"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."

Yong W, Auckland North

"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

"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."

Ivan H

"I have so got the vanishing point and throttle control link now. It has really gelled for me.Emergency braking was great. I have been riding motorbikes for years. You never know enough. To have such qualified instructors teaching was magic. I really appreciated the one on one feedback and answers. "

Basil B - Auckland

"Great course, skillfully tailored to the participants. I'm recommending it to all the riders I know"

Mark W

"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

"The woman's training course was all I hoped it would be and more. Even with the rain - which usually really annoys me, I found myself loving the fact that we were able to do the track in the wet and practise cornering in the rain also"
