BENDS BASICSA brand-new for 2011 half-day course exploring core advanced cornering technique, eg: positioning for view and for safety, planning a line round a bend, dealing with tightening corners, countersteering, and throttle control. I've been running them now for some months for Kent & Sussex Bikers forum and have received very positive feedback.
These are "starter" sessions looking at the basics of advanced cornering technique, including positioning for view and for safety, how to plan your line round a bend, how to avoid being surprised by a tightening corner, countersteering, and throttle control. In short, it covers everything that a basic rider course like Direct Access usually leaves out through lack of time.
If you've never done any post-test training, then these sessions are perfect. They won't push you too hard, but they will give you a confidence booster.
They are a perfect way to follow up a "Bikesafe" assessment with some better cornering technique, to give you a chance to run through the annual "Better Cornering" articles that appear in the bike press, or to get some help with preparing for your advanced bike test, all with an experienced BTEC-qualified / DSA-approved instructor!
All for a recession-busting £60. Drop us a line and book one now!
