Thanks for sharing that info Peter Stokes!
Good Idea! Motorcycle OHIO recommends getting some refresher training every two years to help correct any Bad Habits (riding that is) that you might pick up along the way.
AND you can even get Dirt Bike or Trail Bike courses. Search here https://www.dirtbikeschool.org/

I signed up for the advanced rider class (BRS-2). The last time I took the class was back in 2007 on the RT … it was fun.
This should be a blast on the G310R.
What’s pathetic though, is that there is only “ONE” BRS-2 class offered for the ENTIRE year in Cuyahoga County.
Motorcycle Ohio preaches motorcycle safety, refresher class every two years, but then only offers one class for 12 people
for the whole year???
I felt guilty taking a spot from someone who might REALLY need the class.
