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.
