    Hi Tony

    Just wondering how you got onto this ?

     I was thinking about trying to find something like this near me but didn’t know if it existed in France

    Hi there Leadfarmer, glad to see you back here  :152: how’s it going with the GS ?
    Well to answer your question there are quite a few regions that do hold this type of event in France, ours in the Var is normally 2 in the spring and 2 in the Autumn. I went on one last year and was lucky to get on this one 👍 I “liked” the Gendarmes du Var page on FB and they post these meetings about two weeks in advance, leave a phone number and it’s first come first served system, they hold a morning session and an afternoon session with about 15 bikers in each session so as you can imagine the places go very quickly, if I were you find your nearest Gendarmerie and ask if they hold this type of training, here it’s paid for by an assurance company 👍 but I have seen much bigger events that I think are organised by the Gendarmerie
    Good luck,  search on YouTube, journey trajectories Gendarmerie, you will see many on there and there might be one that’s help near you
    Three more videos to come ✌️👍🤣🇬🇧

    Very good Bif. With regard to the final comment about DCT and braking were you not using manual mode then?

    Thanks for the info Tony, I’ll look into it  :028:

    The GS is excellent, the ESA suspension is in another league and the telelever is brilliant too

    Just needs a DCT box now  :305:
