    Not the most exciting but gives a flavour of the ride which was great fun.

    Loved the video Fatsam, really enjoyed the perspective and the road positioning. Have you done any advanced riding?

    Thanks for your comments. Dave, not done any advanced riding but have read up a bit over the years and understand positioning and vanishing points. It's the only way you can ride unfamiliar roads at reasonable pace and be safe imho. I did the Bikesafe course over in Birkenhead last year. It was fantastic value as you got loads of bumpf and had your riding reviewed by Police and on 2nd day an IAM instructor. They seemed happy enough with my riding.  :002: I'd thoroughly recommend it.

    Thanks Fatsam.

    I am looking at booking the bikesafe course, just waiting for a suitable date to be available. I also went out on the weekend with a RoSPA rider, he was full of great tips and advice, totally Fancy doing some riding with them too.
