Fred Rau has described the Streetmasters Motorcycle Workshop instructors as "the highest-caliber imaginable." We've assembled a team of "master instructors" for you to learn from. These dedicated instructors, track marshals and staff are experienced motorcycle riders and well-respected training professionals with first-hand knowledge of proven riding techniques and skills. Our team is overseen by lead instructor, Walt Fulton.
Nancy Foote, Streetmasters owner and Track Marshall, is an avid motorcyclist who has been riding street bikes for over 25 years. She enjoys riding backroads and byways on any of her four bikes: a Honda CB-1, two Honda CBR400RRs and a Kawasaki ZRX-1200.
