"Amazing ! I got more than what I expected. Full of fun and excellent training. The best in Bay area. Chris and Issac are excellent."
― Krishnaraj Venkatesan
"I had a great time and learned a lot! I went in with 0 motorcycle experience. The classroom time was packed with information and a good preparation for the next session on the range. There's almost no wasted time during the classroom time and time on the motorcycle. They really condensed everything they could. It's also pretty fun."
― Rodolphe Courtier
"The instructors Isaac and Chris were awesome. I would recommend taking the motorcycle course with them for absolute beginners or for riders with prior experience. I appreciate the way the whole course has been put together. Be it classroom sessions or the on the range. I have learnt a lot from these fantastic people over two days. Thank you guys!"

"Had a good experience. Craig and the other instructors were more than patient with there teaching. Had an awesome time and learned a lot from this motorcycle school. Highly recommend it to anyone. Shout out To the class of August 29-30 2019. Ride safe everyone."
― Carlos Ahumada
"First and foremost the training is exceptional, it prepares you mentally, emotionally, and physically about the thrill and threats of a successful motorcycle riding experience. The instructors were spot on with their classroom and range feedback. I honestly think the class should have an extra day of riding to get the last bit of jitters out of the newly minted rider. As for the cost, it’s worth every penny and then some."
― Jeff Stibling
