"Ken and Chris made the experience educating and fun. Craig made powerpoints in depth as well as entertaining, and Lisa was very sweet and encouraging. Thanks to all the instructors for keeping us safe."

"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
"Ken and Lisa are amazing instructors both inside and outside the classroom. With over 50 years of combined motorcycle experience they provide excellent and detailed instruction on how to safely handle a motorcycle on the road. They made the course extremely fun and entertaining. I would recommend Pacific Motorcycle training to anyone riding a motorcycle from beginner to veteran. I plan to come back for the Intermediate course in a few years."
― Michael Roberts
"Instructors (Chris and Sheila) were awesome, knowledgeable but also used humor and personal stories to help us remember things better. Learning how to ride on the range was much more intense than I expected - went from learning what the clutch and throttle is on the bike to practicing weaving around cones, taking a quick turn, upshifting and then swerving past an ‘obstacle’ in the road. Great class overall!"
― Zohaib Khan

― Boris Boukhonine
