Guess what you know how to counter steer, you can't ride a single track vehicle above 15 mph, with out doing it.

Dark patches on tarmac are seldom good (Oil,Black Ice etc.). Avoid them

You need to leave that extra room in front of you because the jerk behind you isn't.
I wired a red whelan police strobe to my brake. ($50, waterproof and bright as hell) If I ride the brake a little and or stand on the pegs I haven't had a tailgater yet who didn't back off.

The flashing brake's questionable legally, but I've never been hassled for it in 3 years and at this point I'd take the ticket as a cost of staying alive.

dont ride in heavy traffic, if u must- always leave yourself an "out". keep your eyes moving, rearview mirrors, ahead, side etc... and get the loudest horn u can find and use it!! Always assume everyone around u doesnt know u r there.

i was told by a police motorbike rider if u can corner fine then you dont need to learn how to counter steer. as they were showing people how to counter steer that panic and cant corner well

(sorry for the 1st post did not realise i have missed out a bit)

Sipd-a

I learned this technique years back at a MSF course. SIPD-A or SIPD-Do. That would translate to: San (the route around and ahead of you), Identify (potential problems), Predict (what the other driver/deer/road debris will do), Act/Do it.

This is quick to do and you can do it 10 times a minute, all day long.

Great thread!

The motorcycle SIPDE strategy consist of following 5 basic steps:
Step 1: Scan - Constantly be scanning ahead for hazards.
Step 2: Identify - Identify potential hazards quickly.
Step 3: Predict - Predict what may happen with the potential hazard.
Step 4: Decide - Decide your best course of action to avoid hazard.
Step 5: Execute - Execute your plan to avoid hazard.

Search Evaluate Execute.

KNOWING how to countersteer is knowing that you push forward on the LEFT bar to go LEFT. It's scary how many riders do it but don't recognize it, or think they're just leaning their body, or whatever. Frequently self-taught riders fail to recognize the forces applied at the handlebars when they "just lean" for a corner. That works, for most planned cornering events. In an emergency, trying to shift one's entire body (coincidentally pushing on the bar) can be too slow at best- at worst they press on the right bar to push their body to the left and they steer into the hazard.

A good horn / horns (loud, deep, sounds-like-a-70s-GM-product) can extend that space, while braking, swerving, etc.

Always be totally aware of any and all vehicles that potentially can turn left in front of you. (Of course in the left lane countries like England the rule states 'right' turners are the problem.) This covers oncoming traffic, traffic coming into the intersection and parked vehicles.
