Forcefield the specialist body armour manufacturer and Get On contributor recently converted another non motorcyclist to the joys of two wheels. New Forcefield managing drector Andy Gregory decided to take the plunge after being encouraged to "Get On" by the company's many bikers.

Taking advantage of the Get On rider training area at the recent Carole Nash Motorcycle Live, Andy enjoyed the taster session on board a Yamaha YBR125 and has confirmed he enjoyed the experience so much he will be taking the full one hour Get On trial session with a view to completeing his CBT and full test.

After cooling down from his ride Andy said, "I have always thought about learning to ride but never really got round to it, so this was the perfect opportunity to finally give it a go and see if I liked it. Although I was struggling with coordination, the patience of my instructor helped me enormously and I am happy that the experience of riding a bike was exactly as I had imagined. It also confirmed my belief that by supporting the Get On campaign we are supporting our future by making sure there is a market and customer base for our products."
