anticipate the actions of others
are alert and observant
can slow down and stop if the unexpected happens
position yourself in the safest and best place to maximise your visibility of potential hazards
take a 'lifesaver' glance over your shoulder before carrying out manoeuvres, so you know where others are and what they’re doing
Consider further skills training to improve your performance and safety on the road

Wear the right gear
Fall off your bike and tarmac will shred through your jeans in seconds. Wearing the right gear is just as important to your safety as servicing your motorcycle and knowing how to ride it.
Wear bright or florescent gear during the day and reflective gear at night
Bikers should wear a protective jacket, gloves, boots and trousers at the bear minimum to help reduce the risk of sever injury.
A quality helmet is essential no matter the type of riding you do, a cheap helmet that looks and feel flimsy will of course provide the same results as the feel and look in the event of an incident, there are plenty of affordable top brands to choose from such as AGV, HJC, Shark and more.
