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.

"Wonderful experience. I had zero motorcycle experience going in. They covered all the basics and got me proficient in two days. The classroom exercises were straight forward and prepared me for the test. The practical exercises on the bike were a challenge for me at first but became second nature by the end of day two. I would recommend this class to both new and experienced riders looking to get a Colorado endorsement."

"Fantastic experience! The instructors made the entire class better than I ever expected. They were positive and always worked to build confidence in the riders. I've recommended this class to several people. Well worth the time and money!"

"This training is top notch. Great instructors who were able to get through to me. I'm too old to learn from my mistakes (or to make mistakes - I don't have any left!) , so gaining ability is paramount. The training format reminded me of EMT training. The price is subsidized, I think, and worth every penny. I'm using my Can Am Spyder with confidence and best safety practices."
― Robert Hastings
"The instructors were extremely knowledgeable, very nice and put us all at ease about getting on the bikes and performing the required exercises to obtain our licenses. Everything was well organized and well run."
― Armando Vasquez
"Bob and Doug are great instructors. Very professionally run course with great content. I learned a lot and had a great time."
― John Box
"I had some experience riding in the past but i wanted to do a license and training course to get my endorsement. The instructors Bob and Chadwick were amazing i saw other students in class who had never been on a motorcycle become competent riders. Total Control learning material was very informative and was easy to under stand. Thanks again Im pretty sure Ill be taking intermidiate and advanced courses in the future."
