I have it on good authority that Vic Roads are "anti Rider Training/Education". Their reasoning is that training riders will cause people to ride more often and hence increase "exposure" which will lead to more accidents. What is your view? Are they right or wrong? How important is Rider Training? More importantly - what format should Rider Training really take? Vic Roads prevailing view that I think they base their assumption on is that training riders in cornering techniques etc is the basis of the problem, that may create overconfident riders. If you have attended a Rider Training couse, what has been your experience since having completed that course? At what point in your riding career did you complete the course? How may spills have you had before completing a Rider Traing course vs after completing a course? If you have never competed a Rider Training course - tell us about your experiences to date and when, if ever, you have had any "offs".
