Eric Tonna, a keen motorcyclist from west-London, is the winner of a competition organised by 2Wheels London over the summer months.
The competition – which attracted more than 300 entries – asked entrants to choose from three safety-related tips for powered two wheeler riders in the Capital.
67% of the 305 entrants chose ‘wear protective clothing in all weather’, followed by ‘look twice at junctions for vehicles pulling out’ (22%) and ‘keep your distance from the vehicle in front’ (11%).
Riders were also invited to share their own safety tips, and among the most popular answers were: perform the lifesaver look when turning right; wear a brightly coloured helmet; be aware of your surroundings; don’t ride up the inside of vehicles; and concentrate.
All those who entered were placed into a prize draw – with Eric Tonna, who rides a 2018 Yamaha R1M, selected as the winner.
Eric rides his bike most days throughout the year and has clocked up more than 14,000 miles in the last six months while exploring France, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
He says he will use his prize – a £200 voucher for Infinity Motorcycles – to purchase a new jacket.
There were also two runners-up in the competition, who received £100 and £50 vouchers respectively.
