Adrenaline High

by Sarah Tuff

The dream: Easy Rider, baby
Get to: Belgrade, Montana
And enroll in: Rider's Edge Training Program at Yellowstone Harley-Davidson

The patented roar of a Harley seems as friendly as a purr after a four-day lesson in Zen and the art of motorcycle riding. To teach new riders how to handle their hogs, Harley-Davidson offers Rider's Edge courses in 37 states, including the ultimate in open-road freedom: Montana. Local fly-fishermen, lawyers, and moms on vacation from their own hell's angels need only show up to the Yellowstone Harley shop, near Bozeman, with a valid driver's license and the skills to ride a bicycle. Then it's a few evenings in the classroom and two days on the range, straddling a lightweight, easy-to-handle Buell Blast. (It'll be a while till you're blasting around mountain passes as in the picture to the right, though.) Sound too easy? Play hooky, even once, and you have to start over.
25-hour class, $300
