Introduction

1. ♦ Rules of the BIKER

 
 

• Motorcycling can be fun, economical and safe. It may reduce your carbon footprint.

• However, motorcycle riding can also be hazardous.

• Motorcycle riders are less protected than car drivers and have a greater chance of being killed or injured in a crash.

• You can become a safe rider through acquiring the necessary skills and understanding of the road environment, by always being alert and defensive and by accepting that the prime responsibility for your safety on the road is yours.

• Our procedures for motorcycle rider are designed to help you become a safe rider, get you confident and teach you the neccesary skills.

Enjoy your riding, but above all, ride to survive.

 
 

THE DEFENSIVE DRIVING SYSTEM (SIPD)

• Search (for hazards)
• Identify (the type of hazard)
• Predict (how one will be influenced by it)
• Decide (what action to take)

SEARCH

We should continually be searching for anything, which could cause us to change speed or direction. The search process should not be restricted to forward vision only, but to the sides and rear as well.
