THE CAN-AM THREE-WHEEL COURSE

The Course

In many states, including California, you can legally ride a three-wheeled motorcycle with a Class C driver’s license. However, whether you’re new to motorcycling or new to trikes, you’ll need a special skill set that doesn’t directly translate from two- or four-wheeled vehicles.

You’ll learn basic control: clutch/throttle, straight line riding, stopping, turning and shifting, as well as techniques for maneuvering on three wheels and finding a safe way through traffic. Experienced two-wheel riders will focus on behavioral changes such as transitioning from counter steer-and-lean to direct steering; avoiding the habit of putting a foot down for balance; and using the hand brake. Class size is limited to 12 per session, so you’ll always get the personal attention you need.
