Motorcycle Training Class

So a guy I work with (middle-aged) has expressed an interest in getting into riding and was wondering if there were any classes available. I'm an even older fart who's been riding since the 70s, so have no idea what's available nowadays. Anyone out there has some guidance? Thanks guys.....

I really enjoyed the Auburn training setup (inside & outside) and the easy parking was an added bonus. I had it good though...6 people in my class.

My daughter took their class when she was 16. They seemed to put on a good program.

I take a class in Kirkland more often than once a year. Amazing how many bad habits you pick in between. Evergreen Motorcycle Training

These guys also put on a good school. When I went they were doing the class at Pacific Raceway. I learned a lot, which was good. I also got addicted to trackdays which was better. Check out Optimum Performance Rider Training as well.

Remember that Optimum is a track day organizer and does not do the required class and testing for a motorcycle endorsement.
