IAM has released the dates for the 2015 series of Skills Days at Thruxton. The cost is staying the same at £129.00 which is excellent value for money. You will be riding with a group of similar experience/standard motorcyclists as yourself. Every DWDAM member who has been has thoroughly enjoyed the experience but, more importantly, it has greatly improved their riding skills. Many going back for a second or even third time ! In the words of the IAM on their web site:
"Our hugely popular skills days offer stimulating learning experiences on well known, challenging circuits with IAM Instructor guidance throughout. You will enjoy at least six separate 'on-track' sessions in your own bike with the focus on anticipation, cornering, planning, smoothness and understanding how your vehicle performs in a variety of situations. These skills days offer outstanding value for money compared to many other track experiences, with MORE on-track time and MORE instructor guidance than you will find elsewhere."
The dates are:
Members can book from
Tuesday 20th January from 1000 on 03003 031134
PS. Expect to be on the phone for a long time as it is difficult to get through and places fill up very quickly.
However, last year further places were available later in the year as riders cancelled booked places.
Sunday Ride Out - Portland Crab Sandwiches
An enjoyable ride out which passed through some lovely villages, beautiful scenery and best of all, lots of new routes for some on the ride. The brilliant weather made up for the disappointment of missing out on a crab sandwich lunch.
