I believe that the learning environment should be fun. While safety is always the primary concern, I believe that the more fun my students are having, the more relaxed and open they are to the motorcycling experience. I try to remember the first time I took this course. The high mixed feelings of nervousness combined with excitement about riding don't make for a very conducive learning experience. That's why I try to calm my students down with humor, thereby creating an atmosphere where they can learn about the truly fantastic world of motorcycling and all that it holds.

"God did not intend for us to arrive in Heaven in a pristine body. He expects us to come sliding in, cigar in one hand, tequila (Patron) in the other, shouting Wow! What a Ride!"
