Feedback from an Advanced Assessment Course 26.8.08

Nigel,

I’m just writing to say how much I enjoyed the day’s training with you.

I am really pleased with how much your expert help and advice has improved my riding. I am sure that your course would be of benefit to anyone looking to improve their riding skills and survival on the bike.

You made me feel completely at ease, not an easy task. The regular debriefs throughout the day were really beneficial as they helped clarify the things you had shown on the road. It was also useful to follow you on your own machine as this allowed me to follow the line of the bends and see where I should position myself to gain the best view in whole variety of hazards.

I was impressed by your own observation of the situations and hazards which you relayed to me as we progressed. It was like training to be a Jedi biker under the tutelage of Master Yoda. I am still amazed at just how far you look when assessing the road.

I hope to be able to come back again in 2009 for 2 or 3 days.

I know we discussed the costs and whilst they may appear expensive, I believe when you consider the options of not training with an advanced instructor like yourself, the cost is actually worth it. The benefits in terms of improved survivability far outweigh the money spent. I believe the capital outlay for the course should not be the deciding factor. I would urge anyone who is strapped for cash to sell their kidneys or the mother in law’s body to science, or rob a bank to get the money.

I would be happy to talk to anyone about how good the course is should they wish to contact me personally.

Anyway may the force be with you.

I look forward to seeing you next year.


Kind regards

Charlie Poxon

PS. Thanks for all the free videos you put on YouTube, they are superb!
