$149 for Five-Day New-Rider Motorcycle Course ($299 Value)
Over the span of five consecutive days, Harley Davidson–certified instructors lead students through 25 hours of motorcycle lessons atop 492cc Buell Blast bikes. Students divide their time between the classroom, where they learn about their motorcycle and acquire basic safety skills, and the practice range, where they execute braking, turning, and maneuvers such as controlled skids and obstacle navigation. Upon completion of the course, students receive a MSF Basic RiderCourseSM Completion card, which may exempt them from taking the riding portion of their motorcycle-license test.
Students should arrive to class with a driver’s license or learner’s permit, the ability to ride a bicycle, and appropriate clothing, such as a heavy long-sleeve shirt or jacket, jeans or leather pants, sturdy footwear, full-fingered gloves, eyewear, and a helmet that meets DOT requirements. See the full schedule of upcoming courses.
Eagle’s Nest Harley-Davidson
Eagle’s Nest Harley-Davidson makes motorcycle pipe dreams come true with its stock of glistening hogs and Harley Davidson–certified instructors, who teach new riders the ins and outs of navigating the road. A far cry from Stockton’s first Harley-Davidson dealership, which was opened by Soapy Sudmyer in the 1930s, Eagle’s Nest Harley-Davidson has changed hands numerous times in the last 80 years, finally coming to rest in the paws of Terry Davis, who relocated the dealership to its current 46,000-square-foot facility. Here, hundreds of motorcycles, racks of clothing, and a parts department coexist in a winery-themed complex where massive wooden eagles overlook the showroom. Technicians swap out oil and repair broken parts in 14 service bays, and Buell Blast practice bikes help riders learn the rules of the road during extensive five-day training courses.
