    Surviving bad crashes

    Thread Starter: riffer

    I don't post on here as often as I used to. The rise of social media has a lot to do with that, but also I've been a bit away from motorcycling. Two years ago today I slammed into the side of a Nissan Navara at a speed between 60 and 80 km/h when its driver pulled out of a driveway into the path...

    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save jellywrestler doing it. So Alex Marquez is now confirmed as Marc's team mate at Repsol Honda. It will be interesting to see how he goes in the first tests later today as he hasn't really set the other classes alight like his older brother...

    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
