What Harley calls "Riders Edge" in the US is the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) New Rider Course (NRC). It is a half day of classroom work and two full days on the bike in the parking lot doing all the drills. In the US at least most states waive the road test for motorcycle endorsement on your drivers license for successfully completing the NRC and completing any MSF riding course usually gets you a discount on your insurance. I have never seen it get you a discount on a motorcycle. Most motorcycle companies front the majority of the cost of offering the course as a means to bring in new customers. If students had to pay the full cost of the course, few if any would take it, reducing the number of riders on the road, and opportunities for the motorcycle industry to make money off sales, service and parts.

I live in a parallel universe but have a vacation home in reality.
