Motorcycle Safety Course Testimony

My name is Steven Guthrie and I participated in the TPD Share the Road course on May 21st and am wanting to attend another course on June 4th if you have an opening in that class.  I found the course to be extremely valuable and would like a chance to improve my skills even further.

I have ridden almost every day since 2011 and felt I could deal with situations that came up. That thought I had was a lie.  While laying on my back on the asphalt of the parking lot while performing a simple 90 degree right turn from a stop I quickly realized and said to myself "Steven you have no idea how to ride".  By taking part in the exercises throughout the day by the end of the course I was able to run the figure 8's several times without hitting a cone once.  I am telling anyone that rides they need to take this course.

Please feel free to share this email with any of your motor officers to let them know "they do make a difference".
