Joe Langenbacker:  Instructor/Owner of R.I.D.E.

25 years of law enforcement experience, over half of which was spent on Police Motors

Retired Captain/Motor Officer from Gulfport PD

Adjunct Instructor for the past 15 years with Northwestern University Center for Public Safety, which is a program that travels the United States training motor officers

"As a retired motor officer and a certified Police Motorcycle Instructor, I have had the opportunity to train many officers across the country.  I know that these skills work.  That is why the staff members of R.I.D.E. want to provide you with the skills necessary to survive dangerous encounters while enjoying motorcycle riding.  We are so dedicated to training the civilian rider that our policy is:  Once you complete any level of our training at R.I.D.E., we invite you back any and every weekend that motorcycles are available to come practice your skills.  We do this at no cost.  That's correct, we provide you with a motorcycle and you may practice FREE!"

Roger Gibson:  Instructor

A police officer of 20 years and a Police Motor Officer for the past 15 years

"I was fortunate enough to complete the Police Motorcycle course in 1994. Then in 1996, I completed the Northwestern University Center for Public Safety Police Motorcycle course and attained the status as Instructor. I have been teaching ever since and my belief is 'You teach people to ride a motorcycle the correct way and you DO NOT cut corners, regardless of the situation'. I have also been employed with R.I.D.E. Motor School since its beginning."

"We as instructors here at R.I.D.E. Motor School have a saying: 'You don't talk the talk, unless you can walk the walk'. With that saying, we are very sincere here at R.I.D.E. Motor School to make sure we teach our students the proper and safe way to ride motorcycles. The single most greatest thrill is the satisfaction of seeing a student complete the course and becoming a safe rider. I truly believe you will never find a better class of dedicated instructors than that of here at R.I.D.E. Motor School. So please get registered and come see what it's all about. Even if you are a veteran rider of a motorcycle, you too can still learn new and safer ways to have fun on your personal bike."

"PLEASE remember this last thing...if you ever think in your mind that you already know all you need to know about riding your motorcycle, then this may be the time for you to look at riding more on four wheels than two. Come see me at R.I.D.E. to see what we offer..."
