Have a go on the rider skills course!

Why not practise handling your bike in tricky situations, before you really have to? The Skills Course was created by CoGS out of an original concept by Sam Manicom, the renowned author and motorcycle traveller.

The idea is to recreate real ‘rest of the world’ road conditions and obstacles that you might encounter on an adventure bike trip and teach you techniques and skills to help you deal with them safely, having fun at the same time!

The course at The Overland Event will include familiarisation with your bike’s balance points and centre of gravity, how to pick it up with the minimum of effort and damage, slow riding skills, dealing with obstacles below and above, riding uneven surfaces with confidence and a few surprises….

It’s all done on your own bike under expert guidance and is a lot of fun.
