Welcome to Solent Advanced Motorcyclists

Hello and welcome to the home of Advanced Motorcycling in Hampshire.  We are a motorcycling group affiliated to the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) and have local training teams based in and around The New Forest, Southampton and Eastleigh, Fareham and Gosport, Winchester, Andover and Portsmouth . Our main aim is to promote safer riding and to equip riders with motorcycling skills for life.

We are based at the Sarisbury Green Community Centre, so if you live in the area, enjoy riding your bike and meeting other riders and are keen to continuously improve your riding skill, we are just what you are looking for.

Your main aim on joining the group will be to improve your riding skill, and become an Advanced Rider by passing the Advanced Motorcycle Test.

We are a busy club that offers its members a wide range of activities including ride-outs or group events every Sunday throughout the year and a Club Night on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. We also hold a very successful `SAM Sunday` on the 1st Sunday of each month from March to November, when we offer free Assessed Rides to the public. Whether you ride a sports bike, tourer, cruiser or scooter, a Ducati, Triumph or Harley, a Blade, BMW or Burgman, you will be most welcome. The group's Mobile Display Unit (MDU) can be seen at many local events attracting new members and  advertising the IAM Skills for Life package.

Everybody thrives on a personal challenge involving what they love doing, and they enjoy good company, so why not get on your bike and come and join us? You will find it great fun, for that is what motorcycling is all about! Our Membership Secretary is ready and waiting to process your application for membership, and any committee member will be pleased to help you with any queries.
