New Horizons Motorcycle Training and Tours

Combining Motorbike Touring with Training


February 2021

The glorious 12th!

No, not the start of Grouse shooting season, but April 12th, the time we are allowed back out on our bikes for tutoring! Well, at least when the DVSA and RoADAR start their testing services again.

Already got one rider booked up for the 12th so looking forward to that. Dusting off the cameras and riding gear too.

Fingers crossed we don’t go backwards with this Covid!

Countdown to the end of Lockdown

Hopefully, we’ll be back to our old ways by the end of June; June 21st to be precise.

Taken from are the four steps to freedom:

Looks like unlimited travel in the UK from the 17 May; with full release by 21 June.

Waiting on guidance from both the DVSA and RoSPA about whether tutoring can begin again and when. Loads of discussion going on of course, but key phrase is “minimise travel”.

Lets see what guidance comes out this week.

Roll on the 22 Feb at 19:00hours

What will it be? Hopefully a plan to get out of lockdown. Will it be staggered? Will it be a full release on a certain date?

When can we get back to social riding again? I suppose the answer is “when the data says its safe” to do so. Fingers crossed we get an idea of when that will be.

At least, fingers crossed, we in the UK get our freedom back. But, it could be while longer before we can cross into Europe, though I do have a trip in the van booked for September!

Let’s wait and see shall we but in the meantime, I’m planning a few things once we are out of lockdown – such as the Iron Butt Full Monty, weekend trip to Yorkshire with four mates, tutor training, and out and about perhaps into France again with a mate or two.

Lets see what happens tomorrow evening!

Invisibility Training for motorcyclists!

Trouble with surfing the internet, planning trips, looking at routes and locations and generally pining for the great outdoors again (like all of us), I often end up getting distracted. This time, its FortNine on YouTube! Very well presented series of informative videos all about riding motorbikes.

This one is all about Invisibility Training for motorcyclists.

All his videos make for some entertaining viewing; all explained articulately in a way even I can understand! If you can, take a look at more of his videos!
