* Normal is a ride that welcomes beginners. The roads are wide and paved. The turns are smooth and easy. The speed is relatively low.
* Intermediate is like most the rides we’ve done. The roads aren’t all perfectly paved. The turns might be a bit tight. The speed is not too low.
* Advanced is a ride that needs certain skills, as the roads are difficult and the speed is relatively high.
* Expert is for riders who can control their Harley’s 110%.
