Click here to visit Inta Bikes
We highly recommend Inta’s, we often purchase our training school bikes from them due to their high levels of customer service and aftercare. We also use Inta’s for MOTing all our school and personal bikes (and we have a lot of them!). They also have a large extended parts network and can source nearly any part.  They are an independent shop with close knit ties to the biking community and are a great place to start your ventures into a world of motorcycling. We encourage our students to visit them as they offer a range of both classic and modern motorcycle equipment including Kevlar hoodies and more traditional clothing.
J&S are one of the UK’s leading retailers of motorbike clothing and accessories. They are based in Maidstone and supply very competitive gear with some of the best customer service in Kent. Give them a go if you are after any motorcycle clothing, we recommend all our CBT students to pop along.
