New Website launched and designed by me Dave Prout and May well be of interest to our biking community and returning bikers.
I often get asked why people do‚ or don’t‚ take some bike training‚ coaching‚ instruction – whatever you would choose to call it.
It is a bit odd isn’t it that bikers (and I’ve been there too!)‚ will spend up £10K or more on a bike plus further £thousands on helmets‚ boots‚ leathers‚ gloves etc before we even get onto bits for the bike such as exhausts‚ performance upgrades etc etc.
And yet they don’t spend a single penny on themselves.
Haven’t I just contradicted myself?! Not really‚ what I mean is that the bike‚ the gear and the bits are great but it needs the person sat on the bike to get the most from those purchases.
If the rider is lacking confidence‚ belief and skills then all that gear will not make them a better rider‚ a smarter rider or a safer rider. In fact it might even give them a false sense of belief or security in their true abilities.
Why not spend a couple of hundred pounds on some 1:1 coaching?
Isn’t that a massive return on a small investment?
Every customer I’ve had has ridden off at the end of the session as a safer and wiser rider.
What value do you put on that?!
Twelve bikers enjoy a Fab day riding. Thanks to Graham and Julie for navigating the route‚ and a thank you to Chris for looking after us on tail end. Joined later by Tim as we passed Callington. A big welcome to Donna and Matey who came out with us for the first time‚ hopefully there not put off by all the High end establishments we eat at today where the starting price for coffee was £5 per cup‚ We did have a word with Graham to lower his expectation of what to expect at a coffee stop.. Check out the picture for shots of both Rob and Chris showing off their new motorbikes. All in all a great day‚ made better by the good company of the folk in the picture above. The route for the day was Saltash‚ Callington‚ Bray Shop‚ Five Lanes‚ Camelford‚ Wadebridge‚ breakfast at Strong Adolfos just past the Royal Corwall show ground on the A39.
Padstow‚ Newquay‚ Charlestown for lunch. Par‚ Pelynt‚ Looe‚ Whitsand Bay for a cup of tea and a slice of cake for Dave over the Torpoint ferry and on homewards. See you in Two weeks on the 28th May.

The weather seems to have returned so lets hope we have many more great dry biker days like this.
Hope all behaved this week.
Welcome to the fella at the back‚ good to see Ron back out for a run‚ and hope to see some more of the regulars once they get over the flu and point to point duties.
A the sunshine came back to Plymouth and the bikers made the most of it. Mothers day of course‚ and the change in our daylight as the clocks moved forward an hour. So a great crowd of bikers turned out for Grahams ride out‚ he and Julie did a wonderful job of taking us on a good 150mile route described in previous post‚ but duly noted it would be good next time if he turned up at some of the designated stops 🙂 so of course he needed a ribbing.
Oh and on the topic of ribbing Jan‚ yes Jan thats Rogers wife decided she didn’t want to pay for her latte at one of the stops so thats us banned from there probably 🙂
Overall apart from a few trouble makers noted above the day was great‚ good to get on the bike feel the dry roads and sunshine on our faces‚ good to be getting the corners just right then accelerating out of them‚ good to catch up and have a natter with some of the crew‚ good to see Brian and Phillipa meet us at the last stop for a chat‚ and good to meet some new fellas Tim & Matt.
So can’t wait until our next meet up in two weeks.
