With high gas prices and good weather stoking sales and interest in riding, Harley-Davidson of Tifton in Georgia is building a facility to expand its rider training offerings.

"We normally try to train anywhere from 140 to 160 students per year," riders' education program manager Jessica Hurst told WALB. "Hopefully, it will get higher than that. We would like to have one class a week."

That means building a training area, including a classroom and range. The dealership hopes to double its class offerings.

"It's something else to do besides just ride in your car,” says Hurst. “It's freedom I guess you could say. It's a blast."
