"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!!"

"This was an incredible class. My only experience on a motorcycle was a Honda Trail 90 when I was a kid. I learned so much and now I only need to pass the written test at DMV to get the motorcycle endorsement on my license. This course is worth every penny!"
