    Just completed the Basic class this past weekend! Let me say I truly appreciate Thunder Roads making me aware of this class, I have about 1000 miles logged in on bike riding so I’m still a newbie in most regards and this class truly showed me some things I didn’t know.

    The best part of the class was the great instructors and how they explained the different elements and skills needed to ride. My favorite part was when they described the “friction zone” and clutch control. Obviously, I already knew how to operate the clutch but man I really wish someone would have described it the way they did when I first started riding!

    The best part is you get to take your exam on a 250 Dirtbike. Little easier to manage than the top-heavy sporster I currently own. Thanks again Thunder Roads!
