Diane Leftwich


Diane grew up around motorcycles because her whole family rides.  Then she married a rider and raised her own family of motorcycle riders.  Now Diane is teaching a new generation of riders as a RiderCoach with Chesapeake HD.  She loves to help people ride for the first time.

Paul Cavanaugh


Paul finds that coaching rider courses makes him a safer rider, which is a real asset for his motorcycle touring business.  When he's not coaching or touring, he's spending time with his family...and sometimes that includes building homes around the World with Habitat for Humanity.

Jocelyn "JP" Palmer


JP is that cool high school teacher we all wish we had.  She knows how to keep you engaged in the classroom and challenged on the riding range.  JP knows the curriculum inside and out, and that means more fun and more learning for you.

Scott Virden


Scott's friendly sense of humor puts riders at ease.  A former motor officer, he's right at home on the riding range.  With RiderCoach Scott, you'll learn a lot, and have fun doing it.

Nate Cibrian


Nate crossed over from Harley enthusiast to motorcycle safety instructor.  He serves his country in the military, his town as a firefighter, and the motorcycling community as a RiderCoach.  Nate was born to serve.
