I would like to thank the staff and especially Dave Bowen at the Academy Of Motorcycling, for teaching an old dog new tricks.
Having not ridden a bike for 30 years, I arrived for my CBT realising I knew nothing except how to change gear (badly). and point a bike where I wanted to go.
The Academy got me through my CBT and DAS, in the space of 7 days. passing my module one and two at the first attempt. I found the instruction to be intensive yet enjoyable, and the attitude of the instructors showed a desire to get the students through the tests but to also give a level of instruction that would give the student a level of ability to ride safely and competently on the road post test.
So thanks Dave, brilliant job getting me on my dream bike and a wealth of knowledge that will ensure I can stay on the said bike safely.
