Back To Biking

So, are you thinking about jumping back on to two wheels? How long has it been - four months - four years - fourteen years or more!? You know that you survived and enjoyed the challenges, thrills and freedom of biking then, and would love to rekindle that burn of life. Do you wonder just how different riding on two wheels can possibly be from the last time you twisted that throttle? 

Well there's good news, and not so good news.

The good news:

Some things have not changed, we are still riding on two wheels, some of us on three. There are still only two major aspects of motorcycling:

  1. the physical (as in presence, power, elements),

  2. the mental,

together they produce your outcome as a rider.

The not so good news:

There has been a considerable increase in the number of "cars" using the roads and a significant increase in the number of "motorcycles" also using the roads. However the number and condition of our roads has not increased to the same extent to accommodate this additional burden. The majority of roads in this country are of old design and not user friendly for today's motoring requirements. The odds of having an accident involving other vehicles are increasing dramatically each year, therefore as a motorcyclist you have to think beyond the skills you passed your test with, or the skills you have fallen into the habit of using.

Think about it ... you have the answer ... that's why you are still reading this page!

The chances are you have a fairly positive attitude to life and value your safety and wellbeing. The next step is to assess and improve both "the physical" and "the mental" aspects of your driving to make you a safer and more focussed rider.

We hope the following list of our "back to biking" courses and tours is of interest to you.

Keep upright.

Now ... think about this ...

After passing their bike test, most motorcyclists don't develop new skills, they simply become complacent and confident in the lower-end skills they were trained in to pass their test. This makes them a more confident biker but not a safer and better biker. Does this apply to anyone you know?
