At MotoVentures we proudly say we utilize dirt bikes for motorcycle training. Our approach is acknowledged by all the experts as the best way to learn to ride motorcycles and the best way to take your current riding to the next level regardless of what you ride now. We now call our training “Dirt First” and after 16 years of training full time we have earned a great reputation with hundreds of satisfied consumers, numerous repeat customers and referral customers, and many great reviews by the media. We have a large fleet of the best dirt bikes in every size, a full set of protective riding gear for every person, and our own private, ideally-suited, centrally-located, 350-acre property in sunny Southern California near Temecula, CA. We utilize professional instructors and we follow our own training curriculum. We take reservations in advance and thanks to our great location and weather we can operate all year around, usually on weekends, but often on weekdays too.
