Life’s Better on two wheels
Get On, backed by the major manufacturers, encourages non riders to find out for themselves all the benefits of riding by offering a free taster session at approved training centres around the country – including Motorcycle Live.
Your Free Ride – what to expect?
An experienced instructor looked after visitors from start to finish – giving a safety briefing before kitting them out with a helmet and all the essential gear.
The practical session will lasted 20 minutes, and will took place inside the confines of Hall 4, protecting all participants against the winter weather. Visitors over the age of 16 were be introduced to the controls and learnt to get rolling and stop safely, controlling the motorbike or scooter at low speeds, and if time and ability allowed practice changing gear and riding around a simple course.
At the end instructors gave feedback and there was an opportunity to ask questions about next steps, further training or pretty much anything else you want to know.
What’s the catch? There isn’t one! We know that once you’ve tried it, many of you will fall in love with biking and want to take it further. And if you don’t, that’s fine too.
If you don’t try it though how will you ever know?
