2016 1st Gear Motorcycle School - RS special

I've been in contact with 1st Gear and they will be extending special group rate for REVscene member.

For February and March 2016, if you register with them in groups of 3 or more, and show either A) an RS sticker on lid/bike or B) RS lanyard, each person will be saving $100 off their regular $650 rate for the course.

unfortunately, cash only ( to reduce unnecessary payment processing costs)

you guys can coordinate and post up here if anyone interested, go from there.

My fiancÚ and I took our class with Lee last summer. I was going to go to PRS but couldn't find time to head all the way out to Surrey. I then googled and found Lee and the crew at 1st gear in Richmond. Great group of teachers. Very focused on defensive riding and riding safe. Totally vouch for them. They offer bikes to learn on and do your test with, road rides were very safe with Lionel. I'll be taking the advanced riding course with them this year.

I can also vouch for these guys. I lived in Surrey but ended up choosing 1st Gear over PRS, mostly due to the fact that 1st Gear had schedules that worked better for me. Learning to ride when you have a family to take care of is not easy.

But they totally exceeded my expectations of what a riding school should be. It was safe, it was challenging, and it was fun.

Another one here that can vouch. I lucked out and got them on a groupon purchase when they first started.. I've been extremely happy and have nothing bad to say about them. Plenty of bikes to choose from. Weekly classes, multiple instructors.

Everyone who has asked where abouts to take the course. I send them there.

Satisfaction Guaranteed!
