    BMW Performance Center Authority Training

    At the Iowa National, I managed to get a spot in the training provided for what was called the Authority training, which was for LEO motorcycle cop training. I enjoyed the session so much that I threw caution to the wind and signed up to take the two day course at the Performance Training Center in South Carolina. Have my date scheduled at the end of October and really looking for it. Is there anyone else that attended the training at the National planning on moving forward with additional LEO training? I'm not a MC copper but felt the training was so good that it might just give me more of an edge to keep on ridding well past my 67 years young age. Would love to hear from anyone who takes the training in the future so I can compare notes as to how it progresses. I think I'm in the first group open to the public so looking forward to both the training and helping out with suggestions on the effectiveness of the course.....

    Check if your state MSF Program offers the "Ultimate Bike Bonding Course". It is done on your own bike and includes many skills included in LEO moto school. Try that first and then spend the big bucks for BMW school

    That sounds like it will be a great experience
    Hopefully you can post up on how you liked it.

    Voni, already done and approved. Hadn’t thought of it until a new friend and new bmw rider Wendy Naessens from Chicago suggested to apply. The course is a bit costly but the scholarship really helps to bring it in line for me. I will be glad to post back here with my impressions of the course and skills learned during my first association with a full immersion training session.......now I have to work my butt off to get into shape physically for the two day ridding exercise, so its the activity that keeps on producing good results.
