Wink Be carefull

You would probably be the most experianced person there and end out doing the instruction your self

I think the course is aimed at road riders who have progresses to bigger bikes but have little experiance. Its actually a good idea but as usual the SMSA havnt thought it through. You would think they would ask for support from a large sportbike club who have organised tuition events before

I hope Peter Tan will be involved as he is the most experiance guy in the SMSA, could also be Fabian. I noticed the SMSA's definition of proper riding gear is jeans

Insurance

That ugly word again.

Im holding an AAM novice licence and it includes insurance.
To enter any FIM race you must have insurance.
If you renew your SMSA licence and take the years insurance now you would be covered for the whole of next season and the end of this one. You could compete in both MSS and JS as I intend to do. Check with the SMSA and Sepang about this first, hope to see you on the grid

Post What detail do you need??

If for the Riding clinic, you can call SMSA to check it out.

As for what Tug is talking we will have to wait for Tug to check then inform us again.
