"This was a truly amazing experience. I have been riding for over 15 years and still learned a lot from the instructors. Instructors were very informative, supportive and understanding."
― Alexander Yin
"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."
― Ben W
"Fantastic course. Both Isaac and Craig were great instructors, very lively and engaging. Overall, the course was very informative, and the practical portion of the course left me with a much greater understanding of how to be a better, safer rider."
― Boris Boukhonine
"Often it's hard to retrain the way you do something. I've rode 1 form of a motorcycle or another since I was a child. This course was worth taking especially when you consider how it improves your safety while riding. I'm thankful to the instructors, it was an enjoyable experience that I'm sure will pay of while riding."
― Ten C
"This is my second time. Both timed have been great. The instructors are very knowledgeable and friendly. I've already recommended the class to a few friends."
― Gabrielle Baccari
"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!"
― Joseph Fontana
"Great place to start your way into motorcycles and how to ride properly. Tim, Eric, Chris and Sheila did a great job keeping everybody safe and learning."
― Ramiro Rinaudo
