Canadian Motorcycle Association Presents
From Eric, April 2012:
"I found the course to be absolutely incredible and wanted to make sure that all the instructors get the proper credit, they are John Mark Chris Keith and of course Cassandra they were all awesome and so helpful and encouraging
thank you so much I will definitely encourage everyone I know that wants to ride to take your course."
From Rick, April 2012:
"I just finished the rainy extremely cold M2 exit course for the full M licence. I would just like to say a big thank you to Kevin and James, they are a credit to the association. Kevin and James are professional and knowledgeable instructors and fun to be around, a great weekend."
From Claudia, May 2012:
"Your crew was fantastic. Your senior instructor Bryan is truly, god's gift to safe biking. He explained well and put all of us at ease. Nearly half of my class was women including several who had never sat a bike before. You had a female instructor Danielle...She is firey, and enthusiastic about everything and everyone. She's cheerful and confident when students needed it most...she encouraged us and supported us and in all honesty, made the entire weekend worth every penny. This past weekend I took my first highway trip with all the confidence in the world.
What I thought was a course to help me pass my M2 test, turned into a course to help me save my life."
From Walt, October 2012:
"Just finished my M2 course with CMA, my instructors Brian LeBlanc, Lisa, Tom and Chris were the best and made our class fun, but very informative. I learned so much that will perhaps someday save my life! Thank you very much for an excellent course, I would recommend this to everyone."
From Joe, May 2013:
"Just finished my Gearing Up course May 17-19. Your people were amazing made the course a lot of fun, for beginners. And myself on & off for almost 50 yrs. This should be mandatory for anyone who want to ride. I have read about your course in motorcycle magazines, stating you are the best. With your instructors I had the pleasure to meet, they are the best."
