Welcome to the Motorcycle Mastery Blog. I will be bringing you weekly detailed articles on motorcycle riding — with an emphasis on advanced techniques for enhanced safety, so be sure to subscribe to posts below!
It is worth noting that my emphasis here is on how to ride a motorcycle safely on the street. This is a different skill set than that required for track, or race riding. On the street, we have far more to contend with than just control of our machine. Indeed, for the majority of the skills we will discuss, control of your machine will be almost a given. Of course, taking your machine to track days will help with the fundamental skills of machine control, and may indeed help with your street riding (although many of the control and cornering techniques will differ—taking into account the different environment on the street), but safe riding in the real world requires far more than machine control. It is these enhanced skills for safety that will be the subject of this blog.
As a teaser, here are some of the topics we will be covering:
- Signalling and Signal Reinforcement
- The System for Safe Motorcycle Riding
- How the turn tells you the best speed
- Scanning and Hazard Fixation
- False Signals
- Group Riding
I will also bring you news, reviews and articles which will be of interest to the motorcycle rider — no matter what your style of machine, or style of riding!
