About this title:

Synopsis: This book teaches new riders how to become confident and safe on the road. It's the first book which arms beginners with the knowledge to choose an excellent bike training school, to monitor their own training, and to start riding with a full complement of real-world survival skills. It also covers post-test improvement, the causes of the most common accidents (written by a police accident investigator), and advice on getting back into biking. Whether you are about to do your CBT, have trained on a direct access course, learned over the course of a few months - or if it has been a long time since you have regularly ridden a motorcyle, this book will guide through the techniques and knowledge you need to be a safe and confident rider.

About the Author: Sean Hayes learned to ride in 1991 - only to learn that a fellow student lost a left in a dreadful on-road training accident. When Sean asked his instructor how this could happen, the reply was: 'Well, she obviously couldn't ride, could she?'. Flabbergasted, Sean began talking to new riders to find out how training could be improved. The conclusions were obvious: treat customers with respect, and offer a syllabus which produced a safe, properly-skilled rider. He launched Circuit Based Training at Donington Park in 1997, with the idea of letting people learn in a safe environment before venturing onto public roads. The school has now taught thousands of new and established riders. In 2001 CBT moved to Mallory Park in Leicestershire, where it continues to attract clients from all over the UK and abroad. Rupert Paul started riding in 1978, and immediately developed an unhealthy addiction to unreliable Italian motorcycles. He qualified as a mechanic in 1983, and joined Performance Bikes as a road tester/dogsbody in 1985. In the intervening years he has edited Performance Bikes, Bike, What Bike? and the award-winning MCN Sport, and ridden everything from 1920s flat-tankers to MotoGP bikes. Rupert has long been fascinated by the art of riding a bike well. In 1988 he organised the first public track day, and in the early 1990s grew the concept to a three-day course for 100 PB readers at the fearsome Nurburgring circuit in Germany. He has written many articles on motorcycle control, rider psychology and riding technique. He regularly writes for MCN, Bike, PB and Classic Bike.

Book Description UIT Cambridge, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. More than 50,000 people a year qualify for a full bike licence in the UK, often taking the the plunge to get on a bike only after months of even years of thinking about it. But training in the UK is very hit and miss, with many schools offering instruction which is poor or even dangerous. On top of this, the motorcycle test falls woefully short of what is needed to produce a safe, skilful rider. This book teaches new riders how to become confident and safe on the road. It s the first book to show beginners how to choose an excellent bike training school, to monitor their own training, and to start riding with a full complement of real-world survival skills. It also covers post-test improvement, the causes of the most common accidents (written by a police accident investigator), and advice on getting back into biking after a long break.
