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.

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.

Kev started riding in 1992, at 16 and has been on two wheels since. Most of his riding is for social reasons, running up several thousand miles during the year, including the odd commute. His current bike is a BMW K1300R. In 2010, Kev joined the IAM and in the following year joined RoSPA where he gained a Gold Grade pass. In April 2017, Kev achieved his Advanced Tutor Qualification. As a motorcyclist, he feels that there is always something to learn.

Garry passed his motorcycle test in 1972 and joined the RAC/ACU advanced riding scheme immediately, qualified and acted as a tutor for 2 years until the scheme ended. He has been riding all marques of bike ever since. He became interested in advanced motorcycling in 2017 with the purchase of his first BMW, a K1600 GTLE. He started RoSPA advanced training at that time and initially got a Silver in August 2017. He continued his rider training and retook the RoSPA Advanced Motorcycle test in 2019, attaining Gold this time. Garry then continued on to RoSPA Advanced Motorcycle Tutor training and became qualified late in 2019. He is passionate about all things motorcycling and safety. His current bike is a BMW R1200GS and is based in the Isle of Wight
