“Friday July 28 was my first time riding the Ridge, and first time riding with MotoVixens. Both came HIGHLY recommended, and I wholeheartedly agree. A fantastic track and a great provider! It was an awesome day, well organized, smoothly run, had a great vibe, and with incredibly helpful and friendly staff and vendors.”

Carol, I just wanted to say thank you! We left early because of the heat, but this was an amazing experience! I’ve had my motorcycle endorsement for a few years now, but I’ve only ridden a handful of times. I’m not a very confident rider, but this track day gave me tons of positive experience! I could already tell I was riding more confidently on the way home versus when I left home. Please send my regards to Marshal Jenny, it was wonderful to be shown around the track in a slow and controlled pace! When I returned from my last session, my friends informed me that there was always a marshal behind me to keep the other riders away. I’m sorry if my inexperience got in the way of the other riders, but thank you so much for looking out for me! I felt that this was a welcome and safe environment, and I hope to ride with you all again! Best regards, -Hannah
Carol was my instructor during my first track day. It was the first time I was ever on a street bike, and it was raining. She was very approachable and informative. She kept me going at the right speed for my experience level, and she always asked me if I had any questions. Her confidence and consistency on the track helped reassure me throughout the day. She taught me the correct way around a race track and overall how to ride safely and to have fun. She was constantly looking over her shoulder to critique my riding and always had something to say to help my riding. She was patient and fun to ride with.
I know without a shadow of a doubt that I would not be able to call myself a motorcycle rider today without the help and instruction of Carol Carpenter. I first got the bug to ride a motorcycle when I was 20 years old, but it would be until I was 30 that I finally had the opportunity to try. I first signed up at my local motorcycle school thinking I would be able to just get my endorsement on the same day. I had been a passenger on a motorcycle for so many years it seemed to be a given. But the morning of the class, I found myself in the awkward position of being excused because I “didn’t appear to be learning as quickly as the others.” I was confused but accepted the findings because I thought the instructors knew better. I borrowed a friend’s Rebel 250 and started to practice on my own. I took the Pre- BRC class and was told by that instructor that I appeared competent and could progress. I retook the BRC class 2 months later at the same school and progressed through the whole day. At the end, however, the instructors told me that they didn’t think I was progressing fast enough again. I asked them to explain to me what they were seeing, by the instructor didn’t have time and just let me stand on the side and watch until they could dismiss me again. I was devastated and completely discouraged. But that’s when I found Carol. I sent her a LONG message explaining my desperation. By the end of the day, she had called me on the phone and let me explain my whole struggle. She was so encouraging and understanding and believed that she could help me. She arranged to meet me on my terms with my bike and walked me through how the process would work. The first time we met, she brought a headset for me to use with my helmet and had someone else inspect my bike before we took it out. She let me show her where my skillset was and even talked me through the ride to help me stay calm. She gave great pointers on what I was doing well and what I really needed to work on. Carol was even able to help introduce me to mechanics who specialized in my bike and gave great feedback on equipment and maintenance. Carol was able to really hone in on what I needed to do to feel confident during my endorsement exam and helped properly introduce me to the world of riding. She had reading material for every topic I had questions on. Through her patience and her teaching skills, I was finally able to get my endorsement! I look forward to more lessons from her in the future and couldn’t recommend her enough!
I just did my second track day ever with Moto Vixens. The organization, the welcoming attitude, and their instructor Steve-O has made me double down. I will be back in August because they all made it such a non-intimidating enjoyable experience. I appreciated the openness to dumb azz questions, the straight forwardness with safety concerns, and the overall approach of making the day work!
Well I must commend you and the MotoVixens Team for putting on a stand up track day weekend event. You don’t know much about me Carol but I am 51 and was a club level road-racer from 1990 to 2006. I also did a bunch of WERA/FUSA Endurance races around the nation with Team Hawaii Endurance in the early/mid 90’s. I retired from racing but stayed involved in the community via track days and such. I was in the Army stationed in Hawaii from 89-92 and became a Motorcycle Safety Instructor as well as resident fast guy road-racer. Lol. Not to babble on and on but my point is that I have seen a lot of different organizations put together events and they all have a little different vibe about them. The vibe that I received as a welcome back to the track after 13 years of being away was so amazing and calm, cool and collected. Everyone was so nice and helpful and the amount of Marshal’s riding around and offering great line advice and such was really great. I will say that this was my funnest track day experience EVER!!! The MotoVixens Team, The Ridge as a facility with showers and store and everything it offers and of course the track… What can I say about the track. Absolutely amazing course with grip for days. My new favorite track.
