After successfully completing both Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) and the Direct Access Scheme (DAS) is 1998, Dave first put his new skills to test on a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R and later that year, on a Yamaha YZF-R6. Dave says, “I appreciate the power, performance and challenge – remaining alert, anticipating and controlling my response to the challenges occurring around me every moment. There is joy, feeling in harmony with the machine and flowing along the roads – vibrant and exhilarated.”
Dave has continued to develop his skills through further training and a number of advanced riding, European tours. Dave currently rides a Kawasaki ZZR 1400.
