Ride a Motorcycle - Advice & In Depth Guides
No online instruction will ever replace what you will learn from hands-on experience. However, you can’t always just hop on a bike and ride. We work with experienced riders and motorcycle riding instructors to create content for beginners and those new to motorcycling. Our goal is to help people make good decisions by being a source that you can trust. We strongly recommend that all new riders take motorcycle riding classes. The skills you will develop in said class will empower the rest of your riding, help you gain confidence, and teach you fundamental techniques that will keep you safe on the road.

Years Riding: 13 Years
Experience: Former riding instructor at SAIT Motorcycle Operation & Safety classes and Calgary Safety Council
I am an avid rider and love being able to introduce others to my passion. I have worked as an instructor for the SAIT Motorcycle Operation & Safety classes for the past four years (I was an instructor with the Calgary Safety Council for five years prior to that). Through this course, I have helped dozens of new riders learn how to safely ride.
My hope is to help new riders from all over the world build the essential skills and competencies needed to safely ride a motorcycle. Enjoy the content we have created, and as always, make sure you’re riding safely!
I Ride: 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2SX SE, 2019 KTM 790 Adventure
Years Riding: 20+ Years
Experience: Heavy Duty Mechanic and genuine motorcycle nut
By day, I’m a heavy-duty mechanic working on monster machines in Alberta’s oil patch. By night, I’m a budding motorcycle journalist.
I wasn’t actually born on a motorcycle, but you probably wouldn’t know that. I’ve spent most of my life riding and obsessing over these machines, and over the years I’ve had some really memorable experiences while riding a motorcycle.
I’ve ridden a motorcycle up the Dempster Highway to Tuktoyaktuk, reviewed Ducati’s in the French Riviera, and sampled everything from 200 horsepower land rockets to the most exciting entry-level bikes on the market.
