Our latest reviews…

Had my class over the weekend and got great instructions from Lee, Ted, Noah and Patrick. The practical exercises and drills progressed nicely throughout the day, building on some foundations. Lee & Ted’s focus on safety and building good riding habits made me really feel that 1st gear isn’t in the market to just take your money and sign off on anyone’s MST/MSA. Noah and Patrick gave really good advice to the class to tidy up some skills during our drills all while maintaining the chill atmosphere/vibe. All of them are knowledgeable and passionate about the sport, just don’t ask them to do the math on how many years of experience they have combined. The range of available motorcycles was really great too as everyone in the class was able to try out many different styles of riding and really find what they’re looking for without committing to something blindly. I look forward to continuing on with the sessions afterwards to gain more confidence on the road in preparation for a road test and will recommend this school to anyone looking to get into riding.

I wasn’t sure if (as a 67 year old woman) I would be capable on a motorcyle and/or like operating one. Instructors Lee and Todd were very personable, clear, and supportive. The course work itself was well laid out as was the practical work. Starting slowly to make sure we understood the weight/balance of a motorcyle up to learning how to make a quick but practiced manoeuver to get out of potential trouble – all this has made me look forward to purchasing a bike and getting out on the road. Thank you guys!

1st Gear got me from having never even touched a motorcycle to passing my MST within a few hours of theory work and 1 weekend of riding. Patrick, Kiefer, and Lee all went out of their way to provide actual useful feedback for every exercise and genuinely want to see you improve. They show you lots of practical and useful skills learned for everyday situations in the real world and the ability to try out different bikes if you feel so inclined. Well worth the cost!! I would have no hesitation to recommend this school to anyone looking to enter the world of motorcycling!
