On average about a quarter of motorcycle fatalities every year happen on rural roads often on a corner where the road changes direction.
This 5 minute video features a police advanced motorcyclist who shares some of his experiences to help riders plan for what you can see, what you can’t see or realistically expect to happen. The video looks at limit points, what they are and why they are important to help riders tackle left, right and a series of corners on a rural road.
The short video sequence will visually highlight the skills necessary and the principals, which should be adopted to safely negotiate bends.

Note for highway authorities and road safety practitioners
This video has been produced with support from the DfT and can be inserted onto highways and road safety partnership websites to support local motorcycle initiatives. RoSPA is happy to share its experience in producing these resources but would recommend that those interested in replicating it seek the assistance of a film company who are experienced in the use of drone cameras.
To help promote the video, RoSPA has produced 4 short social media videos which are available to watch and share below:
