"Fantastic beginner's class which taught me how to ride and do it safely. Within two days of purchasing my first motorcycle I used the fundamentals taught to avoid an accident when a car made an illegal U-turn directly in front of me. Steve and Jeff are superb instructors and I cannot say enough good things about them and the class. Take some water and light snacks with you."

"Totally worth every penny and every minute! Justin & Alison were awesome, patient instructors with clear passion for riding and safety. I do not doubt that the sound foundation of safe riding and good judgement this class established in my riding habits will one day save me - life and limb."

"They know their stuff. I've been riding 3 years, but there were a few newbies in my class (3 females, 1 male). They all passed! No favoritism, they all earned it and that was due to 2days of studying and training. A couple of them never controlled a motorcycle at all. They rode the courses from instructions of instructors."

"You will drive or ride away with better way of riding on the streets. I for one learned new skills and also a different way of thinking other then what was learned away from the class. A must if your a rider. Vance and Adrian was the best."

"Prior to the class, my only motorcycle experience was a few hours on a 125 in the dirt, then bought a 650 (the deal on the bike was too hard to pass up) but felt overwhelmed on it even just going down the street...after the class, it's just feels like the perfect bike for me. The class made all of the difference in the world for me (at least for street riding)"

"Absolutely LOVED this course!! Definitely recommend if you are interested in riding a motorcycle. Jessie and Jeff were awesome instructors. They were patient, straight to the point, and took time for everyone’s questions. Thanks to them, I feel much more confident on my motorcycle. I am looking to take the intermediate and advanced courses as well. Thanks guys!!"

"Honestly, I was scare to the bone; had trouble with whiskey throttle. However, Bob & Jessie were a great help in every aspect throughout the whole 3 days. I learn a lot, I appreciate the help they gave and guidance was amazing. I recommend this course, it'll help you learn the basics and with Bob and Jessie, they will teach you to total control the bike."
