Hi, I’m J.D. Redmon.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a love for motorcycles. My first real bike was a 1982 Honda 900 CB Custom. Since then, I have owned a Harley Electra Glide, Road King and currently have a Victory Cross Country Tour.
In the late 1980’s, I became a police officer. As a patrol officer, I would often watch our department’s motorcycle squad conduct funeral escorts, parades and other special functions. I dreamed of becoming a “MOTOR MAN”. This is the term used in police circles to identify a motorcycle cop, or any law enforcement officer assigned to the motorcycle division.
Well, that day came and I was transferred to the department’s motorcycle unit. Of course, I was required to go through a two week long, police motorcycle training course. I thought, “this will be easy. I’ve been riding motorcycles for years”. I thought wrong. All the years of riding, I had picked up some “bad habits”.
My training consisted of the proper use of the rear brake at slow speeds, friction zone and the proper use of the head and eyes. Sound familiar? It should. It’s the same fundamentals that have been taught to motor officers around the world and the same techniques Jerry teaches in his DVDs. These techniques help me survive my years on the motorcycle unit and I’m happy to say, accident free.
My good friend, Jerry “Motorman” Palladino has perfected these same techniques by not only teaching the skills to numerous motorcycle riders, but also producing by far, the best Motorcycle Instructional Video that is on the market.
I had the privilege to train with Jerry in Florida in March of 2008, and have been certified by him to teach the techniques that are taught in his videos and at his classes. The techniques will have your confidence and skills improving 100% before my four to five hour class is complete.
Now you have the opportunity to learn these same techniques right here in North Carolina. I invite you to sign up today for any of my up coming classes. You too, will be riding “Like a Pro”.
I would like to thank my wife, Stephanie, for inspiring me to have the desire to share these techniques and training, and to Jerry and Donna for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Ride Like a Pro business. See you soon, J.D.
