Harley-Davidson Jumpstart Rider Experience at Ventura Harley-Davidson

Thank you for choosing to learn to ride with us at Ventura Harley-Davidson. We are excited to start this journey with you and are confident you are going to love the experience.

Before your Learn To Ride VC class begins, swing by the dealership so we can get you ready for class:

We’ll offer you a JUMPSTART™ Demo. If you’ve never been on a motorcycle or if you feel like you need a little refresher prior to class, our JUMPSTART™ demo allows you to sit, start and shift gears on a stationary Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

We’ll help you get fitted for the gear you need for class. Show us your enrollment for the Learn To Ride VC class and our MotorClothes® Collection Staff will review the value of riding with the right protective gear, fit you for everything you need to take the class and offer you a 20% OFF Riding Gear Package (any 3 of the following) to get whatever gear you may need to be road ready:

  • A heavy, long-sleeve shirt or jacket
  • Jeans, chaps, or leather pants
  • Over-the-ankle, sturdy footwear
  • Full-fingered gloves
  • A helmet that meets DOT requirements
  • Eyewear

We’ll take a quick dealership tour. Get the lay of the land of your new home away from home.

And we’ll introduce you to our managers and staff. They are waiting to show you all that Ventura Harley-Davidson has to offer.
Give us a call at to set something up or feel free to stop in any time prior to class and ask for assistance.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
