    CB500X vs. CRF300 Rally for sealed/metal touring

    Thread Starter: Odakyu-sen

    TIPS please?

    Thread Starter: VRODnz

    Hi all - I am scheduled to do my restricted license test tomorrow, after getting my learner in 2006. Any tips or tricks that you have come across when doing yours would be appreciated - I have been riding for a long time but probably picked up a lot of bad habits.

    Hi All,

    The Institute of Advanced Motorists are offering free observed rides or drives to anyone who would like to know more about the IAM and 'Roadcraft' System of vehicle control Based on the UK Police Driving System. This is proven around the world to reduce risk when driving making those who use it safer drivers/riders.

    You can go out with a trained observer for a ride or drive for about an hour and get constructive feedback on ways you may be able to improve your riding or driving. This is informal and not any kind of test!

    Meet us at Hampton Motorcycles at 20 Carmen Road from 9am to 12 noon for a coffee, chat and / or a drive/ride on Saturday 26th January.

    If you want to ensure an observed run then contact us back on this email address canterburyiam@gmail.com asap

    regards
    Duncan Seed
    Chairman IAM Canterbury
