Birmingham Advanced Motorcyclists

We are an official provider of IAM RoadSmart’s Advanced Rider Course. Based in the UK Midlands, we aim to help you improve your riding while having fun and making new friends.

Who Are BAM?

Birmingham Advanced Motorcyclists are the Birmingham motorcycling branch of the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) and one of the largest IAM bike groups in the country, currently with over 300 members.

The club's primary objective is improving the standard of riding of it's members, although there is also an active social scene, organised tours and lots of rides out just for fun.

If you are looking to improve your riding skills, then look no further. You can get yourself a free one-to-one ride out with an advanced observer.

Benefits of joining BAM

Yes, you can get insurance discounts if you pass the IAM advanced test, but BAM offers more than that. Forget all you've heard about old men in cloth caps smoking pipes!

BAM is a forward thinking club with an elected committee representing the members. There is always something going on: in addition to observed rides for associates in preparation for their IAM test there are monthly full member ride outs and trips away in this country and to other parts of Europe.

This site can tell you when and where the club meets, when there are organised group rides, what social activities are planned.

If you ride a bike, be it just for fun at the weekend or every day, you can improve your riding skills and safety with the help of BAM.

Further information on rides, events or meetings etc go to the Events page.
