Full protective gear

Please ensure you bring adequate protective clothing with you to the course. Riding has its inherent risks and we believe in prevention rather than cure! We have helmets , gloves and riding jackets available on request. 

  • Helmet 
  • Boots. 
  • Gloves
  • Protective trousers and jacket (or jeans)
  • Cap & sunscreen
  • Camel back (hydration pack) or water bottle is highly recommended if not essential to make sure you do not dehydrate.  

 However, there will be occasional breaks to quench your thirst.

  • Rain suit (if necessary).  If we expect rain, training will continue and you will get even better value for your money as we'll teach you to handle your bike in wet conditions.  Except  for extreme weather conditions – course will be rescheduled.


  1. You have to be comfortable with balance on the motorcycle.
  2. A reasonable level of fitness is recommended as training can be both quite physically and emotionally   intensive.
  3. Drink plenty of water before and during the course.
  4. Especially in the colder months, wear layers of clothing which can be peeled off as it usually gets warmer in the day.
