Motorcycle Riding's Cool was founded in 2001 and has trained more than 7000 new and experienced riders since then. Located in Chicago, it is the first private motorcycle and scooter training facility to operate in Illinois. Motorcycle Riding's Cool is endorsed by The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and uses curriculum provided by MSF. MSF is the standard in motorcycle training in the United States, as well as other parts of the world. The research-based curriculum is the only one of its kind.
Our instructors are all MSF certified RiderCoaches who have successfully completed training through MSF. They are also certified through the State of Illinois as Driver Training School Instructors.
Motorcycle Riding's Cool staff has over 100 years combined riding experience. All RiderCoaches come to MRS with a minimum of 5 years riding experience, and go on to obtain two separate training certifications, attend professional development workshops, and constantly work on sharpening their current riding skills.

Machines and Helmets
All of our training motorcycles and scooters are required to pass an IDOT safety inspection every year. Our machines vary in size, and seat height, in order to accommodate a variety of riders. Motorcycle Riding's Cool furnishes full face helmets for all students. Full face helmets offer the most protection, covering the chin, nose, and eyes.
Our classroom and office space is a timber Soho-esque loft located in Chicago's West Town neighborhood. Our enclosed newly paved riding range located near the United Center spans over 400 feet long and can accommodate up to 10 riders at one time. It is equipped with restroom facilities, and is conveniently located near a variety of restaurants and cafes.
