    Cool Newbie from Spain

    Kia ora everyone,

    My name is Ńlvaro and I come from sunny Spain (although ironically from the rainy side of it). Iíve been in NZ already for almost two years already and Iíve been amazed by the local scenery.

    Iíve thinking for a while to get my motorcycle license and Iíve finally made up my mind and said that itís time to do it this year. Actually, Iím going to get it this weekend.

    However, as a new rider I will be pretty scared to go around Auckland with my brand-new learnersí licence. Iíd like to know if there are any mentors willing to go around during weekends. Or maybe people touring around Auckland.

    Also, I need to get a LAMS approved motorbike, which Iíll be doing quite shortly. Therefore, Iím happy to receive tips about whatís the ideal beginner bike (for a budget conscious person).

    Regards,
    Ńlvaro

    Cool Espanol !

    Hi Alvaro, did you get a bike ? suzuki sv650 (naked,no fairing) is good. Watch Youtube-vids on learner-riding. The cruiser-riding instructions are good, and transferable to other bikes, especially the slow-speed and turning vids. Practice in large car-parks when no-ones around. Look up 'braking-techniques' too, helps you stay alive. Good luck
