Ryan grew up in the southeast and started his riding experience on a Honda XL80 in the woods behind his house. Like many young men, he bought his first real bike the moment he left home and the watchful eye of his parents. Aboard a Yamaha R6, he quickly decided to take his riding to the next level. He participated in WERA road racing for two seasons. Since then, he has followed his passion for motorcycling by taking every opportunity he could to learn more about riding and to accumulate new experiences. Ryan has crossed the States twice, once on the dirt (Trans America Trail) as well as spending two cold and rainy weeks crisscrossing Ireland on a BMW twin. Ryan lives in the North Georgia mountains with his wife Allison (pictured) and daughter Kinsley where they house a small arsenal of 2-wheeled weapons that can handle a variety of riding. But both admit to having a passion for dual sport/adventure riding. When not riding motorcycles, he follows his other passion: soccer. Ryan has played, coached and refereed soccer since he was knee-high to a Ninja. In those times when he is wearing neither a helmet or shin guards, you’ll find Ryan in the high school classroom teaching science, chemistry and physics. That experience as an educator really comes in handy as a Stayin’ Safe coach.
In addition to our core team of lead instructors, we also have a growing list of assistant instructors, each with essential qualifications and each personally trained by one or more of our experts.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
