About Ride Arizona MTC
Ride Arizona MTC is the prime Southern Arizona motorcycle rider training facility. We have your motorcycle safety course designed so you can get your motorcycle license and increase your skills. Our riders have been recommended to us for training since 2009.
We strive to have a positive learning, training, and working environment for all clients and employees. We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and integrity and have the opportunity to learn a new skill.
Our primary goal is to improve, facilitate, and provide continuous learning for all levels of riders in a safe and controlled environment. We’ve trained more than 10,000 motorcyclists in the Casa Grande, Marana, Tucson, and Sierra Vista communities.
I took my very first motorcycle safety course in 1995, and I have not left the range. I became involved teaching others to ride because I, myself , almost failed the class when I first tried. My compassion for others, and complete understanding of what it means to someone to learn how to ride, helps me to work with students who didn’t think that they would really be able to ride—ride!
Riding a motorcycle was never on my bucket list of things todo. I got into motorcycle riding because I married one (my wife came with the bike at the time of purchase). Started off on a Honda 750, moved up to a 1300 VTX Honda. From there I was looking for a little more excitement so I started riding a 650 Suzuki V-Strom. Within 6 months of the V-Strom I was finally able to get my dream bike, the 2012 Kawasaki Concours 14.
I acquired my MSF certification from Chester’s Harley Davidson in Mesa in March 2009. I’ve been teaching motorcycle safety since April 2009. The joy you get from seeing a beginner rider complete the course and get certified is very rewarding. I am a vet of 12 years of the Air Force.
I started riding motorcycles in 1978. My first motorcycle was a 1975 Honda CB 360T. It was metallic blue and I rode it anytime that there was no snow on the ground. I went through the Motorcycle Safety Foundation Motorcycle Rider Course Instructor’s Preparation course in July of 1982. I have been teaching rider safety ever since.
