The classroom part is basically watching videos and answering questions, the answers to which can be found in the booklet that you get on the first day. It's all pretty self explanatory, which was cool because I had zero experience.
The first riding range was pretty intensive, we did drills over and over, and the instructors were there any time you wanted to pull over and ask a question. Once again, they went over every little thing from getting on the bike, to how to work the clutch to get going, to shifting. They really work for a long time on every little thing, which is great for a beginner, such as myself. There were some experienced riders in my group, and they were helpful as well when the instructor was on the other end of the course.
The majority of the bikes were Honda Rebels, which look like the pic below (pic courtesy of Honda Motorcycles)
I did some research and they are pretty much the go-to for beginner cruisers. (super reliable, manageable, but fast enough for highway. I'd definitely consider one for my first bike, it was fun to ride.)
Would I recommend the class so far? Yes. If you have no motorcycle experience, it will definitely get you started the right way.
