INSTRUCTORS Lakeshore’s Rider Coaches are the best around! They are credentialed through both the Wisconsin Motorcycle Safety Program, and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.

The best place for a new rider to start once they’ve made the decision to ride! This course includes a three-hour interactive online Basic eCourse, approximately five hours of classroom activities and at least 10 hours of motorcycle riding exercises.
