Group Meeting OR's typically last an hour or 90 minutes at most. For many Associates, finding time to practice between OR's can be difficult and as a consequence, progress may be slow. The Norfolk format provides a perfect opportunity for you to have several extended OR's with plenty of variety and lots of observer feedback. Whatever your level, the Norfolk weekend is sure to give a real boost to your confidence and riding skills.
Meet at Thurrock Services for coffee, breakfast & chat then receive the allocations for the ride up to Norfolk. The day will consist of extended OR's as we head towards Cromer, via Essex and Suffolk, with coffee and lunch stops.
Be prepared for a full day in the saddle. Riding is thirsty work, so your riding debrief is followed by pre-dinner drinks. We have a 3-course dinner followed by ‘putting the world to rights’ discussing all things motorbikes, accessories, clothing & future trips etc in the hotel bar.
After a relaxed breakfast, Associates are allocated to a different Observer for OR's and they set off to explore the Norfolk countryside and its coffee shops. Following the extended OR's from the way up, this is a great opportunity to practice, work on specific aspects with your new observer and fine-tune your ride.
Saturday night is a re-run of Friday, with the added bonus of some after-dinner banter and the ‘LAM Norfolk Oscars’ for ‘outstanding’ behaviour or any unfortunate mishaps.
After breakfast there’s packing and fettling to get ready for the ride home. Associates who would like further OR's can normally be accommodated (please ask on Saturday night); some may choose to join a ride home lead by an observer or full member, while others prefer to form groups of their own.
The ride home is a real opportunity to embed all of that good practice, so it becomes part of your normal, instinctive ride. For many Associates, the Norfolk trip is a great 'sharpener' to polish up their riding and get them test-ready.
