FROM PAST STUDENTS
Hi, I wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed taking the BRC with you as my instructor. Your enthusiasm and expertise made me comfortable, even though I had never gotten on a motorcycle before. I'm excited about possibly getting a bike, if eventually it is possible financially.. Galen P.
My husband and I think you are a great teacher, understanding and awesome, and thanks to the way you taught him some of the maneuvers y'all taught him has gotten him outta a couple tricky situations. Amanda M.
Thank y'all so much for being awesome and we definitely recommend y'all to anyone seeking a class
I just wanted to thank you and Walter for introducing me to motorcycle riding...I love it!. v/r Richard J.
I thought that being required to take this course was just another way to get my money, but recently the skills I learned by taking the Basic Riders Course saved my life. Class is well worth the cost. Robert
The guy is passionate about what he does. Ask him anything about motorcycles and he will help you out. I really enjoyed the class. Artem
This is a great group of coaches to learn from! I was a first time rider with no driving experience and a lot of anxiety. Thanks to their patience and skill building exercises I now have my motorcycle endorsement. I am looking forward to taking an advanced skills class to further my abilities. Thank you to all of the Ride2wheels coaches. Audrey
