Thank you for tuning in to my podcast series. I love riding motorcycles. No other sport combines the same degree of physical, mental, and technical skills that’s required to operate a motorcycle. While I love riding, teaching allows me to share this passion by facilitating pathways for other riders to reach their fullest potential. I don’t train ‘racers’ or ‘street riders’ – I simply teach people how to be better motorcycle riders. This podcast series is about helping you become a better motorcycle rider, on and off the bike.
