"This is a great course for anyone looking to learn how to operate and ride a motorcycle correctly and also a great way to get you licence. The team are friendly, positive and ready to help you no matter your level of experience. If I can convince my wife to become more than a passenger, this is definitely the place we will go. Thank you again to Ken, Chris and Kyle for all the great feedback."

"Craig and Kurt were some of the best instructors I’ve ever interacted with, very passionate about their craft and making sure you’re learning safely and effectively. If you are interested in learning how to ride and get your M1 license, want input on relearning the basics, and/or learn advanced techniques, this is the place to do so."

"Chris, Lisa, George (?) all great, mellow, patient with all the students. Identified when certain issues needed correction and coached individually. All bikes were in good running order and they had gear people could borrow if they needed to. Instruction was thorough but u realized how much more you need. Good enough to get u started and confident to begin your journey but u (I) need to practice !!"

"Instructors (Chris and Sheila) were awesome, knowledgeable but also used humor and personal stories to help us remember things better. Learning how to ride on the range was much more intense than I expected - went from learning what the clutch and throttle is on the bike to practicing weaving around cones, taking a quick turn, upshifting and then swerving past an ‘obstacle’ in the road. Great class overall!"

"Awesome experience! Chris, Kyle, and Isaac are great instructors. They will correct your mistakes every time they see something wrong because they really want to prevent you from building bad habits. I recommend this course for anyone interested in learning to ride. Don't be intimidated, most of the class has never touched a bike before and they start you off really easy until you're comfortable!"
