SAM National Observer

The Solent Advanced Motorcyclists aka SAM, which is a club affiliated to the Institute of Advanced Motorists  aka IAM - Motorcycle section.  I became an IAM member in March 1979.

I became a SAM member in December 2009, the first meeting was there Christmas one,
where there is no presentations but just a great informal buffet and chat with each other.

March 2011 started observer training and became an observer in June 2011.
Passed the SAM Advanced Plus in April 2012 with a first class pass.
June 2014 passed the IMI IAM National Observer exam.
November 2014 passed as an IAM Master Rider.

SAM is is a great club and group, so if you would like to meet other bikers with a similar
interest come along.

If you would like to increase your motorcycle skills then take the IAM “Skills for Life”

training, which includes taking the IAM motorcycle test, which will enable you to

become a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists - Motorcycle section.
