REAL REVIEWS FROM KANSAS CITY MOTORCYCLE RIDERS
“My wife commented to me that the course was one of the hardest things she has ever undertaken, but also was one of the most satisfying experiences she has ever had. The fact that she could achieve this level of confidence after just two days on the riding range is a testament to the quality of your instruction program.”
“The curriculum was well-organized and the riding aspects well-paced. I felt more confident and prepared as a beginner rider, and I definitely recommend the class.”
“The lessons were clear, easy to understand, and at a pace that was right for everyone. Our coach personally asked each of us, as we advanced through the lessons, if we had clarity and had picked up the practices that would keep us safe on the road.”
