This testimony is for anyone with “no experience” in riding a motorcycle wanting to learn to ride with Brett Hoskin from Queensland Motorcycle School (Q-Ride) ( NOW LEARN2RIDE)
Firstly let me begin with my initial contact, after seeing an advertisement in the local paper and not knowing anything about who was a good instructor and who may not be, I made an enquiry about learning to ride a motorcycle.
Since I am one of those people who make decisions based on first impressions, I called and explained to Brett that I have never ridden a motorcycle before and asked if he could help?
I thought at 47 I may be too old for this and wondered if he “could he teach an old dog new tricks” He happily replied “no problems let’s set a date for a skills assessment to see how you go, he assured me that he had a distraction free environment to have a ride and a bike that wouldn’t get damaged if I dropped it and to not to worry about a thing. That’s perfect I thought I can’t embarrass myself too much if I make mistakes.
I was now a lot less hesitant, but I was still unsure about me on a motorcycle. I thought if I’m going to do this then I need to make a commitment to listening to Brett’s directions and observations on how I could improve my skill level to become a competent and safe motorcyclist. We arranged a date and time to meet where I went for an observational test ride.
After completing the ride Brett discussed what he observed and he explained the best approach for me to train to gain my Q-Ride competencies. Brett was clear concise with what I needed to learn and recommended a plan to suit my learning needs.
Whilst training Brett offered information and coaching above and beyond what I expected, he displayed an honest professional and personal concern for producing a confident safe motorcycle rider while allowing me to progress at a rate at which I felt comfortable.
As a testament to Brett’s ability to teach, it was only a matter of several short lessons before I gained the confidence, knowledge and ability needed to obtain the Q-Ride competency certificate.
The day I achieved my goal was the best day ever, not only was I feeling confident about my ability to ride safely in traffic and on the open road, but I had fun doing it.
Needless to say doing this was money well spent and an invaluable educational asset which has given me the ability to ride a motorcycle safely and confidently and has even provided me with an advanced awareness for motorcyclists when driving a car.
I hope anyone reading this who maybe unsure or nervous about riding a motorcycle for the first time, will gain from my experience and trust in Brett’s ability to underpin and produce the skills and knowledge needed to become a safe and confident motorcycle rider.
