"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."

"Knowledgeable and experienced instructors provided clear guidance and instructions to new riders. Even some of the seasoned riders learned new concepts and skills."
― Art Garcia
"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
"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."

"Very thorough. Great for beginners. Basic fundamentals are instilled in you from the beginning to the end. Craig and Ken are terrific guys, great attitudes and very knowledgeable. Also their patience is what counts... I will be attending another slightly advanced class that they offer. Parking is great at both class and range locations."
― RR Leland
