I cannot begin to say how much fun this was... and as a road racer, being able to control a bike in less-than-optimal conditions is a huge plus! Brian has the perfect blend of instruction, track time, enthusiasm and encouragement to make a day out there worth it for anyone who wants to ride a motorcycle well. The skills you will learn at Brian's may well save your life out on the street... and I'm thinking a few more trips up to Feel Like a Pro Dirt will have a real positive effect on my lap times when racing starts up next season! Thank you, Brian, for giving me one of the best weekends I've ever had on a bike! Awesome!!
Wow. YES do it. Yes you will learn! Yes you will have fun! Yes you will make friends! Yes you will be tired at the end! Yes it is a blast. I have been riding for 30 years. Brian and I used to race together in the 80's and I learned a bunch from him and his school this last weekend. He knows the right skills to teach and he is positive and energetic. He has a deep understanding of techniques that help all levels of riders. 5 stars without a doubt! Do it!
My 3 kids had a blast. We went to Feel Like A Pro Dirt with no experience and the kids left that day with a new confidence and appreciation for life. Brian's energy and motivation raised our kid's spirit and dirt and mud wore them out physically. Thank you for a wonderful day! We can not wait to go back.
Brian Bartlow and his crew(family/friends) put on an excellent program for all disciplines and skill levels of riders. I recently attended the FLAP Dirt Battle at the Ranch and the ages ranged from 8-70 and there was even a girls class with 8 racers! The environment is very welcoming, low stress and fun. Anyone who isn't a perfect rider, myself included, would benefit from attending this camp/school time and time again! For those of us with an extra competitive side, he also provides awards and giveaways to people that do exceptional! Do yourself a favor and attend Feel Like A Pro Dirt.
I really enjoyed being a guest instructor at Brian Bartlow's Feel Like A Pro Dirt Camp. Loved seeing the riders improve over the weekend, and I even did a little sliding myself! I highly recommend this school for anyone that wants to improve their riding.
Went to Brian's school at redwood acers to just learn and have some fun. By the end of the school I felt confednent to go race. It was amazing well worth the money and I'm still smiling from ear to ear a day later. There's gonna be two more school/races in the months to come in eureka CA. Get out there and check the school out,never know you may get hooked like me.
I recently attended a Ken Hill coaching day at the Ranch. As always Ken sent each student away a much better rider than when they arrived. Brian Bartlow and his family were amazing hosts, and are as down to earth GOOD people as you will ever meet. The facility is beautiful, and the added Coaching and encouragement from Brian is priceless. Each of us left with huge smile on our faces - I can't remember laughing so much. If you love to ride with people who love Motorcycles - Do yourself a favor - GO!!! you'll never regret it
I had heard a lot of great things about Brian Bartlow’s Feel Like A Pro from friends who had been there, so it had been high on my to-do list for a while now. When I heard that Ken Hill was doing a 2-day camp in conjunction with Brian this past weekend, I had to make it happen. What a blast the weekend was. Brian’s facility is first class in every respect - from the shop to the bikes and gear to the track to the coaching. When Brian wasn’t coaching, he was working hard on t...rack prep all weekend ensuring it remained in great condition for us. Dirt tracking little bikes on a small track is ideal for anyone who wants to be a better road racer, street rider, or off-road racer/rider. There is a reason that the best racers in the world train that way. More importantly, it is a hell of a lot of fun. I will definitely be back soon. If I lived a little closer, I’d be there every weekend.
Thanks so much Brian for the incredible start to 2016! This past weekend was my second time at Feel Like A Pro Dirt, and it was fantastic. Brian is a phenomenal teacher, and he fosters an atmosphere conducive to progress and learning at all skill levels. I have only been on a bike twice, and Brian has taught me everything from how to shift gears to how to corner a dirt bike. I loved how Brian helped me ease into the sport, and now that I am comfortable, has transitioned to challenging me to becoming a better rider. I highly recommend attending a training camp as well as a battle--the individualized attention and energy that Brian brings to the track is unmatchable. Thank you Feel Like A Pro Dirt and I cannot wait to be back!
My husband and I just did an afternoon lesson with Brian and not only was it fun, I gained even more confidence for street riding. Brian is so passionate and excited about motorcycles in general and just as eager to make sure you become an even better rider. In addition to the confidence I definitely picked up some skills and got more comfortable going fast. I started to really understand the track and and my own riding, so I could improve it with Brian’s coaching. I highly recommend this to anyone who rides period. Also bonus did my first donut
I've been to a training day which was informative and a great opportunity to ride , train, and learn from Brian who has a wealth of race experience and knowledge. I've also rented a couple bikes from feel like a pro dirt so my girlfriend and I could go do some local trail riding together, this was a total blast! I look forward to more in the future and recommend you guys check it out.
