Spotlight: Rob Jensen – Motorcycle Masters

Hey coach! Yep, I refer to Rob Jensen as my motorcycle coach. I told him I want to learn from him so that I can pass on his professional riding tips to the ladies that I lead at East Coast Female Riders. But really, I’ve secretly tapped into his mind and I am transmuting all of his 30+ years of motorcycle skill over to myself At.Every.Possible.Chance.I.Get!

You see, Rob is one of those calm, capable, knowledgable trainers who teaches and shares without ego, and with such calm and ease, that even the most nervous trainee is whooping with joy after just one session with him. A training session with Rob is never him talking “at” you or simply “telling” you what to do. He takes you on a journey. Almost like a guided motorcycle dance, always with a lot of fun involved. His teaching style is more zen than zoom, and for every Motorcycle Masters student that I have ever spoken to, they say his training sticks with them forever. I love seeing Rob and his team produce safe, skilled motorcycle riders. On a personal note, I credit the substantial braking and cornering training that I completed with Rob over a period of one year as the number one reason why my challenging motorcycle adventure in Thailand in March 2022 was the success that it was.

Rob will be our resident Girl Moto trainer. You can expect to see lots of helpful moto videos to help guide you on your motorcycle journey. Wherever you are in the world, I promise you will learn a lot from Rob.
