Video Resources For New Riders

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' at netrider.net.au started by Shibboleth, Oct 30, 2012.

  1. There’s a lot of fantastic stickies in the New Rider’s section of Netrider. Most people, however, are visual learners, and have trouble learning from reading words on a page. There is approximately umpty-billion motorcycle videos on YouTube. Here’s some that I found useful in my (continuing) learnings on motorbike riding.

    Many of these links I've got from right here in the New Rider's forum. I've aggregated them here as a easy reference point. Thanks to all those who've suggested these great videos.

    If anyone has any other videos they'd like added to this list, or some videos changed to better ones, please PM me.

  2. Okay, that's annoying. Half the videos are showing up as media links, the other half are regular hyperlinks. How do you set the posting so that the hyperlinks AREN'T automatically changed to media links?
