Riding a motorcycle and participations in a RiderCourse requires physical stamina, motor coordination, and mental alertness. Be sure you get a good night’s sleep before all class dates.

If you are under a doctor’s care or have any physical or mental conditions that could affect your ability to operate a motorcycle safely, PLEASE tell the Rider Coach prior to the start of your course.
Failure to complete a course due to a medical condition of which Ride Arizona MTC was not made aware will result in the forfeiture of your tuition.
We ride in both rain and shine, so bring sunblock and/or rain gear to be prepared. If you should get hungry before we break for lunch, please bring snacks if needed.
- It is best to arrive 15 minutes before all classes (classroom/range). We need to start on time. If you should be more than seven minutes late, you will be asked to reschedule/dropped from the class and be charged for a rescheduling fee.
- We are sometimes subject to weather or unforeseen conditions, so leave yourself at least one-hour leeway at the end of the training day; course times may be extended.
