Question Advanced rider training.

Hello all.

Has anyone done the Machine Control 1 course at the i2i Motorcycle Academy at Tockwith, North Yorkshire? (http://www.i2imca.com/page9.htm)

I thinking of booking a place on the course to improve my confidence/skills, is it any good?

Thanks.

TonyS

Default Re: Advanced rider training.

ive not personally been on it, but ive only heard good things about them.


........ last year when i did bike safe with north yorks police, they raved about it, there were a cpl of lads who'd done it and they said it was excellent, they couldnt believe the things that they had them doing on there own bikes......they said it was a massive boost to understanding why a bike does what it does, and what a riders input does to it.......

ive been trying to get on one, but the dates fill up very fast, and theyve just not been good dates for me,
fully intend to do one though, if you go the website and give your details theyll keep you up to date when new courses come out

I did it last year and it was brilliant. I have been riding for years in all weathers and learnt a lot from it. You will be amazed at what you can do on a bike! Really confidence boosting. Instructors really friendly. Work paid for it

@the guys who have done this course ^^

Is it worth going on it if I only passed my (restricted) test less than a month ago? Already looking into getting some more training and better bike handling skills. Hmm

any additional training can only be good, whatever your level of experience.
