Feedback from video clips on Youtube

Your Channel
To:advancedbiker

Hi,
I'm a 42 year old rider from Cambs, I passed my full test two months ago. I manage to get out a couple of times a week to get some miles on the clock and try to build on what I have learned during my direct access course. I'm currently working through the Motorcycle Roadcraft manual and the videos that you have kindly taken the trouble to upload are a really useful visual resource to help with all the text i'm working through.

I just wanted to write a short note to say a big thank you.

Kind Regards

Rob

Advancedbiker is observed and he passes - Gold Rospa standard

I had a very strange experience yesterday when I  was out advanced motorcycle training.  I was with a mate who was preparing for his Senior Tutor test for RoSPA and we were assessing his riding and assessment skills.  As part of that assessment I would do some demo rides, throwing in various bad habits to see if he got them and after brought them up in the debrief. Well I tried to do a faultless GOLD ride for him, talk about a bit of pressure.  I never usually ride in front as I am always following someone and after one hour we stopped and he gave me a GOLD pass, HOWEVER......  He did raise some issues with my riding which I do and on reflection wonder why I do them now:

Doing a shoulder check to my left after an overtake ! ALWAYS DONE IT - But do I need to do it now if I now whats behind me, I know where the vehicle is I have just overtaken.  Spatial awareness.

The point is, YOU NEVER STOP LEARNING
