Good DVD's for noobs

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' at netrider.net.au started by TRA, Apr 28, 2010.

  1. Hi again people,

    This place is great for information, but sometime a picture tells a 1000 words, so a video with 60 frames a second can only be better!! Is there any good suggestions for technique DVD's out there? That way us noobs can watch then come here and ask a million questions about the bits we don't understand.



    Cheers,

    Andy.

  11. Ride like a Pro V, very newbie friendly material, explained fairly easy. The actors... well, just bear with them and focus on the classes itself.

  12. I have both "Ride Like A Pro V" (Jerry Palladino's vid that focuses on 3 motor officers techniques) and "A Twist of the Wrist II" (Keith Code).

    To be honest I think TOTW2 is a bit too advanced for new riders just starting out, eg. L plates.
    There's some good info but the speeds that they're doing around a race track to illustrate examples & hanging off bikes etc is not something I'd see a new rider anywhere near ready for. Looking ahead from once they've got the basics down and are ready to step up, sure.

    RLAP is more suitable for very new riders outlining simply, and straight to the point, basic and necessary skills with many practical exercises that new riders can easily do in carpark and apply on the road to increase control and competency.

    Guess it depends on what you mean by "new' ...
