I have done both; taken the course and taught it.
For some reason that I don't understand, where I teach we have rather a lot of experienced riders come through the Basic course (where you ride our bikes) but very few come through the Experienced course (where you ride your own). Of the two Experienced Rider Courses our site offered this year (and I taught both), neither was full; by the same token, we teach the Basic Rider Course through the end of October, and they were all full by the first part of August.
The BRC allows more time to cover some of the mental aspects of riding whereas the ERC assumes an awful lot of knowledge on the rider's part. I think an experienced rider will get enough out of either class to make it worth their time, IMHO.
