I have been riding bikes since the 1970s and still ride a Suzuki GT750 to remind me how much they have improved! I did my IAM advanced test in 2010 and quickly moved on to observing which I find very rewarding. Currently, I am a national observer with MBEAM, an observer with ROSPA and an assessor for Blood bikes who I also ride for. I enjoy the variation in riding experience that different bikes offer and might be riding a two-stroke sports bike on one day and Pan European tourer the next. It’s all good.
