How you can avoid the 5 most common motorcycle accidents

Riding a motorbike safely requires both skill and judgment. These are the reasons that many of us ride bikes. The successful use of these abilities makes us feel good and we are keen to be the best.

We can provide information on the 5 most common motorcycle crashes and advice on how you can avoid them. According to an in depth study of motorcycle crashes the 5 most common involve:

  • Bends on country roads
  • Collisions at junctions
  • Collisions while overtaking
  • Loss of control
  • Road surface conditions

Motorcycling is a skill for life and any skill needs to be practiced, honed and developed. If you haven’t been on the bike for a while ease yourself back in to riding gently and think about refresher training.


All our instructors are RoSPA qualified advanced riders, three of which have achieved the highest civilian qualification for Advanced Riding Tuition in the UK.
