Happy Christmas...

Well it's that time of year, to wish you all a 'Happy Xmas' and 'Thank You' for all your help and support of what we having been trying to achieve over the last year..
The Easter Egg Run & BikeWise were both great events and we met a lot of people out on the roads enjoying their motorcycling in County Durham.
Durham Advanced Motorcyclists once again were out on the roads promoting safe, system riding and a big thank you to all the committee, observers and members.
The BikeWise Mini-Bike Club has gone from strength to strength and the riders are progressing so quickly and it will be interesting to see them on the roads when they get to that age !!
Sadly, once again some riders have lost their lives on Durhams roads and at this time of year we should maybe reflect on what we have done to improve your own riding and look forward to 2008..
The Easter Egg Run will be held on Sunday 23rd March and BikeWise will be held on Sunday 27th July 2008. Make sure to put the dates in your diaries & tell your friends. Best Wishes and look forward to seeing you all in 2008...

You should all now have had an invitation via email with regards to joining our BikeWise Mini-Bike Group which we have created on the very popular 'facebook' community.
The group has been set up as a 'Closed Group' - Administrative approval is required for new members to join. Anyone can see the group information, but only members can see the discussion board, the wall, videos, photos, and posted items.

This means that we can have a totally private online community area where, only members who are approved by ourselves can communicate about the Mini-Bike Club.
This is open to club members, their parents/grandparents etc...
It is another way for us to let you know what is happening with the club etc.
Please make the effort to join and get involved in some discussions etc

New Helmet Safety Rating Scheme Could Save 50 Lives A Year.


New Helmet Safety Rating Scheme Could Save 50 Lives A Year.


A pioneering new government motorcycle helmet safety rating scheme which could save the lives of 50 riders a year was officially launched today by Road Safety Minister Jim Fitzpatrick.
Motorcyclists account for just 1% of all road traffic, but for 20% of all those killed or seriously injured
In a world first, SHARP - the Safety Helmet Assessment and Rating Programme - will give an independent rating of how much protection a helmet can provide in an impact. Helmets will be rated from 1 to 5 stars depending how well they perform in laboratory tests.
All helmets on sale in the UK must offer the wearer a minimum level of protection, but tests show there are real differences in safety performance. SHARP's objective advice, based on rigorous testing, will help riders choose a safer helmet by measuring the extent to which a helmet exceeds the minimum standards.
Road Safety Minister Jim Fitzpatrick said: "Our research indicates that even though all helmets have to reach a minimum legal standard, safety performance can vary by as much as 30%. The SHARP scheme being officially launched today will allow riders to select a safer helmet on the basis of a simple star rating system.
"This is a vital step forward. Motorcyclists are one of the single most vulnerable groups on GB roads today. They account for just 1% of all road traffic, but for 20% of all those killed or seriously injured. We estimate that if all riders wore helmets that scored well in our rating system, the SHARP scheme could save up to 50 lives a year."
The first SHARP ratings are expected to be available next Spring, with the majority of helmets on the market tested before the end of 2008. Early results show that good performance is not restricted to premium price helmets.

Durham Advanced Motorcyclists - Chairman steps down..

Durham Advanced Motorcyclists chairman John Matthews (left) seen here being presented with a Joey Dunlop replica by the group's secretary Bill McCready at the Annual General meeting which was held at the Bowburn Hall Hotel on Tuesday 20th November.
John passed his Advanced Test on the 12th August 1998 and has worked hard for the group throughout these years, the last few as chairman.
John has handed over the 'reins' to Brian Walls who will hopefully 'drive' the group forward with continued success. (John is also actively involved in marshalling at motorcycle meetings and usually can be seen at Croft when there's a motorcycle meeting being held.)
THANKS from all of us in the motorcycle office for all your hard work over the years John - the amount of unseen work done by the committee is greatly appreciated by us and the end result of that work is that motorcyclists in Durham have the opportunity to improve their riding.
DAM was presented with a cheque on the night from Mick Alder & Alison Bonar. This has been a feature since BikeWise was founded and helps the group with it's annual running costs.

Thank You - To Durham Advanced Motorcyclists

I'd like to say a big 'Thank You' to members of the Durham Advanced Motorcyclists who 'sprung' a surprise upon me at the 13th BikeWise event on the 29th July,which was my last as a serving Police Officer.
The first event was held in 1995 and on the same day we launched the Durham Advanced Motorcycle Group. It's chairman at that time was Mike Cope, who has been a stalwart of the group throughout the years and it was Mike who came up onto the stage at the end of the presentations to present me with a drawing of me on my Police bike - a Honda ST1300. There is a lovely inscription, from the group to me on the frame.
Throughout my years as motorcycle Sgt I have been privileged to help the group and to see it grow. D.A.M became so big at one point that it had to split and the Northumberland Advanced Motorcyclists group (N.A.M) were subsequently formed and also continue's to thrive.
Both these groups have trained hundreds of local motorcyclists in advanced riding techniques, based on the Police system of riding.
The Committee, Training officer, Senior Observers and Observers put countless hours into running the group and Mick Alder & Alison Bonar from the bike office also put a lot of their own time into helping with the group.
There are to many names within DAM to mention people individually but to all both past & present a big Thank You from Annie & myself for your kindness.
Although I am retiring from the Police Service, I fully intend to be actively involved with the group and to examine any future associates that the group put's through to test....

(If you click on the above image you will be able to see (and print) the picture)
MANY THANKS to you all for making the meeting at BikeWise 2007 such a success.
Phil Shaw as clerk of the course and all the officials (I wont name & shame you....) worked very hard throughout the day (And I apologise that we forgot to get you some drinks etc.. )
The parents who came and of course, the stars of the show, the riders.
Once again you were all excellent - your bikes & riding gear look great, your discipline in the pits and start & stop boxes was excellent and your riding was fantastic.
John McGuinness was very impressed with your riding, (I think he's now a little worried that one of you might be competing with him at the Isle of Man in a few years time).
I was pleased that Albert Nugent the leader of Durham County Council was able to attend BikeWise with his family and see the Mini-Bike Club for himself. Without Albert's support we would not be where we are today....
Pictures from the meeting will be uploaded when we get a little more time. Look out for details of our next meeting.
"Thanks Again" from all of us at the Motorcycle Office - Bob Brown

THANK YOU......

A big 'THANK YOU' to all who helped, attended, sponsored, participated, etc... with BikeWise 2007.
The sun eventually did shine this year (apart from a couple of small showers) and a great day was had by us all.
John McGuinness & Steve Brogan from HM Plant Honda racing, Michael Rutter from MSS Kawasaki & James Hillier from Kawasaki's Gearlink racing team attended the show and spent the day talking to fans and signing everything that was put in front of them !!
Dave Coates was 'on fire' in the main arena on one, two & four wheels & Michael Phillipson & Chris Huddleston showed us all what a motorcycle can do (if you have the skill) , whilst riding over everything (including a Hitachi Zaxis excavator) in the arena Trial. Michael & Chris were under the watchful eye of Andy Huddleston, who would have also been riding this year. Andy has rode at the event since the first in 1995 but has been ill during the last week and got up off his sick bed to make sure that the riders had enough obstacles !!! in the arena.
Our own motorschool worked frantically throughout the day providing Skid Pan & Landrover4wd demonstration drives, Police dogs (And there handlers) showed us what they provide to the police service and the police helicopter provided our own 'airshow'.
BikeWise Mini-Bike Club was running throughout the day and the riders had a day to remember when John McGuinness visited them.
Further info & pictures will appear on the main BikeWise site soon.
