Motorcycle safety in the UK and providing links to safety organisations in the UK. I can also advise on road safety issues and some areas of road safety law in the UK although I can only offer guidelines, there is no substitute for a qualified legal advisor. Please do NOT ask me questions of a mechanical nature as I will be unable to answer. I am not a mechanic, I am a road safety advisor.
I was a Gold Star Riding instructor in the eighties until a serious accident nearly cost me my life. I have been active in road safety for over ten years in the UK and have had success in having road safety measures implemented in various areas, mainly around our local schools. I have ridden motorcycles of all sorts (from GT750 waterbus to CB250 dream) since the late 70's and prefer four stroke road bikes, my favourite was my old CB750F. two strokes are too noisy, off-road bikes are impractical in this part of the UK. I now ride a 23year old Suzuki GSX600 (Teapot)

As much as I possibly can ! I would love to get rid of the "Biker" label in the UK ... motorcyclists are not all greasy long-haired foul smelling layabouts! (And never have been except in Hollywood!)
I am also a writer and keen musician. I have written a few childrens stories, a field archery manual/guide and am working on a novel.
90% of motorcycle accidents are caused by "Driver error" (Usually the person tucked up nice and safe in a metal box!) UK riders are fed up with being ripped off by high fuel prices

Such a system already exists on the Honda Pan European and Deauville. BMW, Kawasaki, Triumph and Suzuki also have a similar system on their touring machines. The main problem is the fact that many riders
