Motorcycle courses are intended to teach you how to drive a motorcycle safely and legally. Remember, alcohol and riding a motorcycle do not mix. Avoid motorcycle dealerships that use misogyny and alcohol to bolster sales. For motorcycle dealers to give the impression that drinking and riding is acceptable is unconscionable and should be subject to legal restrictions. Become part of the solution and not part of the problem. Help keep riders safe and reject drinking and riding. According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), 29% of motorcycle rider fatalities in 2017 were found to be riders that had been riding without a motorcycle license and without proper training.
