Advanced Rider Course (ARC)

Sometime after the BRC2, (two to six months) the ARC is highly encouraged for all riders, but is mandatory for Sportbike Riders. The ARC meets the same requirements as the Military Sportbike RiderCourse (MSRC).

For experienced riders, this is an excellent class to take immediate following the BRC2.

Prerequisites: Solid command and control of your motorcycle. Although AFI-91-207 lists the ARC as an intermediate class, it is not a class for riders with minimum time on their motorcycles. Students lacking sufficient skills will be identified early in the course and dismissed, and referred to the Safety Office for the BRC2.

The ARC is an introduction to advanced riding skills that hones a rider’s skills, and helps with personal risk management. This is a one-day class, on a much larger training range, that allows for more realistic road speeds, up to 45 mph, that enhances both basic operating skills and crash avoidance skills, through advanced cornering, braking, and swerving techniques, including trail-braking, decreasing radius curves, threshold braking, plus swerving and braking in a curve.

The course is beneficial for riders on any type of street motorcycle, and includes several interactive activities to improve perception and hazard awareness, behavioral issues, using self-assessment and judgment

IMPORTANT NOTE: You must provide your own, fully insured street-legal motorcycle, and provide all required riding gear. You must have a motorcycle license or endorsement, current registration, and proof of insurance. You may use someone else’s motorcycle, but must provide a signed waiver from the owner, along with a copy of their drivers license. Come to the training range with a FULL TANK OF GAS; you will use more fuel than you think.

Required PPE: Durable pants (jeans or equivalent) with no holes that expose skin, long-sleeve shirt or jacket, eye protection (sunglasses or helmet visor), full-fingered gloves (leather preferable), sturdy over-the-ankle shoes or boots (canvas tennis shoes are not acceptable), and a helmet that meets DOT standards.
