    Exclamation Basic Rider Training and tips

    Not on the forum much, been browsing the posts and there seem to be quite a few peeps who are new to riding or making a return to riding.
    Have had a chat with a few of the experienced riders and an international instructor.
    The plan is to hold an informal session one Saturday afternoon either the 1st or 8th of December.
    We require an open area with a decent road surface, if possible in the Midrand area which is kind of central for most.

    What we will offer;
    Some theory on bike setup and maintenance
    The rest of the afternoon will be spent on practical exercises where we can assess and give pointers on how to improve riding skills.

    So if anyone knows of a venue please post details.
    Those who would like to attend list your names below with the preferred date next to your name. (Majority rules will apply)

    I'm one of those, thank you very much.

    It's a strain this time of year getting things done before the
    holidays. I'd really like this though. I will if I can.

    - rnm (the later the better)

    Why not make a call to the CMA Head Office / Bikers Church Midrand - behind Grand Central, large parking area etc.
    Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.

    Hi all, unfortunately we will have to move this forward to a later date due to personal reasons on my side.
    Will update asap.
    My apologies to all who put their names down
