"Absolutely fantastic training for the newbie!! I was riding a motorcycle by the end of the day- it was fabulous! The teachers, both in the classroom and on the range, are all very experienced (10+years) riders. They stayed calm even when I didn't. The classroom instruction is thorough but not excessive; I would have loved a few more hours on the range since I was SO new. I will definitely be taking more classes with them!"

"Had a truly informative experience. All of the teachers are patient and more importantly, extremely knowledgeable. They want you to succeed and create an environment for you to ask as many questions as needed. I highly recommend taking basic courses here."
