GETTING STARTED

LEARN TO RIDE

The first step in obtaining your Motorcycle learners licence is knowing how to ride the bike :)

No experience? No problem!
The Two Bald Bikers will patiently take you through your first experience on the bike and make sure you get it right from the get go.

This is a three hour course and will only cost you $150 including bike hire. Want to know more? contact us

BASIC HANDLING SKILLS

A must do if you wish to gain a motorcycle licence. We limit numbers to a maximum of FOUR students per instructor to ensure that you get the personalised training and coaching you deserve. No time in the weekend? No problem, we are happy to run a course in the evenings during the week. We believe our BHS course is the most cost effective you will find in Wellington, our course fee of $190 includes bike hire, assessment fee and hot and cold drinks (concentration suffers if you become dehydrated) Even better, if you have booked onto both the Learn to Ride and Basic Handling courses we will provide lunch as well!

The Two Bald Bikers

Experienced Rider Health Check

Let's be honest, after riding for a while we can all pick up some bad habits, and the good ones can slip a bit. We all spend money on our bikes, on our gear, on (hugely overpriced) Registration. Why not spend a little on you. Don't think you are riding the best you can, KNOW you are :) Want to know more?

About Us

Ross Gratton

I am a father, a husband, a son, a brother. I am a motorcyclist, and I love it ☺ I am committed to providing you with the most valuable training and the most pleasant experience possible. Riding a motorcycle is not inherently dangerous, sword swallowing is inherently dangerous, relieving yourself on an electric fence is inherently dangerous, motorcycling is just incredibly unforgiving. Unfortunately we see the results of the unforgiving nature of our passion splashed across the media far too often. Let’s be honest, it is all too easy to sit on the side lines and complain about things, that is not what I’m about, I want to be the change I wish to see in the world.

Stuart Nelson


I am like you an avid motorcyclist and have been for the past 43yrs. I love to ride, and equally as much I love to be able to share the knowledge of my riding attained over that time, whether you have been riding for many years, a couple of years, or if you are just at the beginning of your riding career. I have gained many skills over the years, not always in the best fashion, having adjusted and learned best practice on how to do something, wish passionately to share them with you my fellow riders.



What we are about



We know the value of the journey we have been on so really the only proactive choice was to study and qualify as NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) approved instructors and pay the learning forward. So here we are, our only motivation is to see motorcyclists having more fun, being confident and being safer on the roads, we want to make a difference. We know that we will not get rich doing this, but that’s not really the point is it? With over 65 years of combined riding experience we know we can help you. “God only made so many perfect heads..... The rest He covered in hair”
