Next Ride Out….Not a Ride Out at all!

Biker Warning, French Style. And what a Route it was!

Now with the second Sunday of the Month approaching this should be the time that I tell you about the next Ride Out……. But

With the motorcycle test due to change at the end of September the training school is flat out and we are fully booked until October.

This Sunday the DSA are holding a Training School Open Day at the New Multi Purpose Test at Newport. They will be demonstrating the new test procedures to the trainers so I need to attend.

I’m not going to see the new procedures but simply to drop into conversation with the other training schools that we have a 100 % pass rate since last December.

Thinking you’re good is one thing…. but knowing you’re good is much better.

So congratulations to our Senior Instructor….. the untouchable Tyrone.

But what this means is that there will not be a Ride Out this weekend. It would be pretty boring for you all stood peering through the fence at the test centre while we all do some Country Dancing on our bikes with the DSA examiners.

But rest assured. Don’t worry about us……. we will manage to fit in a Big Breakfast somewhere, and maybe a visit (or two) to A ‘Golden Arches’ for a coffee.

Cheers Chums.
