If so then you are right about the site being misleading. Very much so.

But I don't understand why you'd need full protective gear for a static rig.
I doubt the lady in the picture likes to be called a "static rig" but if I were riding her I would opt for some protection.

The bike used for level 1 is the same as the bike in picture 2.

Well, if that's the case, then fair enough.

They seem like a smart way to get a feel for the basics of a wheelie.

It is still a bit on the pricey side, for (poor) me anyway.

But having said that, the day I try it on my own bike is the day before I'm searching eBay for cheap replacement parts.

Let me know when the club discount is sorted and I'll be first in line.

Don't forget the 600 or 1200 charge if you damage anything on the bike.

Oh, I'm not.

Or the fact that neither the organiser or the premises is liable in any circumstance, even a death which can be attributed to negligence. Which is handy.

But I'm sure similar clauses can be found in every waiver related to a motorsport/"dangerous" pursuit.

It's best not to dwell on these things.
