Many thanks to our sponsors, without whom this adventure wouldn’t have been possible:
Adelaide Insurance Services
Principle Sponsor of the Adventure
Adelaide Insurance Services, Northern Ireland’s long-standing premier Motorcycle Insurance Broker – trading UK wide and in The Republic of Ireland, was voted the “UK’s Favourite Motorcycle Broker” in the 2008 Rider Power survey conducted by Ride Magazine. It’s the largest survey of its kind in the UK. Adelaide were first for customer service and scored the top rating for claims handling resulting in obtaining the overall number 1 ranking as the UK’s favourite motorcycle insurance broker for 2008. At the time we’d only been operating UK wide for 2 years, so this was a remarkable achievement considering the very competitive market we were up against. We extended our services into the Republic of Ireland in 2007. Contact Adelaide for a motorcycle insurance quote and you could WIN £100 motorcycle insurance discount voucher.
Adelaide’s insurance claims handler
The Institute of Advanced Motorists.
Their Skill for Life advanced driving or riding course costs £139, and is estimated to reduce your chances of having an accident by 85 per cent, as well as giving discounted insurance through Adelaide.
Adelaide’s other passion is road safety going back to 1997 when we began working with BikeSafe in Northern Ireland – primarily because too many of our customers were being killed on the road. BikeSafe is a free assessment of a motorcyclist’s riding ability in key areas –www.bikesafe.co.uk Many bikers who successfully complete this go on to do the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) safety test www.iam.org.uk. Either way, Adelaide rewards these bikers with further discounts on their insurance. (Subject to insurers’ normal acceptance criteria and minimum premium.)
