Good morning David

I just wanted to give some feed back from my CBT yesterday.

It was absolutely brilliant, I enjoyed every minute. The instructors were top notch, had great explanation on all aspects and I felt were very friendly and made you feel at ease.

I am planning to take my full test around March April time but wandered when I need to book as you are busy ??

Also, I am looking for a bike like the cb125 I had yesterday to keep me going for a few months so if you come across a cheap one could you let me know or point me in the right direction.

Thanks again for a fab day.

Gonzalo was our last new rider going through in 2016, passed at the end of December

I wanted to share with you a short video footage I’ve made of the motorbike:

Are you open today (December 27th)?

Best regards,

Gonzalo M. Carrasco Lara.


Hi Lucy and Tony

The message below was sent to me by David Long (Kent Motorcycles)

"Good to hear from Simon Ward today, booking a CBT renewal so this means he was one of the first on the OYB project.

Simon says he’s had a steady job since and travels on his bike to work, its made all the difference to him getting work.

I will be writing up a range of case studies before we finalise the current OYB programme in readiness for our celebration of achievement event in March 2017; however I thought this one was worth sharing now"

Enquiry Details: Just a short message to all at Kent M/C's to say thank you for the great service and superb hospitality today (04/01/16) when I picked up my used Honda Varadero. A very happy new year to you all. Regards David

I did my 125cc licence with Kent Motorcycle's and it was incredible! My instructor was Mr.Clarke and he was very easy to get along with, informative and explained everything a way so easy you could paint a picture in your head. I was very happy with the service i received from Kent Motorcycle's and my instructorMr.Clarke and would defiantly recommend!! 5/5!

Kent Motorcycles on the A2 have always demonstrated excellent customer service. The staff are professional, welcoming &… [...]amp; extremely knowledgeable. It's a pleasure spending my hard earned cash with Kent Motorcycles. My partner & I have been customers there since 1999 - we would not go anywhere else to purchase a motorcycle.

The Honda Kent Motorcycles at Barham was the first place i visited, and i visited quite a few after deciding i wanted a … [...]bike, but the staff there were exemplary. From the moment i walked in to the moment i rode away and all the time in between i cannot fault the guys there. They understood what i wanted, knew what i needed, went out of the way to make sure i got it and i felt like they really wanted me to succeed for me, not for the completion of the sale. 5 Stars every time! Without a doubt. I will always go there first.

Dave King, Dave Long, Karl (I don't know his surname, at the Manston training centre) and Geoff Allen (who did my CBT), … [...]and of course Hadrian himself who gave me a little extra bonus which was totally unexpected and i believe came from himself rather than the company. A great bunch of lads and i cannot fault any of them

All brilliant, knowledgeable and friendly. I would drive past any other place to go to this outlet.
Christopher Rudland 9/9/15


I find it difficult to single out one person as everyone is polite, curteous and helpful above and beyond normal expectations. However, Hadrian is an absolute gent and a pleasure to deal with, and his fine example is no doubt the yard stick that all his staff aspire to.

Reason for Dealer Purchase
I always use Kent Motorcycles for my Hondas. Hadrian and his team provide excellent support and advice- I avoid going anywhere else and travel in excess of 100 miles each way to get there

Obviously Hadrian Powell, he leads his team at Kent Motorcycles but also his technician Clive who, despite operating In the workshop always greets me by name and answers any of the sometimes simple questions I ask patiently and helpfully.

Hadrian gave me some excellent advice reference the DCT version from feedback he had from other owners but as the saying goes there is no "I" in TEAM.
