Way down, south of dear Carolina, comes a motorcycle course to Greer, SC. 

It’s a bird, it’s a plane – it’s BMW, and they slapped the state with a fully stacked motorcycle course stuffed with the world’s best of the best.

This past Sunday, the BMW Performance Center housed the BMW U.S. Rider Academy – a closed course that helped riders master the fundamentals of riding, from straight-line riding to shifting, turning, and stopping. 

Wendy Naessens, a Junior instructor for the BMW U.S. Riders Academy, says that the Academy has “over 130 acres of play zone, some of the most amazing instructors in the world and a facility that is second to none.”

Beyond the basic Motorcycle Safety Foundations courses, BMW’s Academy also hosts track courses, private one-on-ones, on-road advanced technical classes, and a unique class led by women for women. 

The USRA Authority Course – made available at select locations – has also been popular since government officers and security professionals need the skillsets required by LEO to assist in tight turns, slow speed navigation, sightlines, and safety.
