Mary and Danny Holmes
Mary came to us to pass her bike test and soon persuaded husband Danny to do the same. They came back not long afterwards and did some advanced training. They went on to pass the IAM test and then the RoSPA advanced test to a Gold standard. Mary sent me a message when she passed: "Your training made a very solid foundation for everything that followed. Danny and I will be back for some more advanced training at some point."
There was a look of astonishment on Eamonn's face each time I told him something about his riding that had never previously occurred to him!
He was amazed that he had got away with riding for five years without understanding some of the fundamentals of how a bike steers.
At the end of his three hour session his parting words were, "I'll definitely be back for more."
Gordon Stuart, "The Arctic Rider"
You may have seen press coverage of Gordon's fund raising trip to the Arctic Circle.
Newcastle Rider Training was one of his main sponsors and I gave him some advanced riding tips to help keep him safe on his journey.
Gordon said, "Fantastic advanced motorcycle tuition preparing me for my 6,000 mile ride to Norway. I've been riding nine years and I learned a great deal on my day with Neil. Can't recommend them highly enough - this stuff can save your life!"
Last year Gordon set himself a new fund-raiser: the Iron Butt Challenge. He rode the UK from end to end in 18 hours for charity. His next challenge is going to be a 2,000 mile ride through Alaska. Check out his blog at http://arcticride.blogspot.co.uk/
Stephen used to ride a CB400 back in the day but had been away from biking for a few years and his wife bought him some refresher training for Christmas. He came on a sensible Honda NC750 which was ideal for getting back into it.
With confidence regained however, it wasn't long before a bit more excitement was required and he stepped up to this Yamaha FZ800 which he proudly brought to show us a few months later.
These session lengths are not set in stone - they are just what I normally offer. So, for example, if you want two hours or four then just ask!
