Safe riding tips

Riding with a passenger

With a partner, the adventure is even more incredible. It’s also entirely possible for your passenger to assume an endurance motorcycle position, standing like the rider. In fact, with a rider seat belt and wider footholds that prevent sliding, riding as a pair means the experience and its emotions can be shared with total peace of mind.

 


 

Riding in a group

 

Riding in a group

Riding in a group is one of the greatest joys of owning a motorcycle. It requires adequate knowledge of the basic rules that ensure the safety of each of the members of the group. Riding in staggered rows is one of the ways for the group to ride in safety. In this way, the safe distance is doubled compared to riding in a convoy.

Another method consists of having the first member of the convoy wait for the last one before changing directions. In a convoy, riders are always responsible for the person behind them. The convoy’s safety bubble should increase in relation to its speed. Avoid riding too close to the edge of the road or next to white traffic lines.

While at cruising speed, you should not be able to read the license plate of the rider in front of you. And when the group stops, it should always stop where the entire group can stop in total safety without disrupting traffic.
