National Observer, Group Secretary, Webmaster
I rode bikes from 16 to my mid-thirties and then had a gap until a few years ago. I passed my test on a Suzuki TS125X and also rode among others a Honda CB250RS, a Kawasaki GPZ750 Turbo and a Yamaha FZ600. The most unusual I bike rode was a Honda CBR400RR that had been fitted with a CBR600F engine by a mate who was a mechanic for Honda Racing. I came back to biking a few years ago and bought a BMW R1200RS and I now ride a KTM 1290 Super Adventure S.
I passed my IAM Advanced Rider with a F1rst in 2017 and became an Observer in 2019 and a National Observer in 2021. In 2017 I also started riding for North West Blood Bikes, Lakes and Lancs for whom I am now also a rider assessor.
As things were slow due to Covid-19 I also decided to take the RoSPA test and gained a Gold and I am now also an Advanced Group Tutor and training manager for the local group.
