finally put my money where my mouth is, and booked my das with force rider in bolton!
funny thing was i was heading for ACE rider.. and found a better school.
Ace rider was a bag of shit anyway. so im glad.
This guy Andy says hes trained the police the army in hgv cars and bikes...he done diplomatic shit and is an ex police biker. Im sure hes telling the truth.
he didnt have good things to say about ACE, Apparantly theyre not even qualified, so even if Force is more stringent and maybe more difficult to pass it looks like ACE is just a glorified #MOT centre.
I did my CBT with them but the bike was a rustbucket, the gloves were plastic and the helmet stank.
Hopefully i pass mod 1 ok as its 100 quid to retake.
Hes charging me 550 for it all.
So, it seems i was lucky to find this place by chance.
thanks for any encouragement!
