Many cars and bikes accidents occur at slip roads, including my own experience.

 

When turning left to slip road, if got vehicle in fornt of u, please, please check that it has moved out before u check for traffic on the main rd. Some ppl has the habit of checking the main rd traffic first, then accelerate, the results, the front car has not move off yet!!

 

Lesson learnt,

 

Don't be kepoh, don't check traffic for the front vehicle, just check its presence. When it is ur turn, then check ur own traffic on the main rd.

People ask me, "Why ride bike?" I ask them back :"Why drive car?"

or

When on the highway or main road, don't tail gate.

 

Allow a gap.

 

To know if enough GAP, use the 2 second rule.

 

When the vehicle in front passes a fixed object (like bridge, traffic light, bus stop) say the phrase (normal speaking speed) ONE ONE THOUSAND, TWO ONE THOUSAND, and if you pass that object before you have completed the phrase you are too close to the vehicle in front.

 

Of course for wet weather, need to leave an even larger gap.

Good... The 2 seconds Rule covers all speed.

 

As For Slip Roads... Yes, It is Important for the Front to Clear...

If you are a motorists car/bike) waiting to turn (left/right) onto a main road out of a side road, then Think Once, Think Twice, means to check for cars, the Think Bike means make a special check for bikes.

 

The SPLAT refers to the image of a motorcyclist hitting your sid and @@[email protected][email protected]@!!!!

 

If you are a biker, then you should be thinking, did the car driver "THINK Bike ?"

 

This all came from a UK road safety advertising campagne for motorists back in the 80's, and they don't show number plates flying across the road, you see graphic examples.

 

And the more stupid a phrase may sounds, the more likely you are to remember it.

I was on that PortDickson trip in Feb '05, and I thought the convoy of bikes from Ayer Kerok to Machap were to close together, sometimes riding side-by-side. If the front man went down, then every one would have gone down, except me, cos I was way way back counting One One Thousand, Two One Throusand.

For Convoy Riding...

Riding in a Staggered Formation Is Recomended.

With Sufficent Stopping Distance Between Bikes.

Laterally, The bikes can move sideways as with the Staggered Formation.

(bikes should not ride side by side.) :smile:

 

The Formation Should also be Tight enough not to let other vehicles

Into the Group.

That includes foreign bikes(that are not familiar with gp riding)

 

Still remember a Multiple Bike crash up caused by foreign bike

intruding into a group. IN last year 3 nation ride to Thailand.

When the wind from an approaching thunderstorm blows, that is enough to blow any bike from lane 1 to lane 3 or vice-versa.

Street Smart Tip of the Day #13

 

Wet Weather Riding

 

Wet Roads Means Less Traction

Smooth Changes in Direction & Braking

Is the Order of the Day

 

Avoid the Painted Lines/Arrows on the Road.

Very Slippery.

If U do Skid...

Release Your Brakes... (Locking up the Front Wheel will guarantee a Drop)

Apply again when u regain Control of your Bike.

(advance riding in BBDC will teach u how to handle a skid)

U should use both Front & Back Braking.

 

Visibility will be Reduce...

So Give Don't Miss Anything that may hit U.

Riding In the Wet may not be all Bad.

 

I have experience 2 rides in very heavy rain on the North-South Highway.

Vision is acceptable... but gets bad behind vehicles.

So I keep clear of all vehicles.

 

Any Form of Spray-on that's gets water

off your visor will help greatly.

Fogging up on the inside of visor may also be a problem.

But Normal vent provide should do the Job.

 

And It is the Acid Test for your Gears.

Water Proofs & Helmet.

 

Being in the Rain Lately? :smile:

I think majority of accidents can be avoided if everyone just leaves the house 10 minutes earlier.

 

I find myself a much more dangerous rider when I'm rushing to be "on time", compared to riding leisurely when I have plenty of time to spare.

yeah....agree tat 2!!u will feel really impatient when u are rush n tat will definitely cause an accident....so be careful rider!!!!!!!

If you really experience black-ice, I think you would rather be at home in front of a hot fire, with hot drink and not be outside on a bike.

 

Black ice is the clear ice on the road.

 

Usually when you get a frost (below Zero degrees at night) the ground and everywhere will be covered with white ice coating the next morning.

 

However if you have a deep frost after a rainy day, then black-ice can form on the road and the paths. In this tyre of weather conditions, the local town council should have gritted all the main roads with salt (this is really bad for your bike) so this melts the ice.
