Although Rob has always wanted to ride motorbikes because he is a guitar player, four wheels was the only sensible option for carting his ‘Fender’ about. However, at the age of 40 the desire was too much and Rob passed his test first time at Lichfield test centre. “My first bike, a Yamaha Fazer 600, was actually owned by the training school I was trained at, which was somehow comforting knowing how much mileage it had done with many learners (soft lad!) Since then I’ve had another Fazer and Diversion from new, and am currently riding a Suzuki Vstrom 650 which is a great all rounder.” Rob has been an instructor for over 10 years, taking a year out in 2013 due to regular gigs with a function band, but he soon got itchy for horsepower and bike training. Since then he has been with Bikewise and is proud to have provided quality training to many of our customers.
Rob admits to not being into group riding but loves the solitary feeling of riding alone in that jungle of roads. Rob says, “ Remember that armed with the correct tuition, you’ll always be upright and between the kerbs, get home safely and enjoy the buzz of knowing you did in Wright 😊 / right.”
