The Isle of Wight is hosting a motorcycle safety course to prevent an increase in crashes.
The Council's Better Riding course involves theory and practical training aimed at all levels of experience.
In the last three years, 76 motorcyclists have been killed or injured on the Island's roads.
The course helps motorcyclists ride defensively and prepare for hazards on the road.
A variety of techniques will be covered including advanced riding skills, overtaking, braking and filtering as well as basic first aid.
Based at Sandown Fire Station on Thursday evenings.
This course is a great opportunity for people new to riding or those in need of a refresher course to learn about the fundamentals of being safer on the road. Unfortunately, often through no fault of their own, bikers form a disproportionately high percentage of the UK's serious road traffic incidents and we feel this course - and its sister Better Driving course aimed at car drivers - is important to help make our roads safer."
– Phil Jordan, Isle of Wight Council cabinet member for public protection
A driver who recorded the highest speed in the country when he was caught travelling at 152mph was today disqualified from driving. Engineer Steven Tull, 37, of Liphook, Hampshire, was sentenced at Worthing Magistrates’ Court for dangerous driving, speeding and driving without an MOT.
The court heard from defence lawyer Marie Lewiecki that Tull lives with his wife in Hampshire but works in Oxfordshire and would struggle to commute if he lost his licence. Judge Roderick Hine sentenced Tull to a 12-month driving disqualification - the minimum he could impose.
Tull was also ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work and to pay £620 prosecution costs. Judge Hine said: "I know you find it hard to accept your driving was dangerous. The reason you were convicted of dangerous driving is what could have happened."
Stephen Tull's speed of 152 mph in West Sussex wasn't the highest ever recorded. In 2000 a motorcyclist was jailed after strapping a camcorder to his helmet and riding at 175mph in Hertfordshire. A Porsche 911 was caught in Oxfordshire, five years ago, travelling at 172mph.
