Guam's e-bike riders ready for the road
By Pacific Island Times News Staff
Sun Energy Motors has graduated the first batch of bike riders and enthusiasts who have taken up its Motorcycle Basic Riding & Safety Course.
“Nothing motivates us more in providing these courses than having leaders and front-liners of public safety in our island community come together with us in helping instill greater safety and security on our streets," said Walter Ulloa, owner of Sun Energy Motors.
Sun Energy Motors sells electric motorbikes on Guam.
The course included a classroom session and hands-on skill training. The classroom instruction helps trainees as they prepare for the written portion of the Guam motorcycle license examination as well as rules of the road and riding safety.
The skills training provides them with some experience riding the Evoke Urban Classic electric motorcycle and helps prepare them for the road test portion of the examination. Safety instruction is given as a critical component of riding.
“The demand for and the successful run of these classes encourages us to continue providing this course in the months ahead. It really is inspiring and uplifting to watch these students learn about motorcycle riding and riding safely on Guam’s streets," Ulloa said.
Graduates received their certificates awarded to them for successfully completing the course held on Feb. 25, March 4 and 11.
Participating in the presentation will be Guam Police Department Precinct Commanders of Tamuning and Dededo as well as GPD Highway Patrol Division.
