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".
