Free MSF course

I was notified at work that HD is sponsoring a free MSF basic rider course to active or retired first responders, EMS, Firefighters and LEO'S. The course is Thursday and Friday evenings from 6pm-9pm. Saturday and Sunday mornings until noon. Week nights are class work, weekends are actual riding. HD states they will supply the bikes on the weekends, you must supply the riding gear. If you qualify, it's a $300 free course and reported to lower your insurance. Go to:ridefree.harley-davidson.com/americanheroes for more information. I've signed up for free and plan to attend in April. Just thought I'd share this whether you have a license endorsement or not. I'm all about free training, and it matters not what you own.

Yes, it does apply to to active, reserve, or former with an Honorable Discharge. I know because it saved me this past July. Kinda felt guilty not owning or wanting a Harley but I got over it.

I guess that I am na´ve. I thought that the MSF courses were free. I now believe it must be different state to state. Here in Pennsylvania all of the MSF courses are free to the participants. I assume the state subsidizes them. Good to see that HD sees the value and is willing to help.

It's normally a $300 course according to HD. One of my coworkers saw the email posted locally and let me know about it. If it enhances my skills and lowers my insurance even a tad, it's well worth the time for me. I appreciate them doing this.

What does it cost to take the BRC?

The BRC is FREE to Pennsylvania residents with a valid Pennsylvania driver's license or motorcycle permit.
The Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program is funded through an additional fee that you pay when you obtain, renew or replace a motorcycle permit or license.
Out-of-state residents pay $250 to take the BRC.

She must be a great riding companion, hope wifey grows more the same passion on bike riding instead of usual biking and passenger.

She was the one that bugged ME to get these bikes. You see I was happy with my old Yamaha 650sp. and
she wouldn't ride on it no-mater what. When the temp gets to the 70's we will do a lot of over night trips, say 250/400 miles away.
