Four major riding risks

As it’s the time of year when motorcyclists dust off their leathers ready for the first ride of spring, we thought we’d put together a post to remind everyone who loves their bike of four big risk areas for riders. (And it won’t hurt for other road users to know this too!)

Bends

Riding into and out of bends is potentially dangerous and riders who fail to ‘read’ bends properly are at a greater risk than riders who are comfortable with the technique and know how to use it effectively.

What's the speed limit?

How to identify the speed limit immediately and safely

Have you ever found yourself driving in a quiet residential road and then realised you’ve forgotten what the speed limit is?

The majority of drivers in these situations would drive at 30 mph to play it safe and, in most cases, that’d be the right thing to do. But if the speed limit were lower (it’s very unlikely to be higher in a residential area), then you could be putting yourself and others at risk.
