Learn To Ride

Here at Peterson's Harley-Davidson in Miami, FL, We’re on a mission to make it easier than ever for you to get on a bike, build your skills and gain the confidence you need to ride. We launched Personal Coach Finder to connect you with skilled riding coaches and modern training programs that offer personalized instruction for private groups or individuals. Take a lesson 1-on-1 or with a small group of friends.

Book coaching sessions when it works for you, progress at your own pace and learn in a relaxed atmosphere. Whether you’re deciding if riding is for you, starting an epic riding journey or working toward motorcycling mastery, we are here to help you keep the adventure rolling. Check out our three unique programs to find the one that is right for you.

EXPERIENCE THE RIDE


BEST FOR 

Those who have never been on a motorcycle but are looking to try it out with a low pressure, low commitment experience.

Those who are looking for an experience to learn if riding is right for them and alleviate anxiety about getting on a motorcycle before taking formal rider training. 

HOW IT WORKS 

With assistance from our professional coaches you ride across a closed course with your feet up, no motorcycle license required!

Bring some friends or start your adventure solo. We’ll provide the bike, helmet, and gloves, you just come ready for fun wearing proper attire. See required gear for details. 

TIME COMMITMENT 

Approximately 90 minutes.

MASTER THE STREETS

HOW IT WORKS
