i-RideClinic more about making you comfortable with your bike, rather than shaving off those two-tenths of a second off your lap times but still can show you how to knee down and pop a wheelie if you want. The basic aim here is to remove the everyday distractions of our roads, and provide a safe and fun environment to really see what you and your bike are capable of when enjoying the corners on your weekend rides!
