Southern Section Winter Talk – Advanced Rider Training

by Jim Bettley

3 March, 2023

Southern Section Members gathered at Rake Village Hall on a bright but chilly day to be entertained and informed by Roger Jackaman.    Before Roger got underway there was a minute’s silence for John Shill, a section member who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly a few days before.

With Roger’s solid background as a police traffic motorcyclist and as a trainer for the Honda Mac scheme, as well as experience with IAM and RoSPA, it was a real chance to review and refresh the thought processes behind our own riding.  His easy going but challenging manner had all of us, at one time or another, questioning the way we ride, and the reasons for it, but offered advice on how to keep ourselves safer whilst still enjoying a lively ride. 

Roger agreed to return to delve further into what was a fascinating and thought-provoking subject.
