About

Mark Ross Jr

As a long time motorcycle enthusiast, I have been riding motorcycles daily for 18 years since the age of 17. During this time frame, I’ve had the privilege of riding a multitude of motorcycles ranging from 250cc’s to 1800cc’s including but not limited to, Sport Bikes, Cruisers, Touring, Harley Davidson’s, and more. This provides me the unique ability to teach people of all ages how to effectively and safely ride and operate not only their own cycles, but those of others as well. I always instill in people that if you can “Ride One, You can Ride Them ALL.” I also have an extensive background in “all things motorcycle” focused primarily on Customer Service and Safety as my number one priority!

I have been providing private 1-on-1 motorcycle training for over 2 years. I am extremely thorough, patient, kind, and possess the ability to tailor any lesson to various, customer specific needs while addressing their main concerns.

If you are seeking an in depth, comprehensive, safe and enjoyable learning experience, I encourage you to review my customer feedback so you are confident in knowing you chose the perfect Instructor for all of your motorcycle needs!

RIDE ALONGS
Our ride along sessions is geared towards new riders looking to gain road experience and those looking for a real time assessment of their current skills in order to ride safely.

MOTORCYCLE PURCHASE ASSISTANCE
Don’t let your eyes get bigger than your ride! Dealerships are in the business of selling motorcycles. At JR’s, we make sure to fit you on the appropriate bike that you can safely ride and grow into. JR’s has established relationships with dealerships who have expressed a sincere desire to ensure they aren’t selling motorcycles to people who don’t know how to ride. They believe in our training and for that reason are willing to offer the best deals to our clients. Our motorcycle assistance program gives you access to our partners (link) at no cost to you.
In addition to our relationships with dealerships, JR’s staff is available to help you fully evaluate any motorcycles you may find on social media or sale sites. We know what questions to ask and what to look for when purchasing a used motorcycle. Knowing the true value of a motorcycle as well as the true cost of repairs means we won’t let anyone take advantage of you!

MOTORCYCLE TRANSPORT
Whether you purchased your bike and don’t have your permit/license yet or just don’t feel safe riding it home, JR’s is happy to offer motorcycle transport assistance.

MOTORCYCLE MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
JR’s PCL offers professional motorcycle repair and maintenance services through our connections with private, motorcycle only repair shops. We can offer you the peace of mind knowing your motorcycle will be diagnosed, repaired, and ready for pick up or drop off in a fast, professional, reliable manner. Don’t overpay at a dealership ever again! Our teams of expert engineers and mechanics have been building and repairing motorcycles for over 35 years! Please call us for more details to arrange your next service!

OF NOTE
At JR’s Private Cycle Lessons, our mission is to teach those who want to learn how to safely and effectively ride a motorcycle. When you come to JR’s Private Cycle Lessons, you receive personalized, non-stop instruction, customized to your specific skill level.

While we recognize the value of state run safety courses, these classes are typically days long, designed as a one size fits all approach, and focus more on classroom content than practical, on range individual rider training. Whether you grasp a concept quickly or need more time, you are only able to learn at the pace of those around you. At JR’s, we use a customized approach to teach you how to ride at your own pace while building your comfort and confidence level as your progress.

We are not affiliated with DMV or state run safety courses. Although we cannot offer you an endorsement on your license, we can offer you the peace of mind knowing you chose the right place to come for all of your rider training needs. Customer satisfaction is our priority and you will absolutely leave our lesson knowing how to ride.

As individual results vary based on learning styles, please note that riding is not for everyone! We will always do our best to ensure every rider who comes to us leaves satisfied and knowing how to ride. However, there are times where unfortunately we will advise you that riding a motorcycle may not be for you. This is not only for your protection, but that of others as well. Because of this, we always stress the importance of coming back for follow up lessons once you become more familiar with the concept of motorcycle riding.

I never rode a motorcycle before and Mark made me feel extremely comfortable. I learned a lot from him. Highly recommend!

19 Oct 2020

Totally amazing service.I had Mark train my wife and my best friend and both of them came out of the training with far more experience and confidence than they probably ever could have imagined in a few hours.

15 Oct 2020

Completely blown away not just by just Mark's teaching skills but also the friendly connection he has when you run into him on the phone and in real life. I would have to say being terrified driving a 1,000 pound 1,300 cc chopper motorcycle gift from my dad with no experience what so ever would be nothing short of an understatement. I am not sure how to exactly put it, but with Mark around and walking me through his process he made it feel 110% safe. I had even forgotten all about my fear of making my motorcycle blow in flames on the 5 o'clock news and went into a state of comfortability cruising around at 10mph/hr, before I knew I was shifting gears. After the first lesson was up, yes the first lesson, I drove my bike home while Mark closely followed me every second of the way. If anyone asked me how to learn to ride a motorcycle even any related questions to a motorcycle without a doubt Mark is your go to guy. Now despite me being a pessimist, I can easily say I will ace the course.

I wish I could have given 100 stars.It still wouldn't be enough.I just had to repost because with Mark's amazing help I passed my M/C exam today.I now have my M class back after 45 years.I recommend that everyone either a beginner or someone in need for a refresher course go and see Mark.I guarantee you won't regret it.

I decided late in life to see if riding a motorcycle was a possibility. Lessons were the way to go and luckily I found Mark JR's Private Cycle Lessons. I asked that he be blunt at the end of my first lesson and tell me if it was indeed for me. The knowledge and expertise that he showed was amazing. A 3 hr lesson flew by and at the end not only did I know all the fundamentals about the bike but I was up to 2nd gear!!!!! I couldn't believe the patience he had and I'm ready to take my 2nd lesson! Looks like this old gal has a new hobby thanks to Mark!! OUTSTANDING JOB
