Been riding motorcycles since I was 10, first Motocross then Superbikes.
After a while road riding with mates on the weekend it started to get a bit like mad Sunday and after a few crashes and a couple of very close calls I decided to quit while I was ahead/alive and knock road riding on the head.
I thought to myself that if I really wanted to learn to ride that riding on circuit was the way forward.
Changing from the company of riders that talked a good one to people who could actually ride and ride fast was the best decision I have ever made and I haven’t looked back.
I have had the privilege to share some circuits with some real talented riders along the way from fellow instructors, clubracers, Thundersport to BSB, WSB and even on occasion Moto GP. I quickly identified all the advice and words of wisdom that really helped me take my riding to the next level.
I started instructing for No Limits in 2012 and really enjoy passing that on to others trying to do the same.
Whether it’s a Novice rider wanting to be smoother on the bike to a rider/racer looking to shave a few seconds off their laptimes.
Having someone come back to me at the end of the day and say they’ve had a great time and knocked some seconds of their laptimes through my Instruction/advice is great.
Watching them tear up the tarmac and get seriously quick is just an added bonus!
