"As an Olympic athlete, I've had thousands of hours of coaching from some of the most respected coaches in the world, and I have to say Ken is among the best coaches I've ever worked with."
"I just returned from an amazing moto-journey through Western New England. Deep gratitude to Ken Condon for being my guide through this beautiful part of North America and for empowering me to be a more mindful rider." H.Y.
"I was very impressed with the whole program. Ken is an outstanding instructor and a pleasure to ride with." J.C.
"I wanted to thank you for the excellent coaching you gave me on Thursday. I think you really helped me." T.Z.
"Spending a day (or half a day even) with Ken for a rider at any level will be so valuable. If it’s crossed your mind, do it. You’ll be so glad you did." K.L.
"This master class has had a profound effect on my riding since that day. I always try, as Ken put it, “to look for opportunities to interact with your motorcycle,” and not be a passive driver. It's even changed the way I drive my car- hazards are hazards, after all, and being able to recognize clues about the lay of the road and intentions of other drivers is a valuable skill." S.B.
