- $150 for the Rider’s Edge new rider motorcycle course for one (a $300 value)
- $300 for the Rider’s Edge new rider motorcycle course for two (a $600 value)
The Rider’s Edge course is geared towards students with no previous riding experience. Instructors teach foundational skills in the classroom before moving their charges outside to ride on a controlled course. Here, pupils are provided with a motorcycle, and lessons on skills such as braking, turning, controlling skids, and surmounting obstacles.
The class is held over four days, which totals 25 hours of instruction, and earns each student a completion card from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Everyone will need a valid driver’s license, helmet, long sleeve shirt, and jeans, chaps, or leather pants to attend class. Students should also bring over-the-ankle footwear, full-fingered gloves, and eyewear. Click here for a schedule of upcoming classes.
Jerry Stubbs was born to sell. He started out with bread, then moved on to lawnmowers, before settling on motorcycles. His love of bikes eventually culminated in Stubbs Harley-Davidson, a venture that began in 1965 and is now the oldest dealer in the Houston area. Jerry has since passed on, but the Stubbs sales staff honors his credo of taking care of the customer. They pride themselves on making sure no one waits more than 20 seconds before being greeted by a sales member.
Overseeing the chromed-out cache of new and used Harley-Davidsons, general manager Colin Lee often helps match first-time riders with their ideal bike. Additionally, the shop’s service department assists in identifying torque, power, and riding problems, while also souping up bikes with customized add-ons such as audio systems, paint jobs, and Honus Wagner rookie cards to shove in the spokes.
