About Bay Riders Group
As bikers themselves, the instructors at Bay Riders Group know there are innumerable reasons to ride a motorcycle—saving gas, skirting traffic jams, parking easily, looking cool. But they also know that there are risks involved with riding, which is why they're passionate about teaching motorcycle buffs how to ride responsibly and avoid the road's most common dangers. The team strives to makes sure that, from the close of their very first lesson, students are able to actually ride a motorcycle, complete with braking and shifting gears. As students progress, they gain the skills required of riding on the street, including navigating treacherous turns and heavy traffic. The school even provides beginners with a training bike—a 250cc Honda Nighthawk that they have dubbed “Nancy.” Bay Riders Group also supplies helmets and gloves, however riders will have to bring their own flaming stunt ramps.
