How to plan ahead as a rider

RLAP LogoThere’s a scene in the original Rocky movie where Rocky has to collect a late loan payment from a dock worker. Rocky was told by his loan shark boss that if the guy doesn’t pay up, he’s to break his thumbs. It turns out, the dock worker only has half the money he owes. Instead of breaking the guy’s thumbs, Rocky chastises him and screams out, “you should a planned ahead”.

Failure to negotiate a turn

RLAP LogoIf you’ve ridden a motorcycle for any length of time, I’d be willing to bet at some point you’ve ridden into a turn a little too fast.  If you were lucky,you made it through the turn without low siding, running into an oncoming vehicle or going over a cliff.  The fact that you made it through the turn without crashing doesn’t mean you’re a skillful rider, it just means you’re a lucky one.

Men riders vs the lady riders

RLAP LogoGenerally, my classes consist of a mixture of both sexes, however, the majority are always men. This fact is simply because men buy a lot more motorcycles than women, however, female riders are the biggest growing segment in motorcycling.

file13A family in the UK has decided to release helmet camera footage from their son's crash with the hopes that they can prevent even one person from dying needlessly.

The video clearly shows that the rider's excessive speed and the auto drivers lack of judgement caused a young man to loose his life, a mother to grieve, a family bereft.

Group Rides

columnist David PocockSo, you ride in a group this make you safe, or does it?

The group ride experience can be one of the great days of riding or, it can be a great disaster.  Much like solo riding, the possibility for either rests with you, unfortunately in the group setting there are others who can affect the outcome too.
