How to safely negotiate bends on rural roads

Getting out of the Capital and experiencing what the countryside has to offer is something many riders enjoy, particularly during the summer months.

But did you know on average, about a quarter of motorcycle fatalities every year happen on rural roads – often on a corner where the road changes direction.

That’s why RoSPA has produced a five minute video to highlight the skills necessary – and the principals needed – to safely negotiate bends.

The video features a police advanced motorcyclist, who shares some of his experiences to help riders plan for what they can realistically expect to happen.

It looks at limit points, what they are and why they are important to help riders tackle left, right and a series of corners on a rural road.
