Question Training - recommendations?

Looking for beginner training and possibly an Aon assessment jobbie

Im turning 24 end of the month, so thinking of holding off getting insured till after then. Hopefully it, and the assessment will bring my current quote down Reckon I'll be alright doing the assessment after only a few hours (5-6?) training?

Tried yer man Peter at aaronridertraining - he seemed the mutts nutts, does Aon assessment and learner training, supplied own bike, has a van, etc etc but the dude doesnt reply to my emails/txts, so fook that any other recommendations?

Got training off Peter and would recommend him highly. Wouldn't bother texting/emailing, bet is to keep trying his mobile and you will catch him when he is not on the road.

Our Peter isnt too up on modern technology like text and email, give him a ring, the old fashioned way and he'll sort ye out

I've been going to Darren and Aidan from Bike2Bike and find them both excellent instructors. They give 15% biker.ie discount too as arranged through Skippy. You can get them on 087 2947272.

Cool, thanks lads. Ill keep at Peter then, give him to the end of the week to pick up the phone, then take a look at some of these other guys

oh, question actually.. while alot of these guys provide bikes (phew), do you have to have your own gear? jacket/lid etc?

i went through the MSA Ireland crowd - excellent instructors, not cheap, have their own bikes - you gotta have your own gear though.
