The Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic (IRC) is the perfect next step for newer riders who are looking to improve their skills on their own bike as well as riders that have recently gotten back into riding after years off. This course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction.

You will learn intermediate-level skills required to safely operate a full-sized motorcycle and understand the basic psychology of riding to help make better choices on the road. Topics covered include having a proper mental state, understanding two-wheeled vehicle dynamics, cornering strategies for multiple types of turns, emergency braking and evasive maneuvers.

Students completing the IRC report significantly improved riding skills, confidence and the ability to make better choices about when and how to ride. The IRC is also used extensively by the Navy and Marine Corps as “Level 2” training (within 60 days of completing a beginner course) and “Refresher” training (every three years) to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities. It is officially recognized for Level 2 training by the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, which satisfies requirements for active duty service members and civilians to get their base sticker to ride on base.

Although designed primarily as safety course, the IRC is both challenging and fun. The Clinics are done in one 7–8-hour day on your own motorcycle. The cost is $275*, with group rates available for 10 or more attendees (contact us). Although not a requirement, it’s also advisable to have read the book Total Control before you get there. Copies are available at fine bookstores and on this website.

The IRC is based on the most current research in rider safety, utilizes modern training methods and has been proven to enhance student outcomes. Come experience what all the buzz is about by signing up for a Total Control IRC today!
