Andy was first introduced to the ‘System’ through the RAC/ACU Motorcycle Training scheme which ran in the UK through the 1980’s and went on to spend time working as a motorcycle courier based in London, formed Eurobike (Bike Magazines official Travel Agent back in the 1990’s before sat-nav and the internet!) and spent several years with Motorcycle City (Farnborough) as salesman and sales manager.

In 2012 Andy joined RoSPA IART, an advanced riding group affiliated to Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents and in 2017 became (and remains) IART’s Group Tutor Coordinator.
