Two companies, both about the same price for the beginner package. Company A's package: -(4) 1 on 1 closed course 1-hour riding lessons -Guided riding in light traffic -They will privde a bike and chase car for DMV road test (one of the things that makes road tests such a hassle) Company B's package: -18 hours of mixed classroom and closed course/on-bike training -If you pass the class, waiver for the DMV road test (automatically get your license) I emailed Company A and asked them to tell me why I'd want to use them instead of what appears to be the much more thorough training provided by Company B, and the reply was that they offer 1 on 1 lessons, and riding in traffic. They got a little contradictory, said the Company B test with the DMV waiver was harder than the DMV road test that they'll take me to, but that their lessons are better. Then he got all bent and said "if you just want classroom training to commit recreational suicide and no real-world experience, then please don't bother learning to ride a motorcycle." So anyway, I think Company B would teach me better, but what are some of your more experienced riders thoughts?
