Follow-on Training (ARC)

This follow-on training meets or exceeds the Air Force “Initial Training Requirement” listed in DAFI 91-207 and hones a rider’s skills and helps develop 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 and crash avoidance skills, through advanced cornering, braking, and swerving techniques, including trail-braking, decreasing radius curves, threshold braking, plus braking and swerving 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.

This class meets or exceeds the Air Force “Initial Training Requirement” listed in DAFI 91-207NOTE:  If you are already a licensed rider, and have your own motorcycle, you can take this class for your “initial” training instead of taking the Initial Rider Training.

Prerequisites:  Solid command and control of your motorcycle.  This 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 Skills Practice Course. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:   You must provide your own, fully insured street-legal motorcycle, and provide all required riding gear.  Your motorcycle must be in good working order with good tire tread and no leaking forks.  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.
