From Ruan Croeser, Namibia

First and foremost, I would like to express my appreciation for the invaluable information you’ve made available on your website for riders everywhere. I’m convinced that it has saved countless lives. I’m writing from Windhoek, Namibia (that country in southern Africa where Angelina Jolie had her baby). Over here there is no such thing as compulsory motorcycle training before being able to legally ride the streets. One generally has to rely on a few pages relating to motorcycles in the Learner Driver’s Manual and on conflicting “tips” and advice from other bikers. Obtaining a motorcycle license here requires only the most basic of riding skills. With the closest proper riding school being over a thousand kilometres away (in South Africa) it is needless to say how desperately I needed proper guidance. I was like a kid in a candy shop when I came across your website. It opened up an entirely new world of riding to me. It introduced me to the correct frame of mind and gave me the criteria according to which I could measure and improve my skills. I’m currently 25 years old and only started riding slightly over a year ago. I started off with a 2000 model Suzuki SV650S and recently bought a 2006 model Suzuki GSXR750. Your website serves as a constant reference to develop my skill in order to become a better, and more importantly, a safer rider.
