Chief Tutor

Peter has been playing around on motorbikes ever since passing his bike test in ’86. Since then, Peter has taken part in various track days, dirt bike enduro events as well as years of mainland and overseas touring. The advanced riding journey started in 2004 passing the IAM green badge followed by a few years Instructing, more recently taking onboard the IAM Masters program passing with a Distinction as well as passing the RoSPA Diploma.

He has either owned or test ridden most makes & models and currently rides a Beemer RT on the road. He is a passionate biker and welcomes a challenge!

Following discussions and agreement between the existing group Diploma holders, it was decided  that the Chief Tutor role be rotated around these Diploma holders on an agreed basis. As of January 2020, Peter took over this role from Lilian.

Lilian is a relative newcomer to the world of motorcycling passing her test in 2007. Shortly afterwards she passed the IAM test and was then introduced to motorcycle touring. Lilian holds the RoSPA Diploma, is an IAM National Observer and also tutors on the IAM Skills Days at Thruxton. She rides either a BMW 650GS, a 1200GS or a K1300R and when not tutoring enjoys touring on her BMW. Past trips include 18,500 miles around North America, riding over the Indian Himalayas, Ushuaia in South America, New Zealand and the North Cape in Norway.

Lou began riding in 1962 – he really is that ancient! In those days young men couldn’t afford cars! He’s been enjoying riding ever since and hopefully has learned a little along the way. He still does about 12000 miles a year on his BMW R1200RT, touring, training and having fun, and has recently resumed on- track riding with about fifteen days a year booked on his BMW R1000RR or HP4 Carbon. He’s no longer the fastest, but by no means the slowest either. A RoSPA Advanced Diploma holder since April 2017 he just wants to help riders to be as safe as they can be whilst getting what they want from their biking, whether it’s touring, commuting, a livelihood or just having fun.
