I am new to street riding on anything 50cc or bigger. I can’t imagine a world in which I attempt to operate a true motorcycle on the street without this course. The classroom and range (riding) instructors were excellent. The class was set up in such a way that the important lessons and skills were clearly communicated, demonstrated, and coached
