Unfortunately I missed last years meeting due to being on honeymoon and will be making up for it by returning this year with a few friends.
I am a RoSPA qualified Advanced riding instructor and was wondering if an offer of an Advanced riding presentation would be of interest.
As well as that I would be willing to offer short assessment rides with the possibility of having them videoed. If people wanted to make a small contribution to Horizons as payment then I would be only to glad to help.

Mr Monk, we would love to have a presentation and some observed rides from you.
I need a title and a sentence or two from you, regarding your presentation for the website and a little about your background for the timetable.
As for the logistics involved in the observed rides I'm sure you already have some ideas.
Email me direct on all the above
Many thanks for your offer.

I suggest you are both very careful about the insurance implications of that..... and I would echo the previous comments about country specifics. I was an IAM observer and there are a lot of areas to be rethought when riding abroad - which is the primary focus of this site. An open debate on those issues might be of more interest to the masses - for example, extremely simple, but don't ride at night if possible - and definitely not in a country where unlit road users (human or not) are common. And regardless of the law, filtering in some countries is damn awkward when you are doing it on a wavy and cracked ridge between two truck tracks in the tarmac.
Thanks for the warning but I don't see any issue.
As is usually the case when you mention "Advanced Riding" everyone has there own ideas of what advanced riding is.
The principles of good machine control, planning and hazard avoidance do not know any borders. Advanced riding is always within the law and the onus is on the rider to know the law wherever he happens to be riding.
The electric monk always has faith.
I'd like the opportunity to have my riding skills(?) observed.
If liability is an issue I'd be more than happy to sign a waiver or whatever absolving anyone of responsibility/liability. But, what's the legal position during 'normal' IAM observed rides and how would this be any different?
