Basic RiderCourse (BRC)

The BRC consists of a 3-hour online eCourse that you complete on your own, plus 5 hours of interactive classroom learning and at least 10 hours of hands-on riding instruction. This course provides the beginning motorcyclist with the basic mental and physical riding skills necessary to minimize risk on the street. Learning is a fun, step-by-step process in a secured lot on our user-friendly training motorcycles. Motorcycles and helmets are provided.  Successful participants will receive a motorcycle road test waiver.

Basic RiderCourse 2 for License Waiver (BRC2-LW)

The BRC2-LW is designed for individuals 18 years or older that already have some street riding experience and have held a valid New York State Motorcycle Permit for at least one riding season. 

The course consists of a three-hour on-line eCourse and approximately five hours of practice riding exercises on your own street-legal motorcycle or scooter.  The riding exercises conclude with a skills evaluation.  Successful participants will receive a motorcycle road test waiver.

Introductory Motorcycle Experience (IME)

The Introductory Motorcycle Experience (IME) is just 2 hours long, and the class size is small – just 3 participants! The IME is a program to get familiar with the primary controls of a motorcycle. You'll be given the opportunity to operate the controls while astride the motorcycle as you "power-walk" on our practice range. The IME is a great way to "jump start" your BRC learning experience!  

Basic RiderCourse 2 for Skills Practice (BRC)

The BRC2 is a half-day class for experienced riders that already have their motorcycle endorsement.  The class is “range-only” - no classroom.   Using your own motorcycle, you’ll practice techniques for managing traction: stopping quickly, cornering, swerving…and the use of counterbalancing skills for slow, tight turns. Improve your ride!

MSF RiderCoach Preparation Course (RCPC)

Are you a “people person”?  Do you love motorcycling?  Are you committed to riding safely?  Maybe you’d like to join the Go Motorcycling family of MSF certified RiderCoaches.Each RCP lasts 8 days.  In addition, there are both pre-course activities (class observations/homework) and post-course mentoring (supervised teaching) before full certification is achieved.  See more at

UB Dental Teleconference - Forensic OdontologyMay 31, 2017

Forensic Odontology has been used historically in victim identification and bitemark evidence. Emerging dental technology is changing methods in victim identification and solving cases that reached a dead-end in the past. Bitemark analysis has come under increased scrutiny in the courtroom and have challenged the admissibility and reliability of this evidence. The controversies will be presented and participants will be able to make an educated opinion regarding the value of this evidence. The history and science of forensic dentistry will be explored as well as to what the future may hold. Dentistry will always have a role but like all aspects of our profession it is an ever changing world.
