    In all honesty Jono, Tricia O'conner would be well worth a call. All her info is in the link below...

    Good decision AFF. Take a step back and allow a trainer to attend to the essentials and then help provide the extra stuff from there.

    I have it on good authority (me Mum) that I went from sitting to walking. None of the "crawling" shit for me!

    .... got asked to leave the "empty" carpark though......QUOTE]


    REALLY! What dick would do that.


    I did my learners with Steve, then provisional & full with Dawn.


    I did the full-monty for the two latter, even after several years riding moto-cross and a year on a ZZR1100 (without a license - not good).

    During my provisional training I could not believe the number of bad habits I had developed, and stuff that had changed that I did not know about. Had I not done the training first I am convinced I would have failed. Money VERY well spent IMHO.

    For the full the training it was just re-enforcing good road habits and riding technique - I still believe it was money well spent.


    Good luck with everything and we hope to see her on the road soon.

    BHS Prep, Test and afterwards

    I just did my BHS a few weeks ago with Christine from Western Bay Riding when I was down in Rotorua/Taupo over the weekend. She ran me through a lesson and built everything up one bit at a time, was a great first experience! I haven't got a bike yet so I went out for a lesson today with Chris from Passmasters in Auckland, and again had a great time and learnt heaps. For me it's been a great way to get some riding experience and learn in a safer setting than rushing to find a bike and just heading out by myself. If you find her an instructor whose style works for her, then surely after a lesson with them, the BHS will be straight forward - to be honest, its what I'm learning from these instructors since the BHS that I'm really appreciating though. I figure I had lessons when I learnt to drive a car 17 years ago, why treat bikes any differently?

    Anne says Hi
    Yeah I did a low-speed handling course with Tricia and found her really great to learn from. Ny BHS though was done in a group of about 8 people back in the day and we had one guy who, quite honestly, none of us wanted anywhere near us as he did not listen and would not follow instructions at all. I think he had to come back again for another go later.

    When you consider that after the BHS you need only sit the theory part of your license then you're legally allowed out in potentially life altering/ending situations never ever underestimate the value of safety and training. Unless you consider yourself sufficiently experienced (and who of us here didn't either learn to drive a car from our dad / get help from another rider who mentored or guided us through our early days etc) to give her the assistance she needs please give serious thought to professional training.

    Some people DO find it more of a challenge than others to build the skills for handling a motorbike so apart from it being a tad rude, if the instructor did actually use those words to her that you've said, try to take stuff on board with a slightly thicker skin. Some of the best advice is the harshest.
