Thumbs up Re: Lee Parks- ARC

just completed it yesterday. Have the certificate.

A step above the advanced rider course. Many new concepts presented. Best explanation of springs and shocks I have ever heard.

A full day of classroom and riding with a coach watching every move.
For me, a very humbling experience. But I did improve as the day wore on.

Participating in Lee Parks' ARC -> yes

Many times.

Very, very much worth the time and money.

I have been to the classes on my K12RS, on the R12GS and, a week ago, on the K12LT.

The class appears to be geared for sport-rider wannabes, but it is not. The school running at Dutchess County College in Poughkeepsie, NY is typically attended by people on VFR's, few Triumphs and Ducs and a large BMW contingent (mainly RxxRT's). There is also a significant big-bike presence, including Wings and cruiser bikes - even HD Springer!

An enlightening experience. I have been fortunate to be able to participate at least once a year for several seasons.

You will be a better and more confident rider. Keep an eye for the Skills Days, once you complete the class itself. These cost half of what the class costs and you spend all 8 hours on the driving range. This is, of course, to improve on the skills you gained in the proper class.
