Advanced motorcycle training IPSGA & Hazards

A look at the system of motorcycle control and hazards with graphics. Just an experiment with new software

  1. A useful video. I consider that the Information phase of the system is in
    use continuously rather than taken as a separate entity, with the other
    phases incorporated within it; as per Road Craft. There were far more
    hazards than those you pointed out, but I suppose to highlight them all
    would have been a bit of information overload. Well done.

  2. Good point. Something I often tell my associates is to consider where they
    would be on the road if they were coming the other way!

  3. OK, so you go left and promptly run up the arse of the tractor/stopped
    car/horse/cyclist just over the crest !!! Middle of your own lane
    approaching a crest and you have the best chance of avoiding a hazard over
    it from either side.

  4. I am in France at the end of April and will do some footage whilst on those
    roads…. Your side of the road riding…….

  5. i disagree- because using the system you are in the correct speed and gear
    -anticipating something over the hillcrest- to be able to stop in time in
    the distance you can see to be clear on your own side of the road

  6. ok badasschan mate, no worries i just hold nigel in high esteem and the
    techniques he teaches i removed the comment out of courtesy

  7. Been riding for nearly 36 years now all year round. Not missed a winter
    since 74. Have owned 107 bikes. Seen a lot of my mates go in the ground.
    Listen to these guys man. They are for you. What they say is out loud and
    when you know, you say these things to yourself when riding. Some off the
    fastest guys are advanced riders. And safe.

  8. These riding techniques are simply common sense. It’s sad that they’re
    considered “advanced.”

  9. Sometimes “common sense” is simply just not enough. You have to use brain.
    This video is an analysis of your “common sense” manouvres. The narrator is
    pointing on things maybe you even do not mention. Ride safe, stay alive.

  10. Your comments are appreciated and worthte effort in posting the vids on
    Youtube, Thanks Nigel

  11. That’s fine disagree away healthy intelligent discussion is a good thing,
    part of the system is positioning yourself in the best position without
    sacrificing safety and I can think of quite a few blind crests where you
    are at risk from behind as well as infront and if you were to go over at
    STBC speed you would very much run the risk of being rear-ended, hence
    middle of lane best chance for whatever eventuality.

  12. its refreshing to see people on youtube who can have a healthy discussion
    without resorting to name-calling 😉 i was always taught to ‘cut the
    daisies’ (as in the Mike Waite DVD) because any object over the brow is on
    your side is probably moving away from you and by the time you reach the
    crest your eyes will be checking the danger area long before you put the
    bike there anyway, whereas an oncoming vehicle will be travelling towards
    you at speed hence a lesser safety margin in the centre

  13. if you are referring to me, then please don’t mention Advancedbiker and
    myself in the same sentence because Nigel is light years ahead of me in
    terms of training, expertise and skill! (but thank you humbly anyway. i am
    going for my ROSPA Diploma this winter so hope to post more vids leaning
    towards post-test training this time. fingers crossed i pass it)

  14. hey nigel , i ride st 1300, can you tell why some days i can ride the bike
    fine , and others ,days im very bad, over the same strech of road to work ,
    and kick myself , when i get home, for the mistakes i have made . is their
    some kind of mind set i should be in , before i start out? and advice

  15. thanks for your answer,,and thanks for all of your , free”videos, on utube
    , they have help me a lot to understand this art”, and im sure it has
    keeped me alive, thanks again.

  16. @advancedbiker Have only taken her to 260. When my wife is riding pillion
    she is my rev limiter. Get a banging on my helmet or shoulder if i go much
    over 200. I do get scared but go through that. Not scared because of the
    traffic just there is so much endless power. Or maybe it is just
    adrenaline? Also have a Suzuki RGV which needs at throttle sensor, battery
    and a little tlc. 1st bike was a James 98cc with a 2 speed hand change.
    Paid £12.50 4 it.

  17. @advancedbiker One of the many bikes my family owned was a Francis Barnet.
    think it was a 150cc? My first bike with a normal gear lever was a 250cc
    Ariel Golden Arrow. £212 new in 1965. 2nd accident with this bike. Car
    driver opened his door. All toes on left foot broken. The Ariel stayed in
    our family for many years. My Dad (passed away 4 years ago) was still
    riding bikes into his early eighties.

  18. This really gets you thinking about the elements that you should be
    considering when you are riding, Great little video.

  19. Is it just me or does the IAM training seem to be utter crap and often
    dangerous? I small example is in this video where the rider is so busy
    “thinking” about all the minutia of detail that he forgot to turn his
    indicator off, which IS potentially dangerous. If you need to “think” about
    road position, speed gear at every single hazard of which there are
    probably a hazard every few metres, then you will have no mental capacity
    left to react quickly to an emergency.

  20. I think if you look at advanced riding of being in a position to be in
    command and being in a position to deal with the majority of situations,
    then that is what is all about. The Police ‘system’ just puts it into a
    package which you can relate to. Right Place, Right Speed, Right Gear

  21. So you are approaching a right hand bend so you move over to the left hand
    kerb and you see a pot hole ahead and approaching you at 60mph. You cannot
    move left as you are already too close to the kerb, however if you move
    quickly to the right you might well find that you have just moved into the
    path of a vehicle who is in the process of overtaking you (and who might
    think you are moving over to let him pass). I would suggest that it’s far
    safer to remain closer to the centre of the road…tbc

  22. This is my final comment (I think). 3min46. The rider is over by the kerb
    again, however there is only one real danger to the rider here and one that
    you point out – the side road, if a car came there and stuck his nose out
    before stopping then the rider is potentially dead. If he were more central
    he’d be safe. Granted it’s pretty rare that cars overshoot a junction quite
    so much but another 6 inches left and he’s definitely in range of being
    clipped. The bend itself however is no threat at all
