Ross Gratton

I am a father, a husband, a son, a brother. I am a motorcyclist, and I love it 🙂 I am committed to providing you with the most valuable training and the most pleasant experience possible. Riding a motorcycle is not inherently dangerous, sword swallowing is inherently dangerous, relieving yourself on an electric fence is inherently dangerous, motorcycling is just incredibly unforgiving. Unfortunately we see the results of the unforgiving nature of our passion splashed across the media far too often. Let’s be honest, it is all too easy to sit on the side lines and complain about things, that is not what I’m about, I want to be the change I wish to see in the world.
