…. happened yesterday 14th April.
As I am a newbie on the motorbike I am glad that one of my birthday presents had been a driving & safety training at the ADAC Hansa premises around Lüneburg in Northern Germany.
It probably has been the worst day this April so far, climate wise. However even better to practice certain break-, driving- & handling-techniques with our bikes during these bad weather conditions.
After the welcome in the morning and a short theoretical lesson we started on the course with break techniques and how to ride the perfect curve on different grounds as sand, gravel, cobblestones and wet tar. We went onto the off-road track, had a few rounds on the race track, drove into serpentines, sharp curves, practiced start/stop at a hill, and many more exercises.
In between we had stops to discuss, report and ask questions regarding the different tasks and exercises to our trainer.
It was a fun-filled day, we got a lot of input and got to know our bikes even better.
We came back to Hamburg around 6 in the evening. Happy, tired and very wet from the constant rain.
Thanks again Uwe Tobian, our coach and the friendly group for an intense, cheerful and interesting day!
