"Karel is really on to it. She is the bees knees of the southern seas. Her tips and training gave me a lot more confidence in motorcycle riding."

Naveen - Auckland

"Fantastic day out. Each time I attend a course I always gain skills which positively result in the way I ride. Upon reflection I find I ride with more confidence and better awareness and control."

Alec K - Auckland

"Thank you so much for a great day, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was awesome to be reminded about things I should be doing on the road but I had become relaxed about doing, so all in all it was a fantastic day. "

Kerry L, Auckland

"This is a great course for anyone just starting out, returning riders or anyone just brushing up who wants someone to look closely at your riding. I learned a great deal in one day and have put the skills to good use in my riding. The instructors are very knowledgeable, friendly, approachable and happy to answer any questions at all levels."

Rick G - Auckland

"Great course, especially liked the fact it was only women. You could ask any questions and not feel silly, and have a lot of fun too. You gave us info, then sent us out to try it, then gave us some more - and sent us back out etc. Worked for me. "

Susan R, Kati Kati

"Karel and her team of tutors are amazing. Not only in highlighting the critical aspects of bike riding , but also extremely professional in looking after the individual needs of all of the riders, especially when there were so many of us during the course, with such diverse riding skill sets."

D Mistry - Auckland

"I feel lucky that it was raining for our training day. Riding in wet weather used to be a major fear for me, now I'm much more confident in the rain. In fact, the raining part of the ride back from Puhoi to Orewa on the twisty roads was the most fun I've had on my bike."
