Life saver reading

There's "Not the Blue Book", based on the Police manual.  Some good general advice videos as well - "A street, a Track, an Open Road", "Police Advanced Riding Techniques", "Great Roads, Great Rides".  If you buy a new bike, you'll get the first one free.  I got the last one for nowt as well.  If you want these and can't locate them, e-mail me and I'll send you some contact information.

As for life savers, you'll see/read that they have to be used with judgement and if you use your mirrors a lot, there's often no need.  Basically, you need a life saver check over your shoulder when you're about to change direction, to make sure there's nobody coming up behind you who could go into the side of your bike as you turn.  Just remember, though, that whilst you're looking behind, you can't see what's happening in front.

Well done, but...

Well done!  However, to paraphrase Churchill, as far as your training goes, this is not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning (how profound is that?), ie I'm 64 and still learning!
