If you’re are thinking about reaching out and grasping the joy of motorcycle riding, I’d consider this class a necessity. Our rider coach, Bo, was there every second of both days with instruction, guidance, and personalized riding tips, given in the most professional and friendly manner. I left this class after two days of training, with my license, a smile, and a few new friends. Most importantly though, are the skills, and knowledge instilled in me that it takes to be safe, courteous, and respectful on the dangerous roadways we ride. Thanks again Bo.

Hayley Stroop

I learned so much in only two days… my confidence increased through each exercise and I walked away happy with my M2 endorsement. Wednesday & Thursday classes worked perfectly with my work schedule; I recommend anyone who wants to begin riding to start here! Thanks Doug.

David Stuart

Riders in Motion actually teaches you to ride. I didn’t need it but they offer beginner’s class (if you’ve never ridden before or need to brush up on the basics) to beyond getting your license. They learn your name there. The only certification class I recommend in the Valley.

Rebecca Turner

Enjoyed it! Bo is a great instructor. He showed me after 10 years of not riding that I still could. He shows alot of guidance so you are confident to get your license.

Barbi Cole

Much fun, even in the rain. Bo, our Rider Coach, was very professional, knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient. And, gave helpful advice, when he saw a student having difficulty learning a particular skill. It was obvious he wants his students to succeed. Highly recommend taking the course through R.I.M. rather than any of the others in the area.
