Hi to one and all!!

Post by Claretmac » Sat Jun 08, 2019 1:27 pm

Hello fellow riders, new to the forum, current location near Durham, not from there originally! Almost 35, been riding a little over 2 years, first bike was ninja ZX6R J1 (not ideal first bike!) Decided to change and got an MT07 around 6 months ago and feel much better on it! Current issues though are confidence to lean the bike and cornering speed! Recently done a bike safe which has slightly improved this, looking at finding some twisties near me and working on this! Also looking into advanced riding in the near future! That's all from me and speak soon, ride safe!

Hi there!Image

The advanced riding idea is a must. I know people who've done it and rate it very highly.

Hi mate,

As it happens I was just looking at the Ron Haslam riding school today which is conducted at donington race circuit and they also provide bike and all the gear!

I am also sorting out advanced riding course and managed to have it offered with £50 off!!

I did the IAM course through a local club several years ago - well worth the time and effort.
Lots of others to choose from incl. those already suggested - worth it to do this I assure you.
