Before the Ride
Going for a recreational ride involves some planning, having a plan helps make sure you are prepared for what could happen in the ride ahead.
Changing road conditions create more challenges for motorcycle riders than other road users, country riding often presents additional factors for riders to consider. Being able to detect risks early is important when riding on country roads.
Coastal roads can attract tourists and holiday makers as both drivers and pedestrians, many are unfamiliar with the surroundings and therefore their behaviour may be unpredictable. It is important to constantly try to anticipate the possible actions of drivers and keep control of your own safety.
When heading home after a long ride fatigue is a major risk for riders. It is important to be aware of the symptoms of fatigue and how to manage them.
