Some Date Changes

Hi Chums,  As the summer draws to its dripping wet end, its not quite time to put your bike away.

I just want to give you an up date about the North Wales Trip that was advertised on the last Blog Post.  Due to unforseen circumstances we have to change the date for the trip.  I apologise to those who have already put your name down for the trip.

It is now proposed to run the trip on the weekend of the Friday the 7th of October – Sunday the 9th. ( I promise it will be Sunny that weekend…….. I had my fingers crossed when I typed that…)

I hope those that are on the list are still able to come, and hopefully these dates may also allow others time to get their names added.  The trip is limited to 10 bikes and there were a few spaces left.

We are still very busy with the learner training and we are also planing more of the one day topic courses.  Courses to come will be, Overtaking and for those who have just passed a test with us, we will be running ‘Pillion Passenger’ 1 day courses, to name just two.

With regards to the planned Four Day Advanced Course, it may be necessary to re-schedule the start date.  This is due to juggling the duties of my instructors.  I am very pleased to welcome back Jeff Johnson who has trained with us for quite some time but has been busy with the Bikesafe Scheme.

Jeff is a fellow RoSPA Examiner for the Advanced Motorcycle Test and he will be doing CBT, Direct Access and Advanced Training for us.  Jeff is still a serving Traffic Cop so is well able to help you get the best from your bike, before it gets the better of you. He will also be examining the candidates from the Advanced Courses that we run.

As soon as his availability is confirmed hopefully we will be able to re-start the Monthly Rideouts and still deal with the high demand for cbt’s.

So please be patient with me for the time being whilst it is more work than play…

If you didn’t before, do it now.  Get your name on the list for the North Wales Trip.

We have set up a page on facebook for other biker news so log on and join us.  Just open facebook and search ‘1st Class Rider Training’

Come on……. you know you want to………
