Provide your students with motorcycle classes and share your love of riding. Do you enjoy the freedom of riding, the wind in your hair, teaching others to enjoy the speed safely?
Whether you ride for pleasure, commute, or sport, share your skills and experience with others capitalizing on these mobile business ideas. Demonstrate the skill required to master riding techniques, safety requirements, and sporting maneuvers.
Put your interest in motorcycle riding classes designed to show others how to ride their bikes and get the most fun out of their rides. Depending on your level of experience, you can provide classes to beginners all the way to advance students (including racing and off-road sport riding).
In addition to motorcycle classes, provide classroom safety instruction, licensing requirements in your state, and helping your students with on-bike instruction. Work with your state and insurance companies to become a preferred provider to help your students obtain a motorcycle license and/or qualifying for insurance discounts.
Run this business from your home. If your classes get large enough, contract with a local recreation center or businesses to provide a location for the classroom and driving portions of the training.
