Hi Lyndon and Steve.

Thanks very much guys for a brilliant, fulfilling weekend.

The skills I learned in 2 days were fabulous and have immediately been put to use.

I was pretty confident on dirt roads before, but now I am competent and assured – I can now get more fun from my off-road riding and do it in style and safety.

This course is a great investment – for less than the price of a set of fog lamps on my Triumph XC, I have learnt skills that will likely save me much more:
One avoided low-speed spill, and I am already way ahead……

Thanks for a great weekend!


Hi Lyndon,

I’m just writing to thank you for the training – it was an eye opener! I’ve improved my dirt riding skills heaps on and it’s helped me build back my confidence back after the crash.

In a couple of days I’m off to Victoria to do the Great Ocean Road, but as soon as I’m back I’ll edit the video from the training – I’ve got some good shots!

Thanks again!


Hi Lyndon,

I did the course last weekend and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it and how much I learnt.

As a teacher for many years myself I’ve got to commend you. Your teaching skills are fantastic, with techniques broken down into manageable and easy to understand bits and progressing from basic to advanced. Even though I could only just do the level 1 stuff it has given me something to aim for in my riding. The team of guys you had there were fantastic also, very patient and offering great advice.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to them. My riding improved between day 1 and day 2 and I’ll continue to set time aside to practice the basics as suggested. Looking forward to continuing improvement and I will definitely plan on doing another course with you down the track.

Thanks for a great weekend and for passing on some of the knowledge you have acquired over the years. You certainly managed to teach this old dog a few new tricks



Hi Lyndon & team,

Thank you for your awesome training weekend you held at Al’s in October. I thoroughly enjoyed myself & have learnt lots, which I am already practicing the skills out on the trails.

Just thought you might be interested in having a look at some photo’s that Fred took, which I have posted in the ride reports section of the AMTRA website. We are both members of this club. There are some of your son’s which came out really good, especially of a log hop!

Hi Lyndon,

Sorry for the delay to send you this testimonial; better late than never.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and it boosted my confidence on the road. I have already recommended your course to all my mates.

Good luck in the future.

Cheers Lyndon.


Hi Lyndon,

I hope you and Dean enjoyed your drive home from Merton. This is just a very quick message to say thank you for running a great course over the weekend. I really appreciate the time you took to ensure that we were learning as much as possible, and the benefit that we gain from your skills and experience is invaluable. I will ensure to let all my riding buddies know that they should do your course, and I look forward to doing it again myself in the future. All the best Lyndon. Thanks again for your time.



Hi Guys,

I completed your adventure bike course on the weekend and just wanted to say ‘thank you’ to Steve and Chris for imparting their huge experience and patient teaching style. I picked up heaps of tips which will improve my riding and give me more confidence attacking more challenging trails. The course also crystallized a lot of half-skills I’d sort of figured out thrashing around in the scrub.

Looking forward to doing your sand course slated for April.

Cheers and thanks again.


Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the 2 day cause down at Quart pot recently.It was well worth doing, I have been trying to put to good use some of the things I learnt. Some things need more practice than others.I just noticed you have a 5 day course at Dargle. Might think about doing that.

Thanks again


Hi Lyndon

Thank you so much for the weekend. It was an absolutely awesome two days. We had to cancel last year because I had had a fall and fractured my arm so we’ve been looking forward to this one. I haven’t been riding long and so it was great to learn the techniques from you and your team. Paul and I both thought the course was really professionally run and I will write a review to go on the AMTRA website to say so!

Thanks to Dean, Jack and Steve also. Loved meeting Al and chatting to him too.

All the best,


Lyndon and Dean,

Just a quick email to thank you both for the last two days – Aidan really enjoyed himself, and even more importantly he came away a significantly better rider. We will be back again in September, and I might even dust my old  boots off and join in as well.

Great work gents

Aidan and Richard
