Chris Beard has served as a United States Marine for the past 20 years and has served in many diverse billets and assignments. Having the opportunity to train and instruct many different types of learners has given Chris the experience to capture the learning potential of a wide student base. Chris purchased his first motorcycle in 2006 and attended the MSF Basic Rider Course (BRC) two months later. Chris attributes many of his advanced skills to the fundamentals he learned while in the BRC, referring to those skills as the, "building blocks" of rider education. One year later, Chris completed the MSF Experienced Riders Course which further advanced his rider skill set. In April of 2010, Chris was selected to attend the MSF Rider Coach Prep Course and upon completion became a MSF Certified Rider Coach. Chris is an "all season" rider and enjoys the challenges associated with riding in cold and inclement weather. Chris believes riding year round has helped him become a more well-rounded instructor. Chris is starting his second year with MRC and takes great satisfaction from the opportunity to pass on his knowledge to new and experienced riders as well.

Chris also enjoys the outdoors and spending time camping and fishing with his son

Don Withrow is the Chief Operating Officer and a Partner for Motorcycle Riding Concepts. Don rode a motorcycle for the first time when he was just 12 years-old. He bought his first motorcycle (a 125cc Allstate) at age 14 with the money he earned mowing lawns and doing odd jobs. Don proudly served his country in the U.S. Army for 20 years spending six years in overseas assignments including two years in Vietnam. Working with riders, young and old, to develop and hone their riding skills is a passion for Don. He has been teaching students to ride motorcycles safely since 2001 including novice, intermediate and experienced riders. 

Don's passion outside of riding motorcycles and teaching students to ride motorcycles is Washington Redskins football. Although he has been mostly disappointed with the team since 1993, he's still an avid fan and goes to as many games as he can.

Richard Yuras started riding over 40 years ago on a Honda CS65 Sport. His passion for riding has grown and so has the size of his motorcycles. He enjoys riding year round on his 2012 Heritage Softail.  Richard enjoyed a 38 year career in the fire and rescue service.  He was member of an international urban search and rescue task force that deployed to Haiti and Japan to assist with earthquake rescue operations. The opportunity to introduce others to the fun and excitement of riding and riding safely is all part of his motorcycling passion.  Being a rider coach is a privilege and a responsibility that he takes very seriously.
