Course Description

It may be your ambition to ride a 600cc sports bike or are you better suited to a bigger tourer like a TDM 850 or you could go the whole hog and buy an R1 as your first bike. The choice is seemingly endless and that's where the confusion begins!Different people tell you different things, but you won't know until you try. Ask any established rider and many will confess to feeling a little nervous about buying their first bike based on magazine articles or friends' recommendations. Too many peolpe have paid good money for what they thought would suit them, only to find the bike uncomfortable or difficult to get on with. People often waste money on buying a 500cc when they would be better suited to a 600 or 750 or 1000cc bike. Many riders also, after several years and great expense, find that they would have been better off with a V-twin engine rather than a parallel twin or inline four cylinder machine from the outset. Sometimes riders buy a bike that is far beyond their capabilities and can end up in real trouble! We know how difficult it is to buy the right motorcycle when you have limited experience of what each machine has to offer and unfortunately the majority of bike dealerships will not give you the opportunity to test ride any bikes if you have had your licence for less than 12 months. The solution is to spend a day with us trying out different styles of bikes to see which one you are most at ease with, before committing to buy at your local dealership. You can experience the potential of 500cc - 1000cc , in either faired or unfaired, twin or four cylinder configuration. Professional instruction is available throughout the day to help you determine which style of bike is best for you, before you trot off to the showroom with your hard earned cash!Based on this day, you will be able to say, without doubt, which is the best style of bike for you. Only you can make the right choice because you're the only one who knows how it feels!These courses are run every Friday throughout the year.
