My 14 year old son and I spent the day with Gary learning the basics and some more advanced techniques. I highly recommend Motoventures - Gary is a true pro and an excellent instructor - we both had a great day and look forward to building on some of the fundamentals we were taught today. For excellent instruction and a... More

My husband and I are 50 somethings, and our son and daughter are teens. We spent the day at MV taking the First Dirt course. It was an amazing and fun experience! Only my husband had spent any time on a dirt bike, and that was wayyy back in the day. Our teacher was AJ, Gary's son. He was super... More

About two years ago I began dirt biking at the prompting of a friend in Michigan. He even built me a Honda 250 two stroke dirt bike. At 54 I was hesitant but tried it and loved it. In December we took a trip to Cape York in Australia and dirt biked for a few days. It was incredible but... More

My dad and I went to Motoventures for two days and we both learned a ton and had lot of fun. The first day it was snowing (!!) which apparently happens very rarely there. Despite the snow and cold, we had a great time and rode all day, the weather just made it more of an adventure. I am a... More

My wife, daughters and myself attended a one day program in November. It was a fantastic day! My wife (47) and daughters (15 and 17) had never been on a motorcycle or dirt bike before. Gary and Rob (one of the instructors) were fantastic. The instruction was in-depth, fun, safe and moved along at the pace of the group. Within... More

I've been to the California Superbike School and other great training programs, but MotoVentures was my favorite. Gary LaPlante and his guys are great teachers, and have first-class equipment, and have the perfect "riding ranch" for enhancing your skills, whatever level you're starting at. Professional roadracers have taken lessons from Gary, so don't get the idea that you already know... More
