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.

I would recommend it to anyone. Every corner is a Look, Lean, Roll corner since I finished the course.

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
