  • THE FREEDOM OF RURAL ROADS  

    With the freedom of the open road, there will always be a trade off between pleasure and risk. The bigger A roads give you a sense of speed and pleasure but the more restricted views of B roads can mean you travel into problems too quickly. Single lane unclassified rural roads can be dangerous and high risk. 

    Although most casualties occur on urban roads and built up areas, the majority of motorcycle accidents happen on country roads. This is because people ride faster than their ability and sometimes run off the road, this is because their skill level is not high enough for the speed they ride at. You must not fall into this category with limited experience.

    THE FREEDOM OF RURAL ROADS  
  • FURTHER EDUCATION IS ESSENTIAL

    You can drastically reduce your own risk by undergoing some further training. Taking extra education will give you the tools to become a better rider, with elevated handling skills, vision and planning. Your trainer can give you further advice on counter steering and riding in country lanes.

    Most riders are drawn to the lure of the open road. They are normally faster flowing twisty roads with a variety of corners, as a new rider you must be confident and capable of riding these types of road to be able to cope with the problems you face on these types of roads. 

     

    FURTHER EDUCATION IS ESSENTIAL
  • READ THE ROAD AHEAD

    You must stay alert, read the road well ahead and be aware of what is happening behind you. A central riding position is a good starting point for you as it gives room for error. You can dominate the lane, which also helps you to see further ahead.

    The flow of an open road is a big attraction for all riders, the sense of freedom encourages higher speeds. You must not be influenced by peer pressure to go on long and exhausting rides or ride faster than you are happy riding. You can still have fun at the speed you are comfortable, in the knowledge you will get home in one piece with a smile on your face.

    Professional training is one of the keys to your success, learning from friends is not advisable as it is often a test of your skill by how fast you ride.
