Websites, videos etc for riding tips and techniques
« on: 30 July 2021, 10:02:04 pm »
I've decided to make this thread a sticky and add a few more sites with useful guides for riding technique and tips for everyone's benefit

If you have any suggestions for sites/ links/ videos etc to help other people improve their ride, please add them below :thumbup

Hello guys.
I ´ll share with you, and with any 2 wheels rider, I know, what I find is one of the best websites for riding improvement, skills, technics, safety, tips, etc etc.
It gives us great tolls (for instances "Trail Braking" which I didn´t knew) to improve our riding and specially to be a safer rider.
The most, biggest and dangerous mistake, is assuming we are great riders and that we have little or nothing to learn, just because we have been riding for years. We need to keep learning and be willing to improve our riding all the time.
This website is absolutely great. Dave, seems to look that he actually knows what he is talking about (It sounds logic to say the least). Is from USA, but suits every rider.
It also give tips and advise on bike maintenance and riding equipment reviews.
Check it out and comment back your opinion if you wish so.
As Police Scotland says: "Ride Safe - Home Safe"

don't forget post test training.


RoSPA....(Royal society for prevention of accidents) I'm an advanced tutor for the Merseyside/South Lancs group


IAM (Institute of advanced motorists/Motorcyclists)


Both offer excellent post training courses, I'm biased and say go RoSPA  :lol [size=78%]but whichever you choose, you'll get great input for a safer ride[/size]
