    Happy to shadow

    Hi there. I have recently stopped instructing and would like to give something back to the motorcycling community who have been so good to me over the past 6 years.

    I am a Cert IV Motorcycle Instructor and obviously hold the Dept of Transport instructors licence.

    My offer is totally free of any strings or charges!!! I am happy to give up to 4 hours a week to help those who cannot find a shadow. I still have and will use my Sena Com systems. All I ask is that your bike is roadworthy and registered, you are very close to going for your licence and you live within 20 minutes of me (Currumbine). Note well this offer is not open for MOPEDS. Also happy to escort you to your PDA, Joondalup licence centre only. ( Not the 0705 test, I need my beauty sleep)

    There is no guarantee that I will be available to suit you, as it is my intention to be out on my own bike having fun!!!
    First in best dressed. Send me a PM if you wish to contact me.

    Stay safe out there

    I have a couple of guy's who would love a couple of hours of your time ,both recently failed their lams test's one for emergency braking and some kinda circle you have to do six times.

    The other guy seems to have taken to bikes pretty well and has only ever ridden scooters in bali up till recently ,but already loves carving up corners on some sort of naked sports/trail bike a cb650f brand new from planet honda four weeks ago ,he was on a cb 250 before very confident maybe he failed the attitude test i don't know but would you be willing to have a look at them for me.

    Will send you a pm with my number thanks for the offer.
    I tried a couple of times to teach one of them the technique of circles but having brand new bikes i think they are afraid of dropping them apparently he had to do tight o circles with defined corners six times and an emergency stop which i thought i covered pretty well ,their general riding is pretty good both have around 7000 kays on new bikes riding with me in just over 4 months.

    I was taught figure eights and emergency stop and a matchbox behind the back wheel on a hill start maybe things are different now for sure ,i did tell them to get some professional lessons before their test's but like all young blokes they generally don't listen.

    I didn't teach my younger son who has had his license for nearly four years he has a sp1 honda, but i did teach my eldest son who failed his test for the emergency stops and o turns.

    The main thing i concentrated on with my oldest son who rides a brand new cbr 500r was cornering at speed setting up for the apex where to start and finish the corner safely and braking into the corner with trail braking to load the front.
    I also taught him lane placement one meter from the center line so you can go either way if a car pulls out in front of you, also two fingers on the front brake and to slow down for intersections and watch drivers hand movement's as they will start turning the steering wheel and move off before they look back in your direction things that have kept me alive on a bike for over a million kays on over forty motorcycles.

    My son is now riding quicker and cornering faster than guy's we have come across on unrestricted licenses and is faster in six months and 10,000 kays of riding than my younger son on his sp1 with four years experience.
    On one ride on the balingup to nannup road he really impressed me and really has some natural talent not from me but i suspect his mother.

    In my view training is a good thing to get you up to a reasonable standard quickly, but nothing beats riding in all conditions on different road types including gravel especially gravel if you can master dirt and gravel you can ride anywhere and the best riders i know started out in motocross.

    You just have to get out there and ride in the wet ride on country roads with gravel on the corners, industrial areas with oil and diesel spills, wet icy city roads and riding long distances in violent storms and high winds and northwest heat that is experience that will make you a great rider in the northwest and other parts of australia you will find cattle grids don't stop and look at one you will never cross one if you do just hit it at speed.

    Don't be the rider doing 10,000 kays a year in the city on a polished sports bike get out there take some risks and really ride.
