Craig Jones rolls out new Kawasaki’s for RideSafe Rendezvous

Posted on


Stunt rider Craig Jones has secured support from Kawasaki for the 2010 season and his first public appearance on the new green machines will be at the fifth annual RideSafe Rendezvous on Sunday 25th April.

The free one-day event, organised by RideSafe BackSafe with support from the Highways Agency, will also include stunt performances by Paul Swift Precision Driving (son of Russ Swift), slow riding demonstrations by Merseyside and Lancashire Police and BikeSafe officers plus live music by two local bands.

Dealerships supporting this year’s event include Hunts Motorcycles and Boom Trikes from Manchester, Preston Harley Davidson, Chorley Yamaha, Philip Youles of Blackburn, Millennium Motorcycles of St Helens and GhostBikes from Preston.

Honda UK will be appealing to the next generation of riders with their ‘My First Licence’ scheme.

Aimed at five to 11 year old children, the scheme provides youngsters with a mock-up mini road system, including road markings, signs and other road furniture, to enable them to experience the fun of riding a restricted 50cc motorcycle in a safe environment. Experienced riding instructors look after them constantly and all safety equipment and clothing is provided and fitted before the fun starts. At the end of their first ride, children will be given a personalised licence that replicates the real thing, as well as a RideSafe BackSafe goodie bag.

The RideSafe BackSafe team, together with BikeSafe, the Highways Agency, IAM riding assessors, BMF, MAG, First Bike on Scene and other industry experts, will be on hand to promote the benefits of voluntary rider training and discuss road safety issues affecting bikers. Young riders in particular will be encouraged to check out the latest and best in protective clothing and body armour.  

The show will be held at Central Car Parks in Blackpool between 10am & 5pm and both show entry and parking are free.

Honda’s ‘My First Licence’ experience is free. Participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
