A motorcycle rider since the age of 7, Ricardo Rodriguez’s twin passions are bikes and teaching. For many years, this BMW Rider Academy pro has given riding confidence to everyone from police to teens, both here in the U.S. and abroad. Emergency Braking (with and without ABS and traction control), Avoidance and Tight Circles are his favorite exercises; rider safety is his major concern. Advice to new riders? “Always look where you want to go, and be as smooth as possible with your controls.” Find out more about the U.S. Rider Academy on their website.
