Motorbikes have always been my passion & I ride a Yamaha 900 Tracer but also own a Honda 1100 Super Blackbird, which I like to take out for fun. I love riding, in all weather, with my partner Ray & we enjoy going to BSB (when work allows). I was a Paramedic in the USA where I rode my Honda VF700 Magna but never joined Sons of Anarchy.

I am not restoring any bikes but am trying to find the time, energy and resources to restore a 1999 MGF 1.8 VVC.

Motorcycles and equipment

We believe that learner motorcyclists deserve the best possible environment to train in and that high-quality machinery and equipment are not just an advantage, but are essential.

In particular, we are the only local company to use the New Yamaha XJ600 motorcycles that are compliant with the European Third directive and also have our own manufactured rider protection bars. We also use new fuel injected Yamaha YBR125cc motorcycles and our mopeds are all-new Piaggio Zip 50cc with a unique rider protection system.

We are proud that we are the only regional company to utilise new machinery that has specifically designed rider safety equipment to help you through your test.

Some of our Bikes

Yamaha XJ600cc

Amazingly competent high end 600cc motorcycle with our unique rider protection system.

These bikes are perfect for direct access having the controllable power and speed to make mincemeat of the module 1 exam. As these are high end new Japanese manufactured bikes they really are a cut above the rest.  As Camrider have a range of rider aids and protection systems, you can be confident that these bikes will ease you through any tests.

Yamaha YBR 125cc

First class learner 125cc bike from Yamaha. We believe the YBR is one of the very best bikes possible to take your CBT or standard training on.These motorcycles have fuel injection so there are no “choke” issues or warming up problems.

As the YBRs come from Yamaha you can rely on high end build quailty and relaiability that is not found in the “Cheaper” Chinese imports

Lexmoto ZSB 125cc

We have acquired these robust bikes with a great seat to handle bar ratio that fits so many rider sizes. The Lexmoto ZSB provides a contemporary take on the traditional bike design. Centred around a CBB Balance shaft engine offering 4 stroke reliability and smooth power delivery the ZSB delivers a phenomenal package.  easy to ride and a great choice for CBT.

Lexmoto Titan 125cc auto

This learner friendly twist n` go scooter gets you from A to B with ease and comfort thanks to a large comfortable seat, with ample under-seat storage, easy-to-use controls and a lightweight 118kg for easy manoeuvrability.

Lexmoto Echo 50cc auto

With a smooth and reliable 50cc motor that provides a steady and consistent performance, the Echo is a perfect bike for both those that are new to riding and experienced scooterists alike!

Had a brilliant experience doing my CBT with camrider corby/kettering this past Sunday, staff are friendly, very knowledgable and tailor the routes taken to prioritise your learning ability, weaknesses and strengths. With only a few hours out on the road I feel confident in progressing onto my DAS training and am really looking forward to it. Thanks again!

Wow, what can I say I’ve had an amazing few days at Camrider Corby. I went from no prior motorbike or riding experience to passing my CBT and both my Mod 1 and Mod 2 exams first time. Dale was an amazing instructor, he was patient, professional and knowledgeable at all times. Big thanks also to Katie and Mike and the rest of the team who were also amazing and very supportive throughout.
