This fun, half-day course focuses on learning the fundamental and technical skills needed to operate your off-road bike in a safe and smart manner. It’s also a great class to learn how to operate ANY type of motorcycle.
Designed for the beginning rider, you’ll practice proper application of a motorcycle’s controls, and develop important mental skills for assessing the riding environment.
A Public Class costs $200. We supply the motorcycle, the riding gear, and the fun! To check class schedules and/or to register, CLICK HERE.
Private and Family classes are also offered. See Frequently Asked Questions (below) for more details.
