I am very much a novice biker although am keen to gain as much information, as I can in order to progress. I found this course very helpful, in particular the principles of overtaking and steering through corners. I have done LLR but this review built on that learning and understanding. I got a bit lost on the physics bit but still all good learning! Many thanks to you and your colleagues for an enjoyable day.

Thanks to you and all of the team for organising and presenting the day – it’s obvious that a mass of work has gone into the preparation. Overall, a very worthwhile event that kept me engaged for the whole day. All club members can benefit from this – associates, full members & observers. The interactive style and discussion generated was great. I found Howie’s stuff on visual perception really interesting & a useful insight into possible reasons for other road user’s behaviour. I also enjoyed the discussions around videos and photos of riding situations. The stuff on bike mechanics was very good and thought provoking too – I’ve now looked up my wheelbase & trail dimensions! I think it’s quite right for this course to concentrate on what all this means to us as riders, rather than dwelling too much on the maths.

Thanks for organising the Castle Combe day – I had a great time and have now used all the tread width on my rear tyre – even at 68 there is a first time for some things. Also please pass on my thanks to the track guides who did a great job leading sessions and giving one to one advice.  Although I was apprehensive as this was my first track day, all that disappeared once I had been led around on the first lap and after that it was all smiles as you predicted.  I have now pushed my new CBF much harder  after 1100 miles than I ever did the old one in 56,000 miles and understand a bit more of her capabilities.
