You MUST provide your own motorcycle for this riding clinic: All personally owned motorcycles must be street legal, in safe operating condition, and topped off with a full tank of gas. The Instructor will inspect your vehicle to ensure compliance. A T-CLOCK inspection form is available to help you prepare for the class. While the Instructor will not check all items, the T-CLOCK is an excellent tool to ensure your vehicle is in safe operating condition. Straight pipes or excessively loud bikes are NOT allowed and will be determined appropriate at the discretion of the Instructor. Tuition will not be refunded if your vehicle does not pass, or if mechanical issues/failure prevent you from completing the course.

You must bring proof of insurance and ownership/current registration for the motorcycle used in the workshop. If the registration and/or insurance are not in your name, than you must bring written permission from the owner allowing you to use the vehicle during the class.

If you are under 18 years of age, a waiver must be signed by your parent or guardian. Your parent or guardian can stop by the Idaho STAR main offices in Boise and sign paperwork before class, OR they may come to the beginning of class to sign the necessary paperwork. Another option is for you to print the waiver and have your parent or guardian take both pages to be notarized prior to the class, then bring the notarized waiver to class with you. You will not be allowed to ride in the course until the Instructor has an acceptable waiver on file. If you are not allowed to continue for this reason, your full tuition will be forfeited.
