Testimonials


Great instruction. Built confidence in my skills and abilities. Gained a greater understanding of the intricate operation of motorcycle handling. Better understanding of how to "read the track"."

David N.B.previous graduate

This is one of the best schools I've ever taken and I've taken a few. Ed, you have a unique ability to explain things. Loved the explanations about * gearing and ratios, * when you know you can go faster, * why do a track walk * etc."

I learned alot and I am very thank full for everything. Just wish my foot was up to the task for the sprint races on Sunday. But it;s sometimes better safe then sorry. I did in like doing the HW solo 20 and look foward to seeing you alot more. Thanks again Scott F."

I took the school on July 9, 2011. I arrived at the trackaround 7:00 A.M and checked in. At exactly 8:00 A.M, we went on the track for a track walk, to familiarize ourselves with the track. At this point, Mr. Bargy taught us skills on how to analyze every track, not just Jennings GP. From there we went on to the classroom, and we had alternating classroom and track time, where we practiced what we learned in the class on the track. The class was extremely beneficial. I recently started doing trackdays, and wanted to learn the proper skills for trackdays and race days. I have to say, learned A LOT. I actually felt a lot more confident, and felt my lap times improve. By the end of the day; I had learned and gained so much confidence, it was unbelievable. The class is definitely worth every penny. One key advise for this class is BE ON TIME. There is so much information, that there is no time to waste. I also have to say that Ed Bargy is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He truly cares about his students, and is a great teacher. I had a long conversation with him after our class, and he really gave me some valuable advice. I feel very privileged to have taken his class. Thanks"

Duluth City Police Duluth GA February 25, 1997 To Whom It May Concern: I had the pleasure of attending Ed Bargy’s Advanced Motorcycle Racing School last summer in Pooler, Georgia. The Duluth Police Department established a motorcycle unit last June. As usual, I chose to break away from the traditional Harley Davidson police motorcycles and purchased Buell sport motorcycles. Standard police motorcycle training was not available to us due to Buell’s wider turning radius, quicker acceleration and shorter stopping distance. Although the Officers riding the Buell’s had ten years or more riding experience, I felt it necessary that they receive additional training in the area of high speed riding and maneuvers. Ed Bargy’s school meets our needs. The class room training was conducted in a professional and comprehensive manner. The hands on training were excellent. All of the instructors were very knowledgeable and eager to give that extra effort in training if you need it. The entire staff was safety conscience to ensure all students were given the safest training possible. I highly recommend this training to all law enforcement motorcycle units. I will continue to send future motor officers to Ed Bargy’s Advanced Motorcycle Racing School. R.D. B. Chief of Police 02/25/1997"
