"Craig, and his crew at Pacific Motorcycle Training are pros, nuff said. They know their stuff and make a conscious effort to pass it along to you. If your goal is to know how to ride and be safe doing it, you've come to the right place. Prepare to feel confident on the open highway after completion; this course is the real deal."

"Excellent training provided. Ken, George , Mike , Chris were all good and helpful. They tell you which areas in your riding can be improved, provide constant feedback; provide individual attention. In total, it was fun as well as something new to learn. Training available in 3 locations - you can pick and chose the closest. I had to my reschedule my classes twice and they were happy to do so ."

"George and Chris were fantastic guides. My girlfriend and I took the intro course together. She was getting on a motorcycle for the first time and was very nervous. Those two guys, and another whose name I forget, helped her feel more comfortable on the bike. The two of us are definitely going back for intermediate and advanced courses!!"

"I had a great time taking this course! The instructors Craig and Issac, were patient with me and answered all of my questions. (I hope I didn't ask too many!) They were very informative and made me feel confident, and now I can be a better rider and also a better driver too! I would recommend this course to anyone in the Bay area no matter what level of rider you are."