A little about me, I’ve been riding for most my life and currently road race. With that being said, I get the opportunity to ride with a lot of track day providers. My wife wanted to do a Motovixens track day and asked that I trailer her bike to The Ridge. Being the supportive husband I am, I agreed. I was surprised to see all the guys at the riders meeting. I “assumed” it was a women’s only thing. I couldn’t have been more wrong. While they had great instructors for beginners like my wife, they also had racers there like myself. The day started off like any other track day. Talking about rules and flags is a common theme. But what I noticed was the relaxed feel everyone had and how friendly everyone was. The entire day had a more relaxed vibe. Throughout the course of the day I was impressed at how well the instructors worked with my wife and the staff checked on her. It was very relaxing and my wife learned a lot and had a great time. Fast forward to the next time my wife wanted to do a track day with Motovixens. This time I brought one of my race bikes and had the pleasure of running some fast lap times with a couple of the fastest riders in the NW. “not me” As a racer, I enjoy riding with faster guys. It gives me the opportunity to see better lines, tip in points and brake markers. I could run as fast as I wanted and focus on my skills. When I had questions, Oliver was gracious enough to help me. I race with Oliver Jervis at Omrra and anyone that races there will attest that he’s a lap record pace rider. One of the best in the NW and an extremely humble guy to work with. Having attended several track days with Motovixens now, I can honestly say that they provide a quality track day without any pressure. They’re about having fun, riding safe and learning to ride better. Carol is a very gracious host and makes sure to get around the pits and welcome everyone. It’s truly an enjoyable event that is not for “women” only. All levels of riders are there. From the new never been on track riders to lap record riders and everything in between. The thing that everyone has in common is that we’re all having fun and enjoying our day. There are also a lot of people there that are willing to help. From riding to working on bikes, there is someone there with Motovixens to help. Finally, one thing I would like to point out that I appreciated. Motovixens doesn’t pack their riders in. Speaking for myself, it’s very frustrating when I’m trying to work on my lines at a fast pace to be grouped with a full track of people not at the same speed. MotoVixens does a great job of managing how many riders are on track at once. That keeps the track relatively clear and people can ride whatever pace they’re comfortable with. In closing, I would highly recommend Motovixens for ALL levels of riders.
Without hesitation, I recommend that anyone who has the desire to improve their motorcycle riding skills spend some time with Carol. I have been an instructor for many years and had opportunity to work along side Carol many times. You will not find a more dedicated and qualified mentor to help you improve your riding skill set. Carol will make you safer while showing you how to be faster at the same time, if that is your goal. Carol is someone I refer to as an “Instructor’s instructor”. She is completely dedicated to this sport and dedicated to sharing the knowledge she has gained over the many years of riding and racing and being schooled herself by some of the best in the business. You will learn more about how to improve your riding, increase your safety and flat out enjoy the whole experience by spending quality time with Carol. Personally, when I’m at the track and I see Carol, I smile …. because, I know somebody is going to have a great experience, learn a lot, be safer and be smiling themselves from ear to ear at the end of the day. Sounds like a winning combination to me.
My name is Jonathan Lee, and I just wanted to briefly share my first experience and impressions of Carol (my instructor for the day). I signed up for the level 2 school, and was paired up with Carol Carpenter, who would mentor me throughout the day. This has been probably the best and most productive track day I’ve ever had. I’m a relative newcomer when it comes to riding on the track, but I feel like I’ve been able to catch on fairly well. But when Carol started guiding and instructing me, I quickly realized that I needed to work on a few things that would help me ride safely as well as allow me to have the margins/capacity to ride faster. I’ve never met a coach that was so enthusiastic and absolutely genuine when it came to helping other riders develop their skills! Carol broke her criticism down in a way that was easy to understand. She even brought along Troy to further help me with my body positioning, which was quite the eye-opener. Troy and Carol recorded my actual riding on the track, and ended up working as a team to further evaluate my habits & also the areas I was doing well in. These two are quite the deadly combination when it comes to rider coaching & mentoring. Carol was quick to email me her critiques which outlined specifically the areas that I need to work on to get to the next level in my riding. She also made herself very accessible and told me not to hesitate to contact her if I ever have any questions. Once again, I have never met a coach that was this dedicated to helping riders hone their craft. My first experience has been quite incredible thanks to the help of Carol & Troy. Their passion for the sport and its riders is unparalleled. I’ve learned more in this one day than I’ve ever learned in all the track days combined earlier this year. I will, without a doubt, be coming back for future events. Thank you Carol, Troy,and the crew for making my track day a one to remember. Cheers!
