Learn To Ride




Welcome to R.I.D.E. motorcycle training by Surdyke Motorsports.

This 2 day class is aimed at beginning or re-entry riders of all ages. A minimum of five hours classroom instruction prepares the student for at least ten hours of practical riding in a controlled, off street environment. With our certified closed course and MSF training coaches, we'll have you riding in just a few short days. Plus, passing the class will justify as the riding portion of your motorcycle safety test in Missouri, and could help lower costs on insurance premiums.

For training, Surdyke Motorsports will provide one of these motorcycle models to ride:

  • Yamaha XT250
  • Yamaha TW200
  • Yamaha R3
  • V-Star 250

All students will be required to have the following items to participate in the R.I.D.E. course:

  • Over the ankle boots
  • Full-finger gloves
  • 3/4 or full-face DOT approved helmet
  • Eyewear (if not using a face shield)
  • Long sleeve shirt & jeans (w/o holes and rips)

We know you want to ride -- so let us help you do it! Click on a course date to register online NOW.
