Many people take a break from motorcycle riding for various reasons - family, work, health, financial, sometimes life just gets in the way. That’s how it happens, but as with most things, it’s easy to get out of the swing of it. A Back To Biking (B2B/Refresher) day is perfect to ease you back in gently at your own pace until you’re comfortable with what you’re doing again. Usually the saying “You never forget how to ride a bike” applies to motorbikes too, but remember, other things change in time; increased traffic, road restrictions, speeds to name a few.
Motorbikes themselves are different from one year to the next let alone between makes and models, I remember the first bike I ever rode, it was worlds apart from bikes as we know them now. So give yourself a chance, it’s likely to be a day of saying “Oh yes I remember now”, but it’s equally likely to be a day of saying “I had forgotten that”. So with emphasis on safety, the day will be, fun and informative, importantly, it’ll get you back on a bike and feeling like that’s where you belong!
