Hello endlessloop, Pplater and all those who help up in the session, thanks you all very much for your times and effort to organize this safety clinic, Infact I didn't know there is this " STREET SMART ". And I think maybe there are more people didn't know there is such program going on. I was attracted with the words "safety clinic" somewhere in the page, but now don't see it anymore. I think more of the newbie will like to joint this activity. Cheers!:) :cheeky:

I would like to thank the riders who turned up for the Motorcycling Safety Clinic on 13 Oct 07.

 

Thanks FriedFishz and Ausa for your kind words. :)

 

By being there, you have already set off on the correct footing. If you practise HOV and other safety techniques consciously, I see that you will all have a long, safe and rewarding riding career. :thumb:

 

It was also my pleasure to know you as friends. :)

 

I wish to thank the following who have helped out to make this safety clinic successful: PPlater, SV650, Kushinagar, Spectrum and Saintdudu.

Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) Safety Ride 7 June, Saturday, 9.00 am to 12.00noon

By Endlessloop

 

Objectives:

1. To discuss any questions you have about HOV concept

2. To demonstrate how HOV is used and other safety aspects of riding

 

For Who?

Any rider who wishes to improve safety skills. Must come with own bike (for practical riding portion)

 

Meeting Venue

McDonald's West Coast Park

71 West Coast Highway, S(126844)

 

Endlessloop has already written and shared in this thread one of the principle safety skills that he uses to keep him safe everyday when riding in Singapore, and in maintaining a zero-accident record for the past 11 years-Hazard Oriented Vision. Please read the HOV article first to maximise the discussion time. As HOV is a mental skill, it may not be obvious to others how you apply it when you ride, making improvements difficult. Our suggestion is for you to see his riding and commentary through radio sets of his application of HOV, and to compare the responses to hazards.

 

This is a free of charge, 2-part program.

 

Part 1-Theory

Endlessloop will speak on how he implements the HOV concept. You are encouraged to raise doubts and queries for discussion. We will also discuss any problems you have difficulties handling on the road. Riders are encouraged to share their experiences and knowledge. Part 1 should take just over an hour.

 

Part 2-Practical

Endlessloop will lead short convoys and apply commentary riding. You will hear him through radio sets. You will be able to see how he positions himself on the road, his riding speed, the type of spacing he keeps (see "cocoon of space" that he wrote in this thread) and how to find such spaces. This practical portion allows you to apply HOV yourself while hearing his application comparatively.

 

Please pm Pplater your name and handphone number.

Hope the HOV Motorcycling Safety Clinic was useful to those who attended. Too bad the rain has postponed the practical HOV ride part. You can join in the next session.

Wish you a long, safe and fun riding career.:thumb:

 

I would like to thank:

- PPlater for organising and arranging all the logistics to make this possible.

- Kushinagar for helping to annoucing this clinic through SBF so people are aware there are ways to minimise danger

- Ausa and PPlater for coming down to share their safety experience

- Saint DuDu, AC Devil64 for lending their radio sets

- Spectrum for helping to communicate and I also used some of his powerpoint slides

Many thanks to Ausa, Endless and Pplater for organizing the event. One week since the event and I've seen the fruits..

 

Been able to see the gaps (created when the car behind chooses not to close up) and ride in them. - This cuts out the need to jostle with unnecessary traffic. This gapbecomes a nice cocoon of space where traffic is sparse and not changing quickly. Riding this way has been relaxing, so much so, to the point where I'm tempted to overtake just to busy myself with some action :slapforehead: Haha

 

Changed my braking habits for corners. - Woah~ Prior to your explaination, I was using my brakes during the turn. Did I know that rolling off the throttle and applying rear brakes have the effect of reducing traction on the rear wheel? Nope. But now I do. Phew! :thumb: This knowledge will save me from initiating a self-skid accident in future.

 

By completing your braking before intitating the turn, the challenge then lies in your judgement on the speed you can safely take the bike through the turn. It's a question of correct speed selection for the type of corner. Previously, I cornered without getting to the correct speed, then adopted a fix-it-on-the move attitude to my speed and banking angle. It was a bad habit of trying to take corners at a faster speed so just to test myself. tsk.tsk. An Accident waiting to happen.

 

HOV - It's amazing how the road conditions move in slow motion when you are constantly scanning for potential hazards in HOV fashion. Instead of being over-whelmed, you are totally immersed in the flow of situation awareness. It's another dimension like when using a night-vision goggles in pitch blackness. By sensing the hazard before you are exposed to it and making minor changes on the move, the ride becomes smooth and reduces the shock of last minute avoidance reactions. It keeps you one step ahead of the game. In the absence of hazards, you take a deep breath and relax. The concept of turning on, and then, improving the accuracy of your mental radar turns the road into a chessgame to decipher. It's great fun and gives you confidence that you have taken every action in your power to reduce risk.

 

Endlessloop, Your emphasis on safety, safety and safety provoked a need within me to re-evaluate the things I do on the bike.

 

From now onwards, an enjoyable ride is foremost a safe one. Debriefing through the ride, there's enjoyment to be found on the things you did right and finding things to improve on the next ride. HOV is an essential skill in my quest for riding finesse :lol:

 

Will try to make it for the practical session on the next event.

 

Continue with the good work guys
