Yes! I'm so glad that this course is back!
I learned so much from the instructors there that I recommended it to everyone I know who is interested in riding.
It gave me a tonne of confidence and knowledge in riding that I wouldn't have gotten anywhere else.

The riding season seems to be off to a very slow start this year, but it will be here before we know it. Sign up for your course today. First one runs in less than three weeks!

Unfortunately, all the free courses have been awarded. We are, however, currently setting up a partnership with GTAM to offer members a discount for our course. This will be in place in the immediate future. Check back on the forum over this next week.

At the present time due to logistics of reinventing ourselves all we offer is the M1 Exit course. Feedback from other students in the same situation as yourself who have re-taken the M1 Exit course have found it beneficial to reinforce all their riding skills.

With the weather starting to warm up we are all itching to get out on our motorcycles, but there are a few things to keep in mind to make it a safe and enjoyable start to another riding season. At this time of year it is important to be extra cautious and take the following into consideration before heading out.

• Other motorists have forgotten we exit so they won’t be aware of us. Be aware of them
• There hasn’t been enough rain yet to wash the roads clean. Keep an eye out for sand piles. Also, many roads are in poor shape due to the unusually harsh winter we’ve experienced.
• And last, but not least, re-familiarize yourself with your bike. It’s both a physical and mental activity and it takes a little while for the muscle memory to get back up to speed. We all get rusty over the winter.

Safe riding!

The fleet is ready for our first course this coming weekend. Looks like the weather will be cooperating as well.

I thought Sheridan wasn't offering courses anymore for M1 Exit to M2?

We are not longer affiliated with Sheridan College. They shut down their con ed program last year. The former Sheridan instructors banded together, bought all of the assets and opened their own rider training school. Same great people. Same great course. Different location. (although our classroom portion is still taking place at Sheridan College)

You can check out our website at http://www.mtohp.com/

Also, GTAM members qualify for a discounted course if you book through them: http://www.gtamotorcycle.com/vbforum/showthread.php?180940-GTAM-has-teamed-up-with-MTOhp-for-the-2014-Season-Save-25-00
