Motorcycle safety

We’re sure you already know about the key precautions you should take, such as:

  • wearing proper safety clothing to avoid serious injury
  • maintaining your bike so it’s in tip-top condition
  • and appreciating the impact weather conditions can have on your journey.

However, you may not be aware of the support we offer. Here you’ll find out about our fantastic, free workshops and learn more about what we can do to help you ride safely.

What looks to be about eight motorcycles parked in a line. They're various models and colours, from blue to silver to black. The background is carparks, where a few cars occupy some spaces, and grass and tall trees. It's a sunny day.

What we recommend for the road

2. The what3words app

It’s easier than you may think to end up lost on the roads. The last thing you need in an emergency situation is to be unable to explain where you are.

With the what3words app, you are given three words that can be used to describe your exact location to the emergency services. You can install this on your phone for free.
