The Gaffer

I have been riding motorcycles for about 45 years (I started very young). When I left school I trained to become a motorcycle mechanic which I did for 12 years, was made redundant, fancied a change so became a class 1 LGV driver which I enjoyed, but was made redundant - brassed off being made redundant again, I decided to become a motorcycle instructor in 2001. After qualifying I worked for a company in Shrewsbury and in 2002 I made the decision to start my own company, this was Beacon Rider Training (now 2 Counties Rider Training), The company gradually expanded and we took on more trainers, eventually moving into our present shop on Wilsthorpe Road, the downside to this is spending too much time in the shop, my passion is riding motorcycles and teaching other people, hopefully passing on some of my experience gained over the last 45 years. I will now be spending a lot more time out on the road, meeting more great people and hopefully making more new friends. Currently owns a BMW R1200GS, pipe and slippers.

2 Counties version of Richard Hammond.

Leo joined the company in 2007 became a CBT Test Instructor shortly after and gained his DAS Qualification in 2010. He has been riding motorcycles since 1994, currently owns a BMW R1200R. Incidentally his nickname is soft but firm (don’t ask) or the Boy!

The Professor

Gary is the newest member of the team, joining us in 2010, he is a very experienced motorcyclist and has been trained by us to conduct CBT Tests. trainees appreciate his calm and relaxed manner. His current bike is a rather tatty Triumph Trophy which seems to have spent more time at the garage than being ridden.
