If you want to get on, get on a bike. That’s what hoary old reactionary Norman Debit always used to say. And if that bike’s got a motor, then so much the better.

That’s why leading professional insurance claims handling firm Bankstone is vigorously urging anyone who still has no idea what to do with their bank holiday weekend to spend it learning to motorcycle for free (n.b. no liability is accepted for any misadventure consequent upon so doing).

That’s right, this weekend the Motorcycle Industry Association’s ‘Get it On’ initiative is offering novice would-be bikers the chance to taste the thrills of two wheel travel – absolutely 100% gratis free! And it’s also open to oldsters who’ve simply forgotten how to ride a bike.

All you have to do is get yourself to Warwickshire (and if you’re already there, then so much (in this specific and strictly limited sense) the better! ‘Get On’ will be offering 45-minute taster sessions in the grounds of the British Motor Mausoleum between 9am and 5.30pm from Saturday 26th through Monday 28th August.

You must be over 14 (don’t take that personally, you’re only as old as you feel) and you must be eager to get your ‘first taste of riding in a safe and structured environment, where expectations about wearing protective clothing are set and people understand the value of finding high quality training.’

If that’s you, then get yourself along to the BMM and then belatedly discover that you needed to pre-book a session by phoning 02476 408040, or via the website  – unless they’re not too busy in which case you might be alright. And if your under 16 don’t forget to bring a minder.

Happy tasting first-timers!
