Learning about the consequences of road safety first hand, Hendrik Bosman, founder of HB’s Advanced Rider Training Academy, was in a motorcycle accident in December 2005. He learnt that learning advanced techniques from the internet could have near fatal or even fatal consequences. Subsequently, he read just about every available book on safe riding techniques, gained training with the BMW Motorrad Rider Academy in Johannesburg, followed by an intensive Advanced Rider Training regime in both USA (Ride Like A Pro) and the UK (IAM & ROSPA). In 2014 Hendrik undertook further Advanced Alpine Road Training with GSSS, the ONLY Italian Road Training Academy Accredited and recognized by the Italian Government. He also attended the Ducati Rider Experience Basic Training at the World Ducati Week. During June 2015 Hendrik attended the DRE Courses from Ducati at the Mugello Race Circuit to further become uniquely qualified in all aspects of road & street riding techniques. The outcome is a specialized and uniquely qualified Internationally Accredited Advanced Road Riding Instructor, who holds the highest qualification an instructor can attain in the World, endorsed by the UK Government’s Driving Standards Agency. He is one of the original founders of THINK BIKE.
