Riding Academy Coach

In my opinion as an instructor there is no better feeling than to take a student outside of there comfort zone and push them to a high level, explain to them why you did it the way you did it and why, and to see the look of "ah ha" on there face as it CLICKS, and they realize they are on a new journey toward broadening there development..Feels good to lead into a forward direction.

I started riding mini-bikes in the second grade. I love everything Harley; the grit, the steel, the people… an American icon!

Frank

Frank

Riding Academy Coach

After enjoying the sport of motorcycling for many years, I wanted to give back to the motorcycle community. Working with the Harley Davidson Riding Academy is an excellent opportunity for me to help new riders enjoy the sport I love. The adrenaline rush from the success of my students at the end never gets old!

Riding Academy Coach

My light bulb moment was after having spent diligent time with my son teaching him what I thought would make him a safe and effective motorcyclist at his ripe age of 16. I accompanied him to his BRC at Lakeland and realized my strength communicating with him. An instructor asked him where he learned his skills and I was approached by that instructor who suggested I look into being an instructor
Now that I have become part of this team. I relate to the students as if they were one of my kids and try to communicate with them to further their ability to ride safe. My reward is all the relationships I have kept in touch with after the courses and all the stories they share with me.

I enjoy teaching the Riding Academy classes because they provide a good introduction to the sport of motorcycling. They explain how dealership departments work and what value they add. I also enjoy teaching the RA classes because they have enough time for the students to get maximum value from the entire experience.

Riding Academy Coach

I get tremendous joy when riding my bike.
I've learned to master my skills from the best which helped me erase the fear of taking corners by using the proper technique. Now it's my turn to spread the invaluable knowledge, hoping that my students will have as much fun as I do when riding by getting the best training I can provide. Gear on and be safe!

Better training equals better rider. Also I got best job ever. I get paid to ride a Harley Davidson. Once again, best job ever. (At least for this summer. Then I become old and fat ex guy with best job ever)

I’ve been riding motorcycles since I was a teenager, but I’ve only been riding “trained” since 2000 when my wife Teri convinced me to take the class with her.
I finally learned the proper way to ride “smart” and got of all those bad habits out of the way. I enjoyed the class so much, I made the decision to become an instructor. It is truly an honor to help others learn how to ride and enjoy the exhilaration that only a motorcyclist can know.

"I have loved riding since I was a kid. I would love to share that with anyone who has the desire to ride!"

Rob

Riding Academy Coach

The reason I got into teaching at the Riding Academy is because I wanted to give back. I remember going through the course to get my endorsement, and how it felt like such an achievement. I decided I wanted to help other new riders have the same experience.

Russ

Russ

Riding Academy Coach

With 50+ years of riding many picturesque roads all over North America, it’s gratifying to watch a non rider become a safe motorcycle rider with the Harley Davidson Riding Academy. I enjoy being part the beginning of their realization of the adventure of traveling this great country on a motorcycle

Sanford

Sanford

Riding Academy Coach

I have been riding over 30 years. I generally ride cross country each year averaging 8-10K miles a season. My goal as an instructor is to "light the enthusiasm" to ride for each new biker. The joy of "wind therapy" can only be experienced not explained.

Sherry

Sherry

Riding Academy Coach

In 1992 women were very much a minority operating a MC. I took at that time an MSF course, was nervous, passed with flying colors and now I am honored to teach what I know to all of you.

Teri

Teri

Riding Academy Coach

After taking the class in 2000, and never having rode prior, I never looked back. My husband and I have traveled all over the country on our bikes. (No trailers!) We’ve attended many HOG rallies, met some awesome people and had great experiences.

The Riding Academy gives the novice rider the best chance for success. More time in the saddle equals reinforcement of the lessons being learned. Love to see the "light bulb" go off for the those with a desire to ride.
