Thanks for posting this up which will come in handy for people looking for an even easier way to get involved. At a 10,000 ride cap i'm sure they'll influence the riding community.

A great opportunity for anyone considering their first bike. Cant vouch enough for the additional confidence that courses like this provide. Can make all the difference in knowing read and react to other motorists.

Strongly encourage anyone looking to get their license to do one of these accredited courses. It may even save you a bit of money on insurance, which is going to be a premium for a new rider.

sorry to break it to you but those courses do little for your insurance
these companies focus on active risk which has a lot to do with your location thus focus on that if you want lower rates that make a noticable impact.

It will take some shopping around to find the best rates, but as a first time rider expect to see some big numbers. The rates will also be dependent on the CC's of the bike that you choose, so get something realistic for a beginner.

Style of bike should play into it well because there's just no way its fair to charge some guy running some mid-range cruiser as much as the guy with a CBR600R.
Just from observing how those demographics ride and the situations they get into, the CBR600R guy is an incredible risk, odds of being a squid are drastically higher.

It makes the most sense to buy something older as your first bike, because its not a matter of if but when you drop it for the first time. Sure you can invest in frame sliders and protection, but wait on buying that brand new model until you've build up some confidence and familiarity with the riding dynamics.

Sliders can save you at times and from what I realized from observing most new riders its that they don't have patience to let the learning process to run its course.

Have to agree with you on this. Buy something that you wont care about getting scratched and scuffed while you're still learning. Even if you are a quick study, its likely going to be another driver on the road who causes your first spill.
