Neal Thompson has had a fond love for anything with wheels since a very early age, riding on his Dad’s gas tank at the early age of three. Neal is extremely passionate about motorcycles of all types and has been riding for over 10 years. Moonlighting early on as the motorcycle mechanic for MRC, as much as this gear head loves to turn wrenches, he wanted to share his knowledge about motorcycles with others as a Coach. In addition to motorcycles, he holds his family, son, and nephew very near and dear to his heart and hopes to inspire others to find their passion for riding as well.

This course offers over 15 hours of classroom and riding instruction based on the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) curriculum.

This course is specifically designed for the novice rider and beginner rider. Students learn about components and controls of a motorcycle, riding gear and preparing to for the ride. The risk of riding and managing that risk are studied in depth better preparing the student for "real life" riding. Strategies are investigated that will prepare each student for riding on the street in traffic. Whether you want to learn to ride for pleasure or basic low-cost transportation or both, this course is perfect for you.

Many students are returning riders. They rode a motorcycle in their youth, but haven't ridden in years. This is a perfect reintroduction to riding. Experienced riders can break bad habits and gain new skills.

Graduating students receive an Motorcycle Safety Foundation completion certificate and a Virginia Class "M2" endorsement (motorcycle license).

We offer both weekday and weekend classes throughout the year. Class sizes are typically 10 - 12 students facilitated by two professional RiderCoaches.
