"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

"The Bronze Ride Forever course is an absolute must do for any rider - I have been riding for almost 20 years (mostly self taught) and gained so much more insight and confidence than by any other method of learning. The instructors were awesome."

V Nankivell - Auckland

"Karel and Howard have and obvious love of motorcycles. I found them both extremely approachable making me comfortable in asking questions and learning. I loved their common sense and hands on approach. I can't wait for the next one....THANK YOU"

Vanessa M - Waikato

"Highly recommended in every way - professional, friendly and very helpful instructor, worked at our pace and helped individuals with specific areas to work on. Great to have small group - meant there was time for each of us to receive 1-on-1 coaching. Can not rate the course highly enough! Would absolutely recommend to others, have given me so much more confidence on the road!"

Megan W - Auckland

"Pro Rider courses are a must for me, at least a couple per year to help keep me sharp and make me aware of any sloppy habits I might be developing. I find the course contents and the instructors very helpful to me as an older,'born-again' rider. "

Andrew L - Thames

"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 am feeling a lot more confident knowing I am taking the correct and safest line and have increased my cornering skills confidence hugely"
