    Yep I learned far more riding across Manchester travelling home from College than I ever did lapping the Peak District where I lived

    I know @soofsayer will disagree! Lol.

    That's a great write up Wayne and really glad you enjoyed it and gained some knowledge, the Cops who do this are real riders too and rarely the stereotype guys with no discretion.

    Its funny to look in the mirror when doing high speeds and not worry about a ticket. I remember being in an unmarked car racing to a housebreaking in progress when a traffic car fully lit came up behind me, the first thing I did was check my speedo, was laughing like f13k later with the driver when I told him I nearly jumped on the brakes.

    Wearing the buff will endear you to any traffic bikers if you meet them at a burger van or coffee stop, keep the relationship up with them, they are riders too. Most have freebies in the panniers too, like ear plugs, pucks and buffs. (I know this will appeal to your inner Yorkshireman).

    Thanks for taking the time to write about your Bikesafe day Wayne, glad that you enjoyed it. Would you do another?

    I have done 2 Bikesafe days myself, there's always something else to learn and I was advised to use my Horn more, fair enough.

    I am an advocate of extensive use of the horn!
    But it has got me into trouble.......

    On a serious note, I agree with the general trend.
    Spending money on education is generally worth more in terms of speed on and off track than go faster bits.......in my humble opinion.

    Great write up Wayne, I keep saying I'm going to do one especially as I'm only 10 mins away from SYP operations unit.
