Just a quick word to say thank you very much for all the effort and organisation you and your team gave to us today on the course. Definately worth the admission fee hehe, you should charge more!! especially as everyone gives their time free. Learnt so much, so thanks again.

just wanted to thank you and the team for the course yesterday, it was enjoyable and picked the always useful information – specially as we are not old bikers,  older yes, but not old to biking.….. It’s just keeping it all there. Lol. We both felt the course was very good, I was probably more interested in the cornering and overtaking, but having said that it does also help to know what happens to the bike when you do certain things, so it was all extra information that I didn’t know.  Bill felt the same really, so sorry can’t give you any constructive criticism. Thank you all very much – a very nice day.

I just want to add my thanks for all the organisation that must have gone into this. I have had an amazing weekend. I have learned a lot and feel my riding has improved, which has also boosted my confidence as well.
