Coronavirus Update: 

We doing everything we can to ensure your safety and continue to provide services to our customers. We have made some operating adjustments to minimize student exposure and to meet the recent recommendations by the CDC, Governor and other local policies.

Classes will still continue as scheduled.

Fortunately, our class sizes are small to begin with. A normal class is a maximum of 12 students. While there is approximately 4 hours of classroom instruction, here are the changes we have made to mitigate the threat:

For Saturday, the classroom portion will be split. 6 students will be in the classroom, there will be 3 tables with only 2 students per table. The other 6 students will begin the on-motorcycle range exercises. At lunch, each group will switch. During the lunch break, the classroom will be sanitized. For Sunday, all students will be outside completing the remainder of the on-motorcycle exercises. There are enough motorcycles that each student will have their own assigned motorcycle for the duration of the class.

Additionally, all the facilities and equipment here are only used on the weekends. The CDC has stated that in best cast scenarios, the Coronavirus can survive on some surfaces for a maximum of three days. Our classroom, motorcycles, helmets and all associated equipment are unused for the 5 days during the week. Additionally, we clean and sanitize all equipment before and after use.

While we will continue provide helmets, with the previously mentioned safety precautions, it is encouraged to use your own helmet if you have one. All our helmets have been treated with disinfectant spray, however if you wish to give it another shot, please ask the instructors and they will provide you the spray.

The onsite bathrooms are stocked with soap and we will have hand sanitizer in the classroom.

As a final note, if you are sick or are having any symptoms, please be responsible.
