Meet Your Coach(es):

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 a 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.

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.

1.5 HRS OF PRE-COURSE COACHING before your Basic Rider Course.

This can be a stand-alone training opportunity. If you have no experience, Headstart is a valuable opportunity to familiarize yourself with motorcycle riding at a slower, less stressful pace than the larger class setting. We familiarize you with the motorcycle, friction zone, shifting and get you started on exercises! Our Headstart students claim this icebreaker did much to boost their confidence and get them off to a good solid start.

Headstart may be taken independent of the Basic RiderCourse and more than once. Not sure if Motorcycling is for you? Try HEADSTART and find out!

Many students sign up for Headstart just prior to their Basic RiderCourse. This gives them some advance preparation for the Basic RiderCourse a day or two, or even a week, before the full course.
