Our Advanced Motorcycle Training Workshop to Normandy April 2011 Part 1

Well all that planning way back in October 2010, booking the accommodation and ferry seems so far away now.  We have just returned from a very successful long weekend in Normandy France, having done the Advanced Training Weekend.  Here we are in April 2010....

 We were a group of 7 motorcyclists, which included myself as one instructor and my mate Dave as the other instructor.  Enroute to Portsmouth we picked up a rider from the West Midlands, Hereford and Tewkesbury.  The other two riders from Weymouth had caught an earlier ferry are we were meeting up with them at our bed and breakfast, later that evening.
We arrived in Cherbourg after an uneventful, smooth crossing at 1900 hours local time, so we were looking at getting to the bed and breakfast by 20.30hrs.  An easy ride, mostly dual carriageway, heading east to Arronmaches Les Bains and our hosts at Normandy Beech - Normandy Beech - Adrian, Karen and Adrienne
All the motorcycles parked in the secure yard for the night, time for a light snack and planning for the next day.  It was like a reunion as 3 of the riders had been on the Workshop in April 2010, but had come back, willing and wanting to learn more.
Part 2 to follow:
