Give someone the gift of motorcycle training

It’s no secret that excellent motorcycle training is expensive.  Studies have shown that 92% of all motorcyclists are taught to ride by friends or family.  In addition, the majority of riders feel that it’s a waste of money to learn how to ride off-road.  There are some riders who appreciate the value of a class, but cannot afford to do so.  That’s where this GoFundMe campaign comes in.  We want to encourage riders who have the desire to learn proper technique, but who can’t afford training.  If you donate, you are helping those who are riding the trails with you.
