About us

The Ride Like a Pro program was started by Jerry “Motorman” Palladino, a retired motor officer living in Florida. Jerry has created an incredible training tool with his “ Ride Like a Pro ” DVDs. Riders come from all over to take his classes. Now these same instructional classes are available here in Texas through Ride Like A Pro Houston, which is a franchise of Jerry “Motorman” Palladino owned by Wayne Coleman and Daryl Stroud. You too can learn the same fundamental skills that the motor officers use. Even experienced riders will improve 100%!

Meet Our team

Wayne Coleman

Wayne Coleman

Police Officer for 30+ Years

Wayne is a 30+ year Texas law enforcement veteran, with a strong love for riding, and a passion for helping others become better riders. He served as a motor officer/instructor, and later as the supervisor over the motor unit. Wayne loves to have fun, whether hunting and fishing, or going somewhere on two wheels, he’s there to have a good time. Wayne was an original partner, starting the Ride Like A Pro Houston franchise in 2008.

Daryl Stroud

Daryl Stroud

Police Officer for 30+ Years

Daryl is also 30+ year veteran in Texas law enforcement, currently serving his department as the supervisor over the motor unit. In 2013 he officially joined Wayne in this training adventure when Wayne’s original partner retired. Although growing up in a 100% “motorcycle-forbidden” household slowed his entry into riding, he wasted no time getting his first bike at 19; after moving out of course. Since then, he’s spent much of his adult life on 2 wheels, and always striving to improve his skills.

Dustin Stroud

Dustin Stroud

Police Officer Since 2012

Dustin followed in his dad’s footsteps and entered Texas law enforcement in 2012. He currently supervises his department’s Traffic Unit, and is actively working toward establishing a motor unit there. Dustin has proven that you don’t have to be a motor officer to be a highly-skilled rider. He started riding at age 19 with the Ride Like A Pro tools as his foundation. His belief in the value of this training has led to his desire to share it with others.

You do not need a therapist if you own a motorcycle.
