If you're ready to roll, Harley-Davidson Riding Academy and Cowboy Harley-Davidson of Austin are ready to teach you!  You'll start off in the classroom, where our MSF certified Riding Academy instructors introduce you to your Harley-Davidson Street and teach you basic safety.

Then, it's on to the practice range where you'll learn on a 2015 Harley-Davidson Street 500 motorcycle. To obtain a Class M driver license in the state of Texas, individuals are required to take a DPS-approved motorcycle class.  So come on!  Successful completion will help you save on insurance and riding your bike safer and more enjoyable.
