Don Withrow is the Chief Operating Officer and Co-Owner of 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.

Stan started riding while he was in the Navy in 1975. Rode for about 10 years then took a long break. In 2015 he started riding again and enjoys getting out on 2 wheels as often as possible all year long. Stan is enthusiastic about teaching others in the skills and strategies of safely riding in the D.C. area. Stan is an active member and former officer in the Northern Virginia Christian Riders, a chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association. He also spends weekends in the summer supporting the racing community as part of the Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Club (MARRC). He is a Corner Worker helping to keep the motorcycle races moving safely.

Stan has other hobbies to include 30 years as a Sound Designer in some of the Community Theaters of the area, and is the technical lead (sound, lights and, recently added, broadcast video) at his church in Burke. He also is working as a statistician for the Burgundy & Gold (formerly the Redskins) and has done that for the last 20 years.
