"Thanks for working with me on my basic handling skills course. I was impressed to get individual tuition, which I hadn't expected. I Appreciated how adaptable you were in accommodating existing skills, and identifying how our time together could be most beneficial. You were patient with me as a beginner to motorcycles, and it looked to me like you were good too with the more advanced guys who arrived after my course. You were clear and fair, and I'll look forward to working with you for my CBTA." Eric (Nelson)
"I recently did a back to biking course with Tim who I found very helpful andin knowledgeable. He Gave me back confidence to get back up to speed and I also learnt a lot. Thanks." Darren (Tahunanui).
"we were very impressed with your patience and professionalism when Fergus did his basic handling skills course with you. It was obvious you enjoy doing it and care about riders safety. I believe he learnt some valuable skills, especially about awareness of his surroundings and other road users. We will definitely be booking him in for your restricted licence course in the near future." Graeme (Motueka)

"Really enjoyed the course, especially the fact it was one to one, and that we took it at my pace, as opposed to a pre-determined speed. Great wee bike to be tested on, easy to handle. Highly recommend." Bill (Nelson).
"The loan bike was ideal for the task and very nice to ride, powerful enough, not too heavy and was easy to control..Upon passing the course it felt like an achievement rather than a given. Overall I have nothing but praise for what you offer and will not hesitate to recommend your services. " Russell (Nelson).
