"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!"
― Kristi Swensson Burdsall
"Such a great experience. It is clear that the instructors have a passion for riding bikes, most importantly, safe riding. The classroom was very helpful to understand the rules and theories. The riding sessions allowed for practical application of those principles. Chris, Craig and Isaac were great instructors!"
