Dream It! – As a design engineer, learn how acceleration, speed, friction, and gravity effect a motorcycle in motion. Conduct your own experiments in our Engineering Lab which includes tracks, ramps, and loops. Choose a motorcycle tour using an interactive world map to learn about your bike’s mechanical systems, solve math challenges, and see fantastic destinations.

Build It! – Learn about engine parts and how they work together to create a smooth and safe ride. Build your dream ride using interchangeable custom motor parts and accessories, including seats, mirrors, tall pipes, and engine components. Style your ride in the custom shop with magnetic flames, saddle bags, and a personalized license plate.

Ride It! – Role-play as a motorcycle-riding community service officer, complete with videos which help you learn about traffic safety, hand signals, and preparing for a trip. Enjoy a first-person riding experience, including a throttle to control the speed of your bike, working turn signals, costumes, audio effects, and more!
