Which track/school for the wife?

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' started by jimmythehuman, Sep 30, 2012.

  1. My wife rides dirtbikes, and she does it well. She wants to spend a day on the a road track learning the basics, on their bikes.

    In vicco which is the best option for a ride with small groups, plenty of track time, learn some basic bike skills and get a little speed up?

  2. Not in vic so not too sure but HART are all over.
    I would look more at an adv road course than a track day...but I am thinking she has no road experience in saying that.
    do a google on them
  3. I can recommend a HART Advanced Level 1 course. Was absolutely fantastic, got heaps out of it. Would recommend doing that course before you buy boots/pants, the knowledge is worth more that the armor!
  4. Thanks. I am not she wants to buy the gear and start riding on the road with all of the madness. She just wants to have a safe fun ride day. Be even better if it was an girlie one.
  5. Preston race school is the most economical and quite good,they also have girls only days just not sure about class tuition on the girls only days.Check out preston motorcycle clubs web site.
  6. +1 for the HART Advanced 1. She'll need to ride on the road to get to the training place though. they do it at the police training range (or did when I did it)
    Bernie Hatton is at Broadford on the 22nd, but thats pretty exxy if you use his bike.
    have to work that day **** it
  7. I did the HART Advanced 2 course yesterday and thoroughly recommend it.

    Great fun, and more focussed on riding technique rather than road craft like the Advanced 1 course is (I've done both).
  8. Sure there'll be another along soon..
