Organiners of the Borders bikers safety day say the event has followed on from the success of last year.
It's expected that all 20 places will have been taken for the Skill for Life course, taught by the Institute of Advanced Motorists.
The course was being offered free of charge to motorcyclists who took part in some tuition and who wanted to develop their riding skills.
Throughout the day, bikers were given 30 minute one-to-one tuition by qualified instructors. They were also shown the latest in safety equipment, as well as gaining more information about what advanced safety courses are available.
"It's really just all about road safety and encouraging them to learn how to read the road properly so that they're safe for themselves and other road users.
"We're really passionate about our activity and really looking to help build on the success of last year and get more motorcyclists out there being safer."
The safety day was a partnership between Scottish Borders Council, the IAM and Borders Group of Advanced Motorcyclists.
Bikers from across the Borders are being given the chance of a free Institute of Advanced Motorists Skill for Life course today.
There are 20 place available at the Borders Bikers open day, being held at Galashiels Fire Station.
It follows on from the success of the open day last year, which saw all 20 places filled.
Skill for Life courses for motorcyclists encourages bikers to ride defensively and sharpen their riding skills.
The programme teaches five phases of advanced riding - information, position, speed, gear and acceleration.
Although people on motorbikes only account for 1% of road users across the Borders, 20% of fatal or serious accidents involve a biker.
"Any initiative that has the potential to reduce the number of deaths on our roads involving motorcyclists is worth supporting."
Police Scotland says a second person has been arrested and charged with drug offences in the Scottish Borders as part of the ongoing Operation Gatekeeper.
