Ride safer in the Yarra Ranges
Yarra Ranges instructed motorcycle ride

Yarra Ranges Council and Honda Australia Rider Training are again conducting instructor-led motorcycle training around the Yarra Ranges. The objective of these day-long rides is to familiarise riders with the special challenges of the regions roads, including mobile black-spots, tricky roads where extra care is needed, and how to ride safely in unfavourable conditions.

With this training under your belt, you can concentrate on enjoying the beautiful surroundings and know that you can ride to suit the unique conditions in the area.

A ride around the Toolangi area will take place on Sunday 12 April 2015, and is designed for learner riders, returning riders or anyone wanting to enhance their skills. Riders will meet at and return to Yarra Ranges Council Office in Lilydale. Bookings are essential - contact Millie Thomas, Community Safety Officer, Yarra Ranges Council, on 1300 368 333.

Your Comment
Hello Anita, these are interesting heads'-up pieces. Be great to do all the rides you have mentioned. My bike is no good on those tight windy roads but just lovely on the open roads so I guess I'll have to stick to the highways. Regards, Tony

A great idea from Yarra Ranges Council, and it would be an enjoyable day out as well as learning valuable new skills.

On closer inspection, I found that the HART indemnity form was too extreme for my liking - in essence, your bike could be damaged or you could be injured or even killed as a result of a HART official or representative, accidentally or even through NEGLIGENCE (!!!), and you are asked to agree to them not being liable. No thanks!

The HART indemnity form I received recently for download, in case people are interested:

Specifically, refer to:
- 2nd paragaph under "Agreement", page 1
- paragraph at top of page 2
