Motorcyclists have taken part in a “life saving” course to keep them safer on the north-east’s roads.
Police invited 24 riders to learn tips and tricks to help them when tackling road conditions in the area.
Twelve people took part on Saturday and 12 more yesterday.
Anne Wyatt, of Banchory, who took part in the course on Saturday, said: “It was a fantastic day and highly recommended to all riders.
“I never thought I’d have so much fun being followed by a police biker all day.”
Road Policing Chief Inspector Stewart Mackie described the course as a “life saver”.
He said: “It is both a sad and shocking fact that a significant number of fatal collisions in the north area of the country involve motorcyclists.
“We want to not only promote safe riding messages, but also encourage riders to think about their riding style.”
