Absolutely. No one has trouble riding at 55 mph+ down the road. If you can't lock your handlebars while in a low speed turn and scrape your pegs/floorboards without putting your foot down, then you need this course. Learning to ride in full control of your motorcycle at low speeds makes you an overall safer and more confident rider, and it also makes riding much more enjoyable.
There is no minimum mileage requirement. Riders should be comfortable with the operation of their motorcycle and the motorcycle's controls. In general, a rider with 3,000 miles riding experience should have this comfort level.
It’s possible. We recommend that crash bars be installed on the motorcycle to protect the engine and saddlebags. If crash bars are installed, you can cover the spots on the bars that would likely be scratched in the event of a fall with sections of heavy-duty hose, such as heater hose, cut lengthwise and secured to the bars with duct tape or plastic ties. You can also remove your saddlebags for the class.
Not at all. Linked brakes have little to no effect on applying the techniques taught in this course.
No. Occasionally, we get riders whose basic rider skills are so poor that we have to stop them from finishing the exercises because they may hurt themselves or other riders. For these riders, we advise them to go back and take the beginner rider course. Their money is refunded. We usually know that they are a danger to themselves and other riders by the second exercise.
This course teaches the experienced rider the same techniques used by Police Motor Officers to ride in complete control of the motorcycle while at low speeds and in tight confined areas such as parking lots and side roads. The Motor Officer exercises are modified for the average civilian rider and are taught in an easy-to-learn skills progression format.

For the most part, no. The same techniques you learn riding solo apply to riding two up. Nothing is different except that you may not be able to lean the motorcycle quite as far because of the added weight.
