When I was 16 years old I sneaked out with my older brother's motorcycle (an awesome Puma 90c.c. two stroke, squeaky, noisy and smelly) and my love affair with motorcycles started. I did learn how to ride motorcycles the hard way, back then was the only way, trial and error. Even at the end of the 80's when I started riding Dirt the only way to learn was to try and...err
I bought my first BMW R5 - 500cc when I was 17 years of age (against the will of my parents of course)... and I have been riding since then.
Participated in several races in Argentina and also made adventure trips in South and North America, spent several thousand of miles in every imaginable situation, snow, dirt, mud, cold, hot, from the Andes to the Rocky Mountains.
Worked as a coach for the Motorcycle Safety Foundation teaching the Dirt Rider Course (now retired).
As newcomers and come-backs alike are in need of professional safety instruction in motorcycle riding, I started this low stress class, in which I ride with the students, evaluating his riding technique and then coaching them in a relaxed environment in how to improve their riding style and safety.
This friendly and relaxed private class is the best way to either learn (or re-learn) the demanding skills to become a safe and seasoned rider.
In the class I cover the void between the Basic training of the M.R.E. and the Racing Schools, with techniques and tips geared to improve the performance and safety of you, the average person.
The best way to learn? Take a motorcycle rider course. Studies have shown that 92% of accident involved riders are either self taught or taught by friends.. Your friends are a garden of misinformation. Your instructors are a wealth of real knowledge.
Remember, always ride the road (at your own pace), not your friends!
