A brand-new for 2011 half-day course exploring core advanced cornering technique, eg: positioning for view and for safety, planning a line round a bend, dealing with tightening corners, countersteering, and throttle control.
I've been running them now for some months for Kent & Sussex Bikers forum and have received very positive feedback.
These are "starter" sessions looking at the basics of advanced cornering technique, including positioning for view and for safety, how to plan your line round a bend, how to avoid being surprised by a tightening corner, countersteering, and throttle control.
DDB: “Good course though – I feel vastly more confident about choosing the right line through bends and not getting caught out half-way round…”
Daesimps: “The course was very good and has improved my confidence no end. I’m also far more aware of road positioning when taking junctions/bends.”
In short, it covers everything that a basic rider course like Direct Access usually leaves out through lack of time, so if you're newly qualified this is the course for you to start your learning process to becoming a more complete rider.
If you're more experienced but have never done any post-test training, then these sessions are perfect. They won't push you too hard, but they will give you a confidence booster and they are the perfect way to follow up a "Bikesafe" assessment with some better cornering technique. or to give you a chance to run through the annual "Better Cornering" articles that appear in the bike press.
If you're preparing for your advanced bike test, many riders struggle with adapting to the demands of 'advanced' positioning. This course will show you how to do it - and when NOT to do it.
Train with an experienced BTEC-qualified / DSA-approved instructor and all for a recession-busting £60.
