Motorcycle Dexterity & Control Days (aka Slow Riding)

Postby Mike.J.Roberts » Sat Sep 12, 2009 1:42 pm

ALL FUTURE EVENTS CANCELLED

Following a lot of discussion at the latest Senior Observers meeting revolving around attendance figures, insurance, costs, course structure, timing etc. it was agreed that in future the slow riding techniques and practise would be covered on a one-to-one basis with an Associate’s allocated Observer.

Everyone who attends one (or more) of these events, whatever their previous riding experience, has found them worthwhile.

NB. Please let the Senior Observer (see the SAM Calendar for SO names) running the event you wish to attend, so they can arrange for extra help if required.

Before you attend one of SAM's Dexterity days, you must inform your Insurance Company that you intend to practise slow speed machine control in a school playground accessable to the public and ask them to confirm that you will have full cover for this activity.

ALL Members
PLEASE NOTE
Sadly due to a poor weather forecast for tomorrow’s Dexterity day (23rd March 2013) I have decided to take the precautionary step to cancel. Many apologies to those who had taken the trouble to book in with me in advance.

For your information the next Dexterity Day will be on Sunday 21st April at Sidegate lane Primary school in Ipswich. Contact Karl Hale on xxxxx xxxxxx to book.

Once again sorry for the inconvenience let’s hope Spring gets here soon.

Regards

Derek Barker
