GET READY

WHAT TO DO BEFORE A HARLEY DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLE CLASS

Get comfortable on a motorcycle before you even walk into your first class. Make the most of your class by getting in the saddle at Cape Cod Harley-Davidson® dealership and trying a Jumpstart™ demo. Getting knowledgeable before your class begins will get you on a bike and feeling comfortable faster.

You’ll mount the motorcycle, set your boots on the foot pegs and fire up the engine under the watchful eye of our trained personnel. And then, sitting comfortably on the motorcycle, you’ll give the throttle a twist and continue to shift through the gears – all while safely and securely attached to the Jumpstart™ platform.
