Whether you are a new or experienced rider, or somewhere in between, we’ve got everything you need to get you safely on the road.


Motorcycle Boot Camp is basic training for anyone ready to ride. We know there are a ton of questions about how to get started, and we want to make it easy. We’ll start with the basics and go headlights to tailpipes, getting you up to speed on everything from learning to ride to gear that fits your style.

A great introduction to the world of riding, learn about everything from the headlights to the tailpipes, how to tell a Sportster from a Softail, and which bike is perfect for you.

Bootcamp happens on the first Saturday of every month and is free to attend! Registration starts at 10:00am and the fun starts at 10:30am.




The Harley-Davidson® JUMPSTART Rider Experience combines a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and a specially-designed, stationary support stand.

You’ll mount your motorcycle, set your boots on the footpegs and fire up the engine under the watchful eye of trained personnel. Give the throttle a twist and hear that unforgettable Harley-Davidson® sound. Sitting comfortably on the bike, you’ll continue to shift through the gears – all safely and securely attached to the JUMPSTART™ platform.

Ready to try it out? Stop in or call us today at 919-832-2261.



Never ridden before? Don’t sweat it. The Harley-Davidson® Riding Academy New Rider Course is designed to get you comfortable on a bike and give you the skills you need to ride with confidence. Offered only at select H-D® dealers, the New Rider Course provides you with expert guidance from H-D® certified coaches.

In the classroom, you’ll get to know the motorcycle you’ll be riding and learn the basics of rider safety skills. On the practice range, you’ll learn braking and turning, along with maneuvers like controlling skids and surmounting obstacles. When you’re finished you’ll get a completion card. This card exempts you from having to take the riding portion of your motorcycle license test.
