    dont be such a cunt.
    it's bonding time and shit.

    how old is she, probably a good start.

    if <18 then i suggest john wright. if the cunt isn't dead yet. riderskills or qkkid on here have reputation aswel.

    if >18 then pics required, and i will consider tutoring the adjective noun out of her for at least a week.

    Dawn and Steve at Rider Training are fantastic

    Once they are up to Learner level - NASS

    Can vouch that Steve and Dawn are sweet angels haha, but maybe just a course to get her through the BHST and then it's not really necessary anymore imo
    NASS is really helpful for working on specific skills (U-turns, emergency braking etc) and also meeting new people to ride with :^)

    If she's willing to add me on Facebook I can make her a member of a group I'm in which has some really great people in it; they're the ones who went out with me when I rode on the street for the first time and it made the whole process so much easier and also helped me avoid any accidents lmao

    Wish her luck from me! Also congratulate her on the good choice

    Steve and Dawn are awesome, NASS is free and a great way to learn new skills, and meeting new biker friends.

    We have a lady that comes to Sass on one of those, well she has since moved up in bike size. But the bloody thing went well and kept up. I was impressed for a 125.

    i took it for a ride yesterday and had to wring its neck to get it moving as i tip the scales at 120+ kgs........the girl is a mere 55 kgs so should go a bit better in her hands i suspect......its only got 1600 kms on it so should free up a bit more with use i guess.
