TEAM Arizona took a major leap forward last month towards expanding its three wheel training offerings. In February 2014, ten RiderCoaches participated in the Motorcycle Safety Foundations’s 3WBRC certification course. All ten RiderCoaches passed with flying colors and are now capable of coaching the 3WBRC course. For information about the 3WBRC course, and the ability to obtain the motorcycle endorsement when successfully passing this course, please visit the TEAM Arizona website (click here).
When asked about expanding the rider training options, TEAM Arizona owner Ron Arieli replied, “This is at the core of who we are. We exist to provide rider education services and that means to three wheel riders also.”
We wouldn’t have been able to complete the certification course without our valued sponsors. We would like to thank RideNow Powersports Chandler, RideNow Powersports Surprise, Chandler Harley-Davidson®, and Harley-Davidson® of Scottsdale for providing training vehicles for the certification course. We’d also like to thank Don Morris and Carlos Rangel for providing their private vehicles for the weekend too.
Why Should the Motorcycle Community Care?
Simply, having more certified RiderCoaches means more course date options at more convenient locations. This also means we have better trained, more educated riders on the road. This is a complete win-win for three wheel riders in Arizona.
Also, we’ll be able to offer mid-week one-on-one training courses. Currently, courses are provided at these two locations:
In the near future, the 3WBRC will be available at these following locations:
- Tucson RideNow Powersports
- Tucson Harley Davidson
- Glendale Community College
- Sierra Vista Buena High School
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation is also looking to release a follow up training course to help current three wheel riders enhance their skills. We should be seeing that sometime in 2015.
Three Wheel Vehicles Available for Training
This means individuals can sign up for 3WBRC course, reserve a Spyder in advance, and then use the Can Am Spyder during the course to obtain their motorcycle endorsement.
The big win here is that people can try these vehicles before making a purchase.
If you, or someone you know, has questions about the three wheel training course, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm.
