    P-plate should be an attitude to safety and riding. There's always more to learn.

    Thanks for the updates...

    Btw, where will the practical session be held moving off from Ulu Pandan CC?

    Mount Senai road...Ulu Pandan...Clementi ...Dover....?

    Just curious or should I say to get myself pre-oriented before the event.

    Ha ha ha, S-Line. No need to pre-orientate 'cas I haven't figure out the route yet.

    All bikes please fuel-up for at least 50km of ride. Please bring rain gear in case of rain.

    Do come with some "burning questions" to ask 'cas given the amount of time, we can only cover a fraction of total safety knowledge. So do ask something that you really want to know.

    On the 8th Nov morning all participants arrived at the Ulu pandan CC. The morning lecture was conducted by Endlessloop with Shirley as Lady Friday who set up the computer and projector.

    They are assisted by many bikers from Moto-V. Thank you all for your time.

    After a brief introduction by all the participants. The leader asked what we want to know during this short briefing. Everyone contributed at least a question/reason that they want to gain by attending this lecture.

    From what I had learnt are to:

    1. Anticipate Hazards on the road, ahead, from the sides and from behind.

    2. Give yourself some time, ahead of the meeting time so you would not have to rush. When you are late and you rush to your destination you will tend to neglect you surrounding. You will not be as observant as when you are more relax and not rushing for time.

    3. Scanned your surrounding for danger, look at behavior of drivers through car window and the movement of the cars around you. Do not day dream.

    4. Learnt what is you coocon of space. How to creat your coocon of space. What to do when someone intrude into you coocon of space. Of all the lesson learnt, this is the most important (to me).

    5. There are many other which is just like a good old revision.

    After the lecture part is the practical lesson. Class is divided into 3 groups due to the large class size. The leader for the first two group is lead by Endlessloop, while the 3 group is by Pplater.

    The sweepers are Victor Tan and Ausa.

    During this part the leader talk to the rest of the convey by walkietalkie all the things that a biker should observe while riding. Pointers were giving even on seemly minor thing which I took for granted.

    After everyone of the convey members have taken turn as 2nd rider we then return to the lecture room while the 2nd group take their turn in the practical ride.

    After we return to the lecture room a short video presentation was given, this time by Pplater. Video of traffic accidents. One of them that caught my eye is the guy who look at other accident did not look infront. Bang into the back of the bus.

    The whole thing finished at about 2pm.

    What was missing?
    I think is the introducing of safety gear to those who still do not use them.

    Thank the team for giving their time to make this lecture interesting reminding us the safety aspect of using our busy Singapore road. If anyone who by attending this lecture and miss been a accident target, then the team had done their lesson.

    During this 5 hours, what has I learnt. Many, aspecially on safety.

    Met new friends and familiar faces, we shared experience and chat.

    I strongly recommend to Probationary rider.. This workshop makes you better aware of the potential hazards (so that you can react early) from before the start of your journey, to your destination.

    As for the more experience rider, an eye opener/revision.

    My thanks to all that is involved.
    Truly a worthwhile experience.

    I really found the HOV session very helpful! Thanks to endlessloop, pplater and those who helped out in other ways too!

    What was really helpful for me in this session was the part when Endlessloop shared about the art of lane changing on expressways - looking for pockets of space and leaving a safety cocoon for myself. In the past, I felt that I was constantly tailgated on the expressways. But after I adopted Endlessloop's method, I find myself relaxing and enjoying my ride even more!

    I hope that HOV can be conducted on a larger scale so that more riders will be able to benefit from it!!
    Biking is something that everyone can learn and enjoy!

    Eh...... Larger scale is more dangerous .... the participants wouldnt be able to see or note what Endless is saying cos the convoy be really long...

    In smaller groups but proceed in turn will be more beneficial...

    Am i right 0_0 endless?

    Quite a number of riders who attended the HOV session think that the session will benefit more riders and that more riders should attend. I think this is what S4^Dreamer ( can I call myself 4D^Dreamer? ) meant by a larger scale.

    Thanks for your honest feedback! Looking at how to improve for future sessions.

    At the same time, Ano, I also agree with you that the convoy cannot be large because the participants benefit more in a smaller convoy. So it seems that we do need more HOV safety instructors.

