Default Have a free motor cycle ride

http://www.geton.co.uk/

‘Get On’ is brought to you by the leading motorcycle manufacturers, dealers and other companies in the market.

‘Get On’ want to support anyone in getting on two wheels by actively promoting the many positives of motorcycling, and by introducing as many people as possible who have never ridden to a free riding experience, and by encouraging those who have left motorcycling to start again.
‘Get On’ intends to be a place online where anyone who is considering motorcycling can come for independent information and advice from a trusted source, on all things to do with getting on two wheels.


Haven't applied for myself but may be worth some of checking out this - after reading replies am now really tempted.

Good luck.

P.

I'm going to go on this, I ride pillion, but whenever I've mentioned doing my cbt my other-half cringes and reluctantly admitted he didn't think I'm cut out for it!! Ah well, what better way to find out... hehe

This is brilliant DD wants to do her CBT - OH says she'll hate it. I was thinking of the £100 it would cost me for the CBT and what if OH was right?

Put her name down for a session and we'll see who's right.

What you going to ride a bike or a scooter? A scooter's easier, just twist and go but if I did I'd never live it down from the other half and his biker mates!

I think I might be good at this - I've been ringing out invisible towels with no problem



When I first glanced down at campervans reply I thought it was something to do with your previous comment betty - maybe I'd had one too many ..............

My confirmation arrived today and all looks very well organised & a great opportunity.

Good - as shows freebie works but boo hoo, I can't do it because I don't have a current driving licence edit - or a provisional - don't know if this is all centres or just this one's policy (but didn't think was legal requirement?) ..... so just to let you all know it may be a requirement.

Any I how will go ahead and confirm for surprise (shock!!) for sister ..... I was getting so good at ringing out towels too!!!!

Surely you just need to apply for your provisional? I can see why this would be a requirement
