Its just that.

That's all it is.

It worthwhile, but the onus is always going to be on YOU.

Go. Do it. But listen and hear with an educated mind and don't let the grinning green badgers have you.

Alléz.

Ten years? Mine was '88, y'newbie!

And I'm sure there'll be a real old fart along to top that!

I think anyone who believes that ownership of a badge of some sort confers "special powers" is living in a dream world.

Surely you're mistaken? My green badge obviously makes me the best rider in the world, invincible, immortal and of course willing to take anyone on... where else could I have obtained these special powers

Im a member of the IAM, currently got the car badge and studying for the bike badge.... I don't believe it gives me any super powers but I do know that it has taught me how to ride better and it has a good social life along with it!

It were in't olden days, when TVAM wasn't even a twinkle in its founders eyes . . .

Basingstoke Advanced Motorists, from which the bikers split to become - surprisingly - Basingstoke Advanced Motorcyclists.

you may be familiar with a charecter named Robin Crane then?

one of my very good mates, a track racer and ex-despatcher, is currently under his watchfull eye at the mo.

RC is a top rider.. had the pleasure to watch him, 2-up, on an observer only rideout last winter..... impressive stuff.

Did my ACU Gold Star thingy at 22 if that counts for owt?

Bronze was similar to the current CBT, Silver was preparation for the, then very new, two part test, Gold was pretty much roadcraft.

Spin tells me they went bust due to problems with the parent group, pity really as the trainers I had were all fairly open minded.

Would have been the Star Rider Gold, but yup, learnt more in that course than any other until the MSF.

My three year old niece's tricycle is sporting a shiny green badge. I'm going to feel awful if she falls off through overconfidence and grazes her knee.
