Durham Advanced Motorcyclists 2015


DAM Award

What a year for Durham Advanced Motorcyclists…

Formed in 1995 at our first BikeWise show & now stronger than ever having this year won the IAM Motorcycle Group Achievement Award for 2015 (The second time in three years)
The group will put you through a Skills For Life Training package (based on Police System riding) & the end result is an IAM Test pass (& you becoming a safer rider - for life)

Congratulations to the thirty eight riders (see below), who have passed their IAM test in the last year (of which some attended the Durham Constabulary motorcycle section's Bikesafe training day prior to joining DAM)

Congratulations also to the  nine group observers who successfully completed an IMI test and have become IAM National Observers (another great result for the group) : Bill McCready, Dave Badcock, Chris Allison, James Finlinson, Dave Walker, Len Potts, Dave Tindale, Don Russell & Keith Barton

Many Thanks to the committee for all their unseen work & to all the observers & members of the training team who put countless hours of their own time into the training of motorcyclists in this region.

Here's wishing the group continued success into 2016.

From Durham to Paris

Paris

A fitting tribute on Durham Cathedral …

Thoughts are with the families and friends of those who lost their lives in Paris last night and also all the emergency services who dealt with the incidents last night.
