"Since an off my cornering has been abysmal - after Saturdays course, I now know why, what I was doing wrong and how to correct it. Riding is fun again ! Awesome result, great day. Thanks Howard and Karel."

Ron G - Waikato

"The instructors were very professional, I think the fact that the instructors had many years of experience and passionate about riding really helped and you could ask any questions. I think everyone could go away from this course with something to work on."

Candice M - Auckland

"I have become much more aware of the line of sight of the mirrors, where I should place myself on the road and most importantly Why, in each situation. Thank you for teaching these daily life saving lessons. An extra thanks for helping me regain confidence after my fall :)"

Liz J - Auckland

"Following my fantastic adventure rider training with you I completed my ride across Australia. 7,000km, including 3,000km on unsealed roads, everything from nicely graded clay roads to scary sandy corrugations. Only one fall - no harm! I used everything I learnt, and some! Thanks so much for teaching me the techniques and the confidence I needed."
