"5 stars for the program! I ve learned a lot just by attending this short 2 day course. Both Chris and Isaac are great instructors. They bring lots of real life experience and humor when they teach. They make the classes fun both inside the class room and on the range. Highly recommend them!!"

"Had a great time learning how to ride. Instructors were patient both in the classroom and on the range, even for a total beginner like myself. Went from never having been on a motorbike before to being able to have a bit of confidence while riding, not to mention lots of fun!"

If your goal is to know how to ride and be safe doing it, you've come to the right place. Prepare to feel confident on the open highway after completion; this course is the real deal."
