INSTRUCTOR SPOTLIGHT

Instructor Spotlight Laure E. Sanders

Laurie E. Sanders

I have been helping people learn to ride for 15 years. Watching students gain confidence and fulfill their dream of riding a motorcycle makes this job fun. My ride is a BMW R1100R. I enjoy traveling, especially on the motorcycle and have ridden all over the western United States.

He has five motorcycles, but his favorite is the Honda Goldwing. He has traveled across the country several times on his Goldwing, and even has a little pop-up tent trailer that he tows behind his motorcycle for camping.

Instructor Spotlight Seena Drapala

I have been riding since I was 12 years old. I wish there had been a Basic Rider Course (BRC) around when I started riding. I enjoy coaching people, especially, those who have never been on a motorcycle before, to learn to ride. It is also gratifying when experienced riders say they learned lots from any of the courses I teach. The BRC2 course is great because you get to ride your own bike. It is a good course to take in the spring to freshen up your skills as the riding season ramps up again. The Advance Rider Course (ARC) has some really cool riding techniques to learn on your own bike. This course was developed from the sport racer techniques and develops more advanced riding skills.
