TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Motorcyclists revved their engines Sunday, getting ready to hit the roads as safely as possible.

Tifton Harley-Davidson hosted the last day of its new rider course for 12 soon-to-be riders. 

The new students learned in a classroom for two days, before coming out to practice riding, turning, and braking. 

Motorcycle Instructor Bart Williams treks up from Thomasville to teach the new riders.

He's been an instructor for 17 years and wants these students to be safe on the road.

"We do give motorcyclists who try to abuse their privilege. And because of those they sometimes give cycling a bad name," said Williams.

Williams says drivers should stay calm around motorcyclists, but they can be closer than they appear.
