Base riders volunteered their time Sept. 16-18 to complete an advanced motorcycle safety certification course here.

By finishing the course, they are now available to teach the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Advanced RiderCourse to Hill Air Force Base’s rider population.

According to the MSF website, the Advanced RiderCourse is available to riders with basic skills, and provides more in-depth riding techniques and procedures than practiced in the Basic RiderCourse.

It consists of activities that emphasize personal risk management and self-assessment strategies, and on-cycle exercises with emphasis in cornering, braking and swerving.

The MSF Advanced RiderCourse is offered to any DoD ID card holder through the 75th Air Base Wing Safety Office, with active-duty military personnel having priority.

Each class can accommodate 12 personnel and is approximately five hours long with 10 range exercises and some classroom activities.

Those seeking to apply for the course must have a valid motorcycle permit, license, or endorsement. In addition, riders must provide their own street-legal and safe motorcycle.

For more information about both courses, contact Patrick Hansen at 801-586-3066.
