Required Riding Gear

Having the right type of motorcycle riding gear is essential to your RiderCourse experience:

Helmet: A helmet must be in good condition, a Department of Transportation sticker affixed and it must fit properly. There is a good selection of helmets available at each site for the Basic RiderCourse students to use.

Eye Protection: Students must have suitable unbreakable eye protection

Gloves: Keep hands comfortable, functional and protected. Come in an infinite variety of all seasons. They must be full finger (no half finger gloves allowed and leather is preferred).

Jacket and Pants: Long sleeves and jeans that will resist abrasion and protect against sunburn, windburn, dehydration or hypothermia. Light colors or reflectivity increase a riders visibility. Baggy or wide leg jeans are not permitted due to the loose jeans getting caught on the pegs and controls. Sweatpants and leggings are also not permitted.

Boots: Provide protection against foot and ankle injuries and give you a good grip on the pegs and roadway surfaces. Boots must cover 1 inch over the ankle bone for the RiderCourse. The ankle bone cannot be exposed.
