Who Are We?

We are East Texas' newest and most affordable provider of motorsports training, and the only one that offers the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Beginning Basic RiderCourse for both motorcycle and 3-wheeler riders.  You will also find that, due to excellent relationships with local dealerships and the riding community, we have shiny new machines for you to learn on, like Can-Am Rykers provided by Broadway Powersports in Longview and Honda Groms and Rebels from H&W Powersports in Palestine!  If you like what you're riding, you're going to have a better learning experience - and we think you'll love these machines! Our Rider Coaches and their families love to ride and, whether you're a beginner or have years of experience, they are highly motivated to help riders learn skills for a lifetime of safe, enjoyable riding.
