Motorcycle Ohio


    In case you or someone you know or love is considering riding a motorcycle legally in the state of Ohio, or if that person has ridden for years, but never bothered to get a motorcycle endorsement, or if you'd just like to take a class to find out what it's like to ride a motorcycle, here's your chance.

    The state of Ohio sponsors a program called Motorcycle Ohio, which offers the "Basic Rider Course", a 3-day motorcycle training course, with 12 hours of on-motorcycle instruction and 4 hours of classroom instruction.

    Passing this course gets you a waiver from having to pass the state's on-cycle test, which some say is quite difficult on "large" motorcycles.

    The course costs $25 and signups begin Monday, February 10, 2010. Classes fill very quickly as this course is extremely popular and inexpensive.

    Go to http://www.motorcycle.ohio.gov for more information. Click on "Basic Rider" to register or find out more on the basic rider course.

    The experienced rider course (ERC) is also available and is a fun one-day on-cycle course for riders endorsed for a minimum of one year.

    The Advanced Rider course - Sportbike techniques (ARC-ST) is a challenging one-day course aimed at improving riding skill by utilizing some tactics common in riding sportbikes, but is not limited to sportbike riders. I took the course last summer and had a blast, and learned a surprising amount in such a short time.
