If you have never ridden a Honda motorcycle, or it’s been many years since you last took out a Suzuki motorcycle, a motorcycle safety class may be just what you need. Whether you’re looking to buy a used motorcycle or a new motorcycle, a training class is recommended. The main governing body for motorcycle training in the US, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), offers classes for both street motorcycles and dirt bikes..
For street bikes, there are two MSF classes in the vicinity of the Honda motorcycle dealer Contra Costa Powersports: Cycle Lloyd’s located in Oakley CA and Bay Area Motorcycle School in Benicia, CA. Both classes offer classroom instruction, live training on motorcycles and certified instructors. They provide the motorcycles, all you have to bring is some basic riding gear.
If you are new to dirt bike riding, or just puchased a Honda CRF250r and need some help clearing the triples, MSF offers a dirt bike riding school also. The dirt bike school is a fun, one day hands on training session open to anyone 6 years or older. Fortunately, there is an MSF dirt bike training class with 45 minutes of Concord Ca at the Carnegie State Vehicle Riding Area. The class if offered most weekends and during the week by appointment.
