their riding procedures and techniques. Good bike bonding helps a rider automate physical skills so they can devote more attention to road and traffic conditions (searching and evaluating). It helps a rider to be a better decision-maker.

To participate you should have successfully completed the MSF Basic RiderCourse (BRC) or equivalent, or have sufficient riding skills and experiences to operate a motorcycle with basic proficiency. The BBBRC is a great transition for graduates of the Basic RiderCourse to continue skill development.

The BBBRC consists of 11 riding exercises that start with basic control reinforcement with a progression to advanced maneuvering. The following are examples of some of the exercises you'll ride:

  • www.MTII.com
    SPEED CONTROL & TURNS FROM A STOP
    Objective: To improve control operation in a straight line and when turning from a stop.

    This is a busy exercise with shortened clutch control lane, pause-n-go, tight turns from a stop, and practice of stronger acceleration than compared to the Basic RiderCourse.

  • www.MTII.com
    CORNERING & SWERVING
    Objective: To improve throttle control and maneuvering ability.

    A primary point of this exercise is to experience the results of a more aggressive, short-term acceleration and braking. Acceleration is accomplished in a straight line and tight turns are made at low speed.

  • www.MTII.com
    CURVES & SWERVES
    Objective: To improve cornering and swerving abilities.

    This exercise uses a continuous cornering circuit with a path leading to a swerve area. The exercise helps with improving cornering abilities along with precise and crisp steering inputs.

  • www.MTII.com
    LOW-SPEED DECREASING RADIUS CURVES
    Objective: To develop ability to negotiate low-speed decreasing radius curves.

    You will practice riding at steady speeds or practice reducing speed smoothly as the curves get tighter.

  • www.MTII.com
    LOLLIPOPS
    Objective: To improve control operation, judgement, and maneuvering ability.

    An exciting, yet challenging exercise, consisting of a circuit of slaloms and circles of progressively decreasing sizes. The nature of this exercise is to challenge riders within their skill level, it is an exercise that may be omitted from the course if riders or RiderCoaches determine that it is beyond participant current skill levels.

  • www.MTII.com
    SHARING THE ROAD
    Objective: To re-orient riders to traffic mix and to identify effective safety margin.

    This exercise is a continuous path of travel that reinforces the social aspect of sharing the road, gap selection and leaving space for others. This exercise allows riders to focus on continuous improvement of the application of skills and knowledge to manage risks.
