    What is Ride Right Ride Safe?

    It is a riding school developed and run by BRONZ members.

    One of the aims of BRONZ (Biker Rights Organisation Of New Zealand) is "To promote road safety through road user education"

    So this course is run by BRONZ members as part of an attempt to meet that goal.

    The course is aimed at road riding, NOT the track. So no good coming along to learn how to best set up your suspension for racing or to get yer knee down.

    We meet the third Sunday of each month (mostly) at the Whenuapai air base and they let us use some largely unused runway for running the course.

    As it is staffed by volunteers the charge is very low ($50.00) we essentailly just aim to cover costs.

    What you get is access to some bloody experienced instructors and great advice on most any motorcycling subject. There are usually about 8 instructors and a maximum of about 20 students so there is a lot of one on one time and you get the benefit of different views and ideas from the different instructors.

    The day is about 50/50 theory and practical split into 4 sections so you get to try out what you have just been through in the class.

    Can we teach you anything you don't already know?
    First time I went helped out with an away class was for a Ulysses organised event. Some of these guy had been riding longer than I have been alive. I am thinking WTF are we going to teach them. But without exception the class was well recieved and all said they learned something. So weather you have been riding for 40yrs, or you are returning to riding or just starting out I really believe we can be of benefit.

    RRRS is now being run in Dunedin as a joint effort between the Otago Motorcycle Club and BRONZ Otago. Big ups to ACC for their assistance with setting this up.

    Check out the RRRS web site for more information.

    Nothing coming up in the Manawatu / Wanganui area - I suppose Hawera is only another hour on

    I'd been riding for around 20+ years when a girl in the club I was with organised a day with these blokes. I went along to help make up the numbers thinking that there wasn't a hell of a lot that I would pick up from this course. Well I was wrong. Excellent day no matter what your experience level. Highly recommended.
