When you turn the key in the ignition of a motorcycle, the engine that rumbles to life below you has the power of a hundred horses. That’s a lot of force to handle, which is why the teachers at Motorcycle University take their training so seriously. They aim to create safe, responsible riders, starting with extensive basics classes taught on their closed, off-road practice range. They cover even the simplest steps of riding a motorcycle– from switching it on to basic turns – during three-hour classes, providing plenty of opportunity for students to hone their skills in the saddle of the school’s own bikes. They also know that some students require more practice than a single class allows, so they welcome those students back again to repeat the same course at no charge, based on the instructor's recommendation.
