"A big thank you to the Prorider team and especially Howard and Karel for giving me the opportunity to gain much needed motorcycle handling skills. I had a fantastic day and gained a huge leap in confidence in my ability to handle my new bike. Rest assured I will be back for further skills enhancement in the not too distant future."

Paul M

"A fantastic course which is well worth the time and money to undertake. I would encourage all riders to do it. If we all adopted the same approach, it will be so easy and we all reduce our risk of harm."

K Jacobs - Auckland

"Am an experienced rider already, but found that it was good to go over techniques, riding style, bad habits etc and simply to get out and ride with others on the open road rather than just the daily commute to improve skills."

G Black - Auckland

Kim S, Kati Kati

"This course was well structured and layered so that bit by bit through the day my skills improved with ample opportunity to try out new techniques as well. This has really improved my riding, thankyou !!"

Kim S, Kati Kati

"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."

R Galloway - Auckland

"Really enjoyed our day at Pukekohe even though we had vastly different levels of riding experience. The coaches were friendly, supportive and really knew their "stuff". We know our bikes better and came away with areas of riding that we can work on, resulting in us being better and safer riders on the roads.

Lynlee & Peter B, Thames

"The people presenting the course where clearly knowlegdable and were well able to communicate that knowledge. Their enthusiasm and interest in the subject showed."
