Motorcycle Dexterity & Control Days

(a.k.a. Slow Riding Days)

For every motorcycle spill that makes the local papers, there are many more which never get much publicity. How many of you in your time riding have never struggled to keep your bike upright while manoeuvring in a parking area, or had to take a big dab with either foot while negotiating queues of commuter traffic? Not many (if any).

Very often in these situations the rider grabs a handful of front brake, shortly followed by the resulting sound of expensive plastic and metal making contact with the ground.

Motorcycle Dexterity & Control Days give you the opportunity to practice the art of riding a motorcycle slowly, and to learn the techniques that will help you do it.

The event start at 9.00 AM SHARP usually finishing around 13.00, the venue is the playground of Sidegate Primary School, Sidegate Lane, Ipswich. IP4 4JD

It is strongly recommended before you attend one of SAM’s Dexterity days, you inform your Insurance Company that you intend to practise slow speed machine control in a school playground off road on tarmac, ask them to confirm that you will have full cover for this activity.

Please let National Observer Matthew Barker know you are intending to attend – [email protected]
