RHINELANDER - Normally when we think of classes, the inside of a classroom comes to mind. But on Saturday several people went to Nicolet College for a basic motorcycle rider course.


The class teaches riders the basics about motorcycles and also teaches them riding techniques.

"[It] gives them some confidence that maybe they didn't have on the bike and how to control one. They can [also] get their license after going through the class," said Nicolet College Rider Coach Mike Murray.

Tim Weber from Tomahawk was one of the riders who participated in the class. He wanted to learn how to ride more effectively.

"It's great because it started me out from the very basics right on through to some of the techniques that I'll need for effective driving on the highway," said Weber.

There will several more classes throughout the summer. For more information click on the link below.
