Riding Tips 

In this section I have managed to dig out some rather good You Tube links on basic riding tips. None of my own work but thanks to those that have bothered to put this out there. Have a look at them and I hope it helps you in sharpening your technique.

A special mention to the guys at Roadcraft Nottingham for putting all this together



General Positioning on the road and some common mistakes highlighted

This video is really quite handy, giving some great advice on riding on the road, what to look out for and what to anticipate


The Vanishing or Visual  Point or Road Limit

One of my favourites as I use this a lot myself. some basic information that can easily be put into practice and very useful when approaching and negotiating bends.

Riding in the Rain
This is also a good one especially when we are in the UK. Although on the BMW GS later models you can select the "rain" mode it also helps to employ some basic skills and common sense.

Braking with Anticipation

Again a lot of common sense but I like the way these guys run you through the basics

The Art of Filtering

Another great little video on the art of filtering. How often have i decided not to do it as I am simply too scared of getting bumped off or worse hitting a car with my panniers. this is really quite useful.

Night Riding

Although I tend not to go out at night this video really is a good guide on some of the tips you should think about if you do.

Motorway Riding

Something I tend to avoid but again useful information on what to do and how to ride safely on the Motorway

Overtaking

How to overtake safely.
