You’re Ready to Ride

You’re in the Right Place

People break into the biking world for many reasons: anticipating exciting adventures,  reveling in the freedom of open roads, embracing the camaraderie that exists between bikers,  and sporting the obvious “coolness factor” inherent in bikers top the list.

Whatever your reason, you’re in the right spot to embark on your own adventure.

Becoming a biker encompasses learning skills and understanding how and when to use them.

Our Motorcycle Safety Foundation trained coaches carry 160 years of combined riding experience. They’ve coached hundreds of bikers from very inexperienced and timid students to veteran riders.  Each coach has a burning desire to help you embark on your riding career proficiently.

    I am thinking of getting this course for my boyfriend for Christmas. if I do, would you be able to provide me with a gift certificate or something tangible I can give to him?

    • motorcycle

      Yes we are Pam. You can order one right on the site from the link on the home page or call me at 316-706-9722 and I’ll be happy to get you taken care of.

    I have a ninja 250 that has been lowered for me. May I use my bike for the class. I am worried I will not be able to touch the ground on another bike.

    Thank you for your question. The state of KS requires you to ride a training bike in class, however, we ride 125’s and 250’s. We’ve had many people who have a shorter inseam with the same question. The great news is we have smaller bikes to accommodate you. I’ll be happy to answer any further questions you may have either here or I can be reached at 706-9722.

      Hi Alex,
      Thanks for your question. The state of KS requires a valid drivers licence to take the motorcycle class. Please let e know how I can further assist you.

    I am off on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but the earliest I could be there on the Tuesday morning would be roughly 9:15 to 9:30 due to the fact I get off at 8 a.m. in Winfield ks. would I still be able to attend the class if I showed up late on the Tuesday morning. I am not able to take vacation until I have been at my job a year or otherwise it wouldn’t be an issue but I would like to be able to ride legally before then you know?

      Thanks so much for your question. We do our best to work with students. You must attend the entire class but we can likely work out a solution. Give me at call at 316-706-9722 and we can see how we can work it out.

    Do you offer weekday classes? Friday night through Saturday night is my Sabbath (religious day of worship) and will not be able to take the class during that time. is there any way I can take the classes any other days?


    • motorcycle

      Thank you for your question Ramon. Yes we off er a weekday class at least once per month. You can see the schedule on the scheule page on the website.

    So i’m a big guy. I stand 6’4″ and tip the scale at a very big 300lbs. Do you think that riding a Rebel 250 for the MSF is going to be an issue?

    • motorcycle

      Hi Bobby, thanks for your question. We use training bikes for that reason. Although, most people do just fine, an occasional spill occurs. You are not liable for bike damage. We hope to see you in class soon.

  6. motorcycle

    Thanks for your question. It’s actually a great idea to take the class before you purchase a bike. We supply the bikes. The only things students need are full finger glove, over the ankle boots, and eye protection (eye glasses, sun glasses, or goggles). We have helmets available for students to borrow for the class if they don’t have their own. We look forward to seeing you in class.
