Group motorbike riding

Posted by Howard Trott on Friday, January 12, 2018 Under: Motorcycle Riding Skills
While group motorbike ride-outs can be a fun leisure activity, safety should always be the rider’s first priority. 



Passing

Before passing a vehicle, ensure there is ample space and visibility. Keep an eye out for debris in the road, excessive wind, and other vehicles’ mirrors to avoid hitting them. Motorcyclists should always pass in the centre of the lane to avoid other vehicles’ blind spots.

Appoint a Road Captain

This person should direct the group of bikers and organise the trip. They should be responsible for setting the pace, gathering the group at stops, and notifying the group of the next location. Similarly, someone should be designated to stay in the back of the group to watch for any stragglers and make sure no one gets left behind.

Dangerous Conditions

In bad weather, ride slowly and be overly cautious of surroundings. Gently apply brakes and ride in another vehicle’s tire tracks if possible to improve traction. Railroad tracks, bumps, sewer grates, and debris should be approached carefully. If possible, raise your body slightly off the seat and increase the throttle in order to evenly disperse the force when riding over these obstacles. While riding at night, increase your distance from other drivers. Avoid blind spots and be aware of the lights on the vehicle in front of you-particularly brake lights.

Heavy Traffic

Riding in blind spots leads to dangerous conditions for motorcyclists in heavy traffic. Rather than riding side by side with others, consider riding in front of or behind other vehicles. The road captain should direct the group to a safe spot and enforce a safe following distance.



Riding with a Pillion Passenger

Pillion Passengers should always be equipped with the proper safety gear. They should sit forward, upright, and hold the rider or sissy bar if one is fitted. Next, advise the passenger to lean into curves. Ride slower with passengers as the added weight will cause the bike to respond slower, as well.
