well I guess like many of us with many years in the saddle we might think we are safe enough. So last Christmas I promised my self that by 2013 Xams I would have begged the RoSPA adv Bike test. so a short while ago I did just that.
had three session of advance rider assessment with Ger McCarthy www.kerrybikingschool.com
and then went to develop a range of skills and abilities. with particular attention to Hazard Perception. Then in November I went to Templemore and Senior Garda examiner John Keating, who explained exactly what was expected and then put me through my paces. I am pleased to say passed with confidence but would not have without the training that's a given. Great news joined the prestigious RoSPA Advance rider register and a member of http://www.roadar.org
as added bonus Carole Nash insurance discounted my premium because of the "reduce risk" with RoSPA riders
