We are proud to announce that Ken Hill, America’s top rider training coach, has bought part ownership of TrackTime, the Pacific Northwest’s premier track day provider.
Over the years, Ken has dedicated himself to establishing a culture of professional coaching in the motorcycle community. Drawing on his many years of riding and coaching experience, Ken’s unique approach is to analyze what the best riders in the world do, decode it, and teach it in a manner accessible to riders at all levels. Ken has not only identified the fundamentals of motorcycle riding, but developed an unambiguous (and unprecedented) pathway for learning those fundamentals and improving technique. Ken’s intent is to standardize both the language used to describe, and the method for teaching, motorcycle riding techniques to both riders and instructors, whether street or track.
Given TrackTime’s commitment to superior rider experience, with some of the smallest groups in the Pacific Northwest, and training for riders at all levels, including personalized coaching, we are thrilled to give Ken a platform from which to reach more riders and offer our riders and staff the benefit of his expertise. Ken states, “The opportunity to be a partner in TrackTime suddenly became available and I jumped at the chance! I’ve watched and been a part of what co-owners JD Bucklin and Alan Schwen built and it is the perfect hub for all riders to have access to the levels of rider training and instructor training I’ve been working on for so long, and the TrackTime staffers are amazing. Having bought out JD’s share of the business and becoming the new co-owner, I look forward to working with Alan to develop some incredible next steps for TrackTime participants.”
Co-Owner Alan Schwen adds, “JD and I started TrackTime with the idea of having low rider count sessions with professional training as a foundation at all of our events. Ken has been instrumental in helping us build that and with Ken making TrackTime a home for his MotoPilotrider and instructor training programs, we couldn’t be more thrilled. In addition, we’re launching a TrackTime riders’ club and premier events program. More information to follow soon on these exciting new developments!”
