Motorcycle Safety

American Suzuki is a founding member of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. At Suzuki we want every ride to be safe and enjoyable. So always wear a helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never ride under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Study your owner's manual and always inspect your motorcycle before riding. Always supervise young riders.

Save Time, Money, and Become a Superior Rider

Whether you're just starting out, or have been riding for some time, there's an MSF RiderCourse for you.

Suzuki recommends that you get the proper training before you start riding a motorcycle. Traffic-safety experts widely acknowledge the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's (MSF) RiderCourse as the best introduction to motorcycling anywhere in the world. If you're a beginning rider, the "Motorcycle RiderCourse: Riding and Street Skills" will put you on the road to safety, right from the start. Even if you're a veteran rider, the "Experienced RiderCourse" will fine-tune your skills.

Over 1 million motorcyclists have graduated from a RiderCourse. Benefits include improved skills, experience and confidence.

Over 20 states waive some portion of your motorcycle license/endorsement test--if you've completed a RiderCourse.

In addition, graduates of training courses such as the MSF's RiderCourse often qualify for insurance discounts of 10 to 15 percent.

For the course nearest you, call 1-800-446-9227.
