Classes begin June 11

The road is open to learn about basic motorcycle riding elements. Enroll today at Moraine Park Technical College to get started. Several openings exist in the Motorcycle Rider courses offered at the Fond du Lac campus. Classes run from June 11 through September 3.

Beginning or returning riders will gain hands-on experience in the basic skills of motorcycling: straight-line riding, turning, shifting, braking and the mental skills needed for control.

Instructor Tom O’Meara was one of only nine instructors throughout the nation to receive the 2004 Outstanding Rider Coach for Wisconsin by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). He has been with Moraine Park since 1993.
