I found this riding course on the forum several months ago, signed up and I can tell you Sgt. Brown and his staff did a great job. It was not the riding through the cones kind of course. We had a morning class and driving time, lunch and then back to classroom, then back on the road we went for our long ride, maybe hour and half. The road course of instruction was (2) riders to one instructor. The instructor took us out on a course around the county in real time/real life and real traffic driving. The instructor gave us pointers in the morning and then we got a chance to practice what we were taught. The day went by quick the instructors kept it light and none of this in your face type of class. I must said. a good time was had by all. If you get chance to take a opportunity of this course. It would be worth your time and did I say the price is right "FREE". We were told there is a 300+ waiting list. If you do contact Sgt. Brown you will find him very helpful and accomodating.
