Today, more and more bikers enjoy riding in a group, since it is not only an impromptu short excursion but also a chance for biker singles to meet someone who rides motorcycles. Usually, group riding is defined as two or more bikers riding together. Of course, whether you are a veteran motorcycle rider or a beginner, you should understand many specifics and instructions when riding in a group, including hand signals, riding routes, how long stop for taking a rest and other necessary instructions. Now, here are some safety tips for group riding below that will lead you to enjoy a pleasant group riding tour.
In general, there is at least one ride leader who leads the group to complete the riding trip safely. And the wireless intercom is the main communication tool which ride leader could clearly tell other group members the final destination and the stops along the route. The safest riding in a group is staggered, which could ensure that there is a safe distance between each other. If you want to change the lane, you should turn on the signal lights in advance to tell other members what you will do. Also, when riding in a curve, slow down, turn on the signal lights and honk the horns.
To ride safety, there are two important specifics that every group rider should bear it in mind. First, make sure the behind motorcycle riders could see the front leader rider. So don’t elongate the single file formation. Second, the front riders should indicate where are obstacles and other information ahead with hand signals to the behind members. In addition, although you want to feel the thrill winds across the face on the open road, don’t ride too fast in a group since that is very dangerous. If you are riding alone on the road, you can do.
You know, the signal lights are very important, whether you are riding alone or riding in a group. So check your motorcycle regularly before start riding, especially for group riding. At the same time, remember the group riding hand signals, which are not only a key to safe group riding but a good way for communication. If you are skilled to use those hand signals when riding in a group, you will have an interesting and unforgettable riding journey.
