A bit about our instructor


Randy has been a professional driver for over thirty years, and a riding instructor for thirteen. He started out teaching for Ziggy's driving Academy, and registered Cedar Motorcycle Riding School when Ziggy announced his retirement twelve years ago. Randy has traveled over 500,000 MILES since learning to ride as a teen, including some very long trips through the western states and Canada. He has the experience to help you deal with the many dangers you will encounter on the road.


  • When you're wrestling bears, wrestle the little ones first
  • I'm all about that clutch, 'bout that clutch, not the throttle...(to the tune of Meghan Trainor's "I'm all about that base"
  • You have your entire riding career to learn how to ride fast. Don't make it a short one!
  • You go where you look, so look where you want to go.
  • Look where you want to go, not where you think you're gonna go. Where do I want to be in ten seconds. THAT'S where your eyes are focused....ALWAYS!
  • If you think you're gonna hit the tree, looking at the tree just signs the contract.
  • Experience builds skill, which builds confidence.
  • There is no emergency worth crashing over.
  • Chase skill, not speed. Speed will come with skill. Speed without skills is dangerous.
  • Know safety, no pain. No safety, know pain.
  • Those cones really ARE pretty. Try not to stare.
  • If I sees it, I hits it!
  • OH LOOK!! A BIRD! ~^~
