Feedback from Damian Cranny - La Mare Palu

“Nigel used our bed and breakfast for an Advanced Training trip in Normandy. In total there were five attendees on the course. The most telling and reliable accolade to Nigel's skills in training, team management and personal attention was the candid talk at the breakfast table when he was absent form the room. Each and every one of the trainees could not sing his praises enough from his driving skills to the way that he boosted their confidence whilst helping them to drop bad habits and adopt new skills that that only improved their riding but made the riding experience all the more pleasurable for them. Having entrusted their time and money to attend the course they were all eager to rebook.” October 13, 2009

Youtube damagedron meets advancedbiker

Normandy in the rain with a Honda ST 1300 Pan European

Feedback from Rider

Bringing the speed down a few mph allowed me to asses the bend before entering it in the right gear and position.Looking past the curve to the next bend combined with steady throttle control allowed me to feel in control and made it smoother.I was comfortable with the speed on twisty bends in the wet.The road structure,weather, group and mostly great tuition I got months of experience condensed into days.Had a great time with a good bunch of lads so put me down for the next trip!Thanks again.

My Training History - Advancedbiker - Youtube

I have been sorting out my old paperwork and found my training history when I was in the Police Force.

Here goes;

Before I could even drive a Police Car, called Pandas in those days I did a 5 week course in 1978. The courses were graded and I was lucky to get a high grade 3, so I could straight onto an Advanced course later. In 1980 I started my career on the Traffic Division and in January I did a 3 week standard motorcycle course; In july I did a 4 week Advanced Car course. (No speed limits - No speed cameras) Still on traffic in June 1982 I did a 3 week intermediate motorcycle course (BMW 800's but sticking to speed limits). In 1983 a few more driving courses - February for 3 weeks an Advanced motorcycle course (No speed limits - Speed cameraas etc...); July 1983 an Advanced car refresher another 2 weeks, where I obtained a grade 1. Then the instructor courses, both 6 weeks duration; a good year 1987.....February the car instructors course and then in September the Motorcycle Instructors course.
So in total Car courses: 15 weeks
Motorcycle courses: 15 weeks
