IAM provides the perfect opportunity to those that want to up skill and I have found those that come along to learn are a pleasure to teach and impart knowledge to. The first chapter of Motorcycle road craft covers the mental aspects and I have become a firm believer that if you don't have the right attitude you wont get to chapter two. What we learn and teach saves lives and promotes safer riding, this still remain's my driving force behind all the hard work.
It is not always easy to get to the Sunday rides, I have my kids every second week and for the last few months there weekend falls on the same weekend as the rides. But I am lucky that I have two great kids who see what I am doing as beneficial and continue to support me, as well as my sister who watches them for me.
I hope that in the years to come they will see me as a roll model, and that doing stuff voluntarily and with out payment for a cause you believe in is a rewarding and productive use of time. Life is not always about what you get..it is about what you give.
