Meet Pramod Roa aka Mo

Mo at Ride Like A Pro

Diana and I met Pramod Roa aka Mo last summer at the Delaware/Maryland State HOG Rally. Mo had recently purchased a Fat Boy® Lo and joined the Baltimore Metro HOG Chapter. He wanted to meet people at the state rally so he contacted me in order to volunteer. As the Volunteer Coordinator I can tell you he was a big help and probably the nicest person I have met in years. I even tried to persuade him to join my HOG Chapter in addition to Baltimore Metro. Meeting people like Mo is what makes HOG events fun, so you can imagine my pleasant surprise when Mo arrived on his Fat Boy® for the Ride Like A Pro class Diana and I took on May 1st in southern Maryland.

I asked Mo if he would write a little something about his experience at the Ride Like A Pro of Maryland class and this is what he was kind enough to put together:

Hi, I ride a 2010 Fat Boy® Lo . I have clocked about 7200 miles on my motorcycle. I completed my Riders Edge Basic course in 2009 and then took the Riders Edge advanced course in 2010. Both the courses were at the local Harley-Davidson dealer at Baltimore and were conducted very well. I learned a lot from the skilled rider course at the HD dealership and wanted to further advance my abilities to become a safer rider (lots of tools driving out there, one has to watch ones back all the time) and also get over my inhibitions over corners. Hence when I heard there was Ride Like A Pro school around my area, I signed up immediately. I got in touch with Dave via email. He was very helpful and gave me all the info regarding the class. He was kind enough to reserve my place and let me pay at a later date due to issues on my end (Thanks, Dave appreciate it). I rode to Waldorf, MD on the may 1st and was pleasantly surprised to see Jay and his lovely wife Diana which made taking the class all the more fun.

The exercises were really fun. All the instructors were extremely competent, very helpful and encouraged everybody to do better all the time. For me it was a great opportunity to improve my skills, especially in the circle and also through the cones. I had a wonderful day riding on my motorcycle, getting to know it better and understanding it better. I walked away a better rider when the class was done.

I must mention that I am really grateful for having done the advanced rider course at the HD dealership which for me was a stepping stone towards the Ride Like A Pro class. I feel everybody who likes to ride and loves their motorcycles should do these courses. It was really great! Dave, Christine and the team at Ride Like A Pro of MD are really great people. I am really happy for doing this course as I have just improved my riding skills and that just made riding my motorcycle more fun. Me and my motorcycle communicate better now 🙂

Look at Mo Go!