    Hi all, thank you for your honest feedback via the feedback forms, in this thread and to Endless via pm. The session this sat is primarily to train intructors to lead convoys for future HOV sessions, because as you can see, we are short handed on manpower. Endless, some members from motov and myself will also be discussing your feedback and how we can improve conducting such courses for participants in future. As you know, we are volunteers who are figuring our way around trying to spread the safety message and a safe method of riding to fellow riders. If you would like to assist us on an impromtu basis for future sessions or to help in anyway, please pm me to inform me of your interest. I'll keep you in the loop. Cheers.
    P-plate should be an attitude to safety and riding. There's always more to learn.

    plus when ur on a scooter, u tend to get a bit lazy... in e attire...
    i learnt it from yogi...
    he wore slippers n shorts when he rode his previous bike...
    haha...

    hmmm reminded me of my biker fren...
    he rode Blackbird last time... all the way standard attire... slippers, shorts and singlet. The time he wear gears... he buang..
    change to silverwing.... he was wearing same thing. .He buanged i went visit him .... see all the abrasion.... wonder what is his standard attire now...

    Bottom line is ... our flesh vs the HOT TARMAC .... who wins?

    Silverwing has 55 litre under the seat... (if have top box another 48L)?
    If single riding... cant be not enough space for additional clothin and shoes ya....

    Having ridden Silverwing b4 i know the enjoyment of wearing minimum when going marketing....
    convenient and cooling.. Then again... after my own encounter with the HOT cruel tarmac in Msia.. Its is the moment u pull urself together that you really thank God you were in one piece ( those there were injuries).
    All the gears were really put into good use and believe me. I wished I had more protection rather than Roller blading knee guards ( not enough cash for riding pants then)......
    My gf though did a superwoman. She was totally intact admist the shock also thanks to the gears. Not 1 bit scratched.

    Anyway not lecturing jus sharing my thoughts.
    Leh Cheh for the moment or scarred for life.

    Enough of my losoh storey.

    I still have my old Arai helmet for education purposes. Maybe I'll pass to Pplater for coming HOVs and safety talks...
    Not promoting any brand of helmet but jus wish to reiterate that a decent helmet can really save lives.

    Umm... yup yup... I think the incentive of wearing protective gears when riding is not only for protection... but also for losing weight too!!

    agreed with SV650......

    Ano, i would suggest that Action is faster than Words,
    since that Arai helmet is yours, you should be present this Sat, so that people won't think that this is a make up story.
    Be present on that day okok, you have our MORAL SPIRIT

    Er... yup, I wear like that all the time. And bro, it's not as hot as you think lah... My jacket is mesh one so it's actually quite cooling on the expressways lah... So no need to tahan one... all i can say is that it takes getting used to...

    And yes... like what Anodise57 said, wearing rain gear is the siong one... not wearing riding jacket and knee guards!

    As for touring overseas, I'll be in my ultimate full gears... armoured mesh jacket and touring pants, leather gloves and of course, FF helmet! Actually, you can see what I wore on my blog about the Cameron trip on s4dreamer.blogspot.com!

    The amount of protection worn is entirely up to the individual. In the ideal case, I would love to don my full leathers, boots and armoured gloves everywhere I go, but it is just not practical.

    I must admit as the years pass, I get more and more complacent on riding gear, now i'm even *gasp* using open face helmet on my daily commute!

    But once upon a time I did wear riding jacket everywhere I went. Its really not that unbearable even in the worst of afternoon heat, unless you're stuck in a traffic jam with your bike blowing hot air at your legs full blast....

    Who will guard the guards?

    Currently only the open face protective helmets are mandatorily. The rest of the protective gears are still up to individual. I’ve seen more and more riders putting on more protective gears. I believe these riders are more aware of the protection needed when riding a bike.

    If you are only wearing an open face protective helmets just because it is mandatorily, I hope at least your pocket is protected.


    And this is a NO, NO, in any riding!

    Thanks for endlessloop, pplater, and the rest who organised the 8th Nov HOV. For the time and effort put in.

    It's been a wk or so now and i've found that after going through all that was presented and illustrated, riding has become more relaxing and less taxing. At the same time, it has become much easier to spot potential hazards from further. My understanding and learning is far from complete and the MindMap which endless prepared is helping surely. practice abit a day.

    The practical riding portion was eye-opening and definitely manages to highlight the different situations that we encounter on a daily basis and how better to read/predict them.

    As a fresh p-plater with very little experience, i found the session immensely helpful as it aids in filling in the gaps between emerging fresh from the riding school and road experience. Better that we get to learn from other ppl's experiences than through trial and error in this high-stakes environment.

    Would definitely urge any other green p-platers to attend the session. the benefits are tremendous, considering the fact that sch is totally diff from real road conditions.

    Once again, thanks to all who made it possible who were involved in the session!

    The past few sessions have been conducted 6-8months apart. Generally when there is enough demand, say 6 pax, we will organize the next one.

    Interested riders can pm me their contact number and I will inform all riders when the next session is organized.
    P-plate should be an attitude to safety and riding. There's always more to learn.
