Welcome to MotoVentures
… and the Wonderful World of Motorcycle Riding!
At MotoVentures Inc., we offer a wide range of motorcycle riding and training services for everyone-adults and kids, beginners to advanced riders, street riders, adventure bike and dual sport riders, motocross riders and trial bike riders.
We offer our training services every weekend, year around, and often on weekdays at our private, conveniently located, ideally-suited, 350-acre Southern California Rider Training Center in Anza, California just 30 minutes outside of the Temecula wine country.
In our virtual store, we sell many products related to our services, including the book How to Ride Off-Road Motorcycles written by MotoVentures founder and head instructor, Gary LaPlante.
We call our approach to training “Dirt First” because experts agree dirt bike riding is the best way to first learn to ride and it’s also the best way to take your current riding to the next level. We offer 3 Levels of training for dirt bikes:
Level 1 Dirt First training is for absolute beginners with no motorcycle riding experience.
Level 2 Dirt First training is for novices and intermediate riders including any performance-oriented motorcycle riders like street bike, dirt bike, off-road, dual sport and adventure bike riders.
Level 3 Dirt First training is for advanced riders like trials competitors, extreme off-road riders, and motocross racers.

“It was a blast! I learned that we could not only have fun riding dirt bikes but we could do it safely! Gary, your motorcycles, safety gear, riding course, refreshments and instruction were 1st class! You taught each one of us at our own level and always kept our interest and attention.” ~ Kelly Stephens - Huntington Beach, CA Read More Reviews

“Your equipment was top-notch, with particular nods to the great fitting AXO riding gear and fun KLX300. My 11 year-old had the best time, and now can ride a dirt bike!
