I Highly Recommend this.
I attended a BikeSafe day at Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service at Winnal in Winchester ran by Hampshire Police on 22 September 2013.
#1. I wanted to know more about BikeSafe as since 2011 when talking with other bikers who do not yet want involvement with any motorcycle club. I have recommended BikeSafe as it “bridges the gap” and gives information to help biker help themselves in riding safety.
#2. I would also welcome all advice on my own riding to help me be a better biker.
As this was a 1-day event, it was split into two, morning theory and remainder road practice, we were advised from the beginning when we go on the road, it is not an assessment but observation to help you, this is true.
BikeSafe does “Bridge the Gap” and is well worth doing if you feel you do not as yet want to get involved with a Motorcycle Club, however if you would like to take your riding further, it was mention that a chap from the Solent Advanced Motorcyclist could be at the finish (Loomies) with a clipboard to sign you up to the IAM but do not feel obligated as it up to you.
A great day and well worth it as knowledge is invaluable and better still when put into practice. BikeSafe is a police-led motorcycle project that is run by most Police forces throughout the UK.
My advice of BikeSafe, go on it do the 1 or 2-day course as the information given out by professional Police Riders could help save your life!
