Iron Buffalo Motorcycle Training

Designed by Total Control Training, Inc, the 3-Wheel Riding ClinicSM is designed to provide the beginning 3-wheel rider with knowledge, confidence, and 3-wheel driving skills-practiced in a safe controlled environment. Schedules are set over a 2-day course. Classroom sessions present text and lecture coupled with hands-on activities. Each classroom session is followed by time spent on the riding range practicing the new skills presented in the classroom. Under the direction of skilled instructors, each student is coached through maneuvers until both student and instructor are satisfied with the progress. Students will be trained using their own trike or sidecar with proof of insurance. Students will take a written and skills test during the course, the successful completion of this course enables riders to receive their Colorado 3-wheel motorcycle endorsement with no further testing at the Colorado DOR.

Note: If providing your own trike or sidecar you need to complete the T-CLOC form and bring it with you to class.

You must have an endorsement or instructional permit to legally ride your motorcycle to class or a testing session.

"Our instructors wee amazing. They are very knowledgeable, patient, kind, and have great teaching methods. They are a good team. If I had reason enough we would take the class again just for fun. We haven't purchased our Spyder yet but their teachings helped me to be a better driver in general - more thoughtful when it comes to two- and three-wheelers on the road."
