Get Your Training on at the Scoot Boot'n Boogie
We've lined up an all star cast of training options for 2019 provided by the BMW Performance Center US Rider Academy and Streetmasters. Whether you want an introduction to off-road or freshen up your cornering technique, rider training at the Rally will have something for you. And, all the offerings are subsidized at reduced rates just for rally guests.
BMW Performance Center Off-Road Training & Authority School
World class instructors on world class off-road machines. A mini version of what is offered at the BMW Performance Center in Greer, SC, the off-road course will challenge you and leave you smiling. Off-road training will give you the basics of off-road and build confidence to take your GS or dual sport to new heights.
Authority Training will train you just like Law Enforcement Motor Officers! You will experience actual Law Enforcement Motor Officer courses, taught by Law Enforcement Officers from the BMW Performance Center’s US Rider Academy. Learn the importance of head and eye placement along with clutch and throttle control. These are the basic skills that will enable you to have a flowing relationship with the motorcycle.
Both classes will have 60 spots available beginning Thursday morning through Saturday morning. The cost of this training is only $79 and you can register online.
Streetmasters Motorcycle Workshops
Walt Fulton and Nancy Foote return to the Rally with their very popular Streetmasters Motorcycle Workshops. Each workshop will begin with one hour of fast-paced classroom and discussion on mastering the “delayed late-apex” technique of cornering. After the classroom instruction, each participant will ride their own motorcycle in the precision exercises on a course set up at the rally site. If you ride two-up, be sure to include your pillion for no additional charge.
This will not be your typical “parking lot practice,” as it will be challenging and informative. For some, this will be a great opportunity to brush up on current skills, while offering newer riders an opportunity to learn great techniques from the knowledgeable Streetmasters staff.
Cost of the Streetmasters Motorcycle Workshop is $75, however every participant who successfully completes the course receives a $50 rebate from the BMW MOA Foundation. That's world class training for only $25! Register online beginning February 1.
GEARS Training for Young Riders
Our popular young rider program is back for 2019. And, we're pulling out all the magic to make 2019 the best program yet. Two versions of on-road training will be available offering participants their choice of beginner or advanced rider training. We've added some really cool information sessions with "Million-mile" Voni Glaves and special guest and You Tube sensation, Ryan from FortNine. Ryan will be on hand to entertain and inform young riders about the wonderful world of motorcycling.
Registration opens March 10th. The training is free including the use of a motorcycle for participants between the ages of 14 and 26. A $50 deposit is required to reserve your spot, but you will receive a refund when you complete the GEARS program.
