Hello, my name is Jim Cook; nick name Busa-Bo.

I have been riding since 1965 and have been teaching since 1993. I take great pleasure in teaching people to ride safely and enjoy the sport. I have had over 8,000 students. Motorcycling can be a thrilling and challenging experience. The safe operation of a motorcycle requires practiced skill, knowledge, and a respectful understanding of the limitations imposed by the operator, the machine, and the environment.

My goal is to save lives and prevent as many accidents as I can. Please come join me!
