Just a quick note to say a huge thank you to you and all the observers for a really great day today at the ABC course. I have taken a lot away from the course and look forward to continuing practicing the manoeuvres All courses I have attended with TVAM have been so well organised and managed to get the best from all attendees and this was no exception, a real testament to the organisers and assistants Once again Chris many thanks    
Mark WashbournAdvanced Braking Course (ABC) July 2014

All in all a fantastic way to get to know the bike, and to receive some excellent feedback and encouragement.  The counter-steering ‘workshop’ was very useful, and definitely a good starting point.  I was also very impressed with the way the course was laid out for the practice bends.  A nice mix of tight and sweeping bends, and at no point did I feel over-crowded on the track, despite the fact that it must be tempting to accept a larger number of people as you must get a lot of people who want to attend. If there is one negative point I could volunteer, it’s that half a day is not enough – just as I was beginning to grasp the concept of counter steering and applying it to the course, it was all over!  I can , however, appreciate that the volunteers probably would like some free hours in their weekend, so it’s just a minor point! Thanks again!
