Want to learn to ride … then learn from the BEST
Want to learn to ride?…. Then do yourself a favor and go with the BEST!!
I had a bad experience many years ago when a “friend” put me on a bike in a back alley and said, “here’s the clutch, gas, break and gear shifter. Now go!” It ended with me cat-walking the bike into a fence. That was my only motorcycle driving experience.
Trevor has put together an incredibly valuable experience for anyone; regardless of whether you have never been on a motorcycle to those wanting to refresh or enhance their skills. I’ve been a passenger for many years, but wanted to ride my own bike. When I committed to learn properly, I checked out lots of schools and chose “Too Cool” because of their experience and I liked the emphasis on safe riding and their healthy respect for the bike and the sport.
While there is a very scheduled, progressive and defined curriculum, you are taught and encouraged in the way you need. The instructors are patient, acting as teacher, coach and occasionally cheerleader. Trevor, Rene, Jay and Brent will teach you things that most other schools don’t touch on; but they have expectations of you as well. Be on time, pay attention, have fun, and most of all TRUST AND JUST DO WHAT THEY SAY. They will not let you fail if you come prepared to learn. They won’t tolerate anyone goofing around or showing off and jeopardizing their own or anyone else’s safety.
Too Cool is super organized. There are lots of bikes available in a variety of sizes and styles and all are great working order. All helmets, boots, and gloves are quality, organized and sanitized DAILY. Every minute of your day is spent learning, and the drills runs like clockwork. They make learning fun, and while I was exhausted at the end of each day I was also so exhilarated because my skills and confidence were growing exponentially. I chose the Gold course and the end of the week culminated in an exciting 3 hour road ride in and around Calgary. We were on residential streets, main roadways, freeways and highways, going from 5km/hr to 100km/hr. Our class consisted of 12 students ranging in age from 16 to 60 with a ratio of 1:4 instructors to students. Students bond, and are incredibly supportive of each other, friendships are forged.
I had purchased a bike before I went to the class and was nervous about the transition because it is a big powerful bike. The guys knew this and gently pushed me, all the while giving me the skills and confidence to know exactly what to do when it came to safely move up from 250cc to 1130cc. After class was completed I got on my own bike in a large open parking lot and I put my training to work. I was able to safely and easily run through the drills I had been taught in class. It made the transition easy and I was confident with my ability to handle the much bigger bike.
Take a look at the class photos and check out the smiles. You can’t fake that kind of “Happy”
Worth every minute and every cent!!
Way “TOO COOL”
