What is meant by ‘rider attitude’?
Your attitude as a motorcycle rider can have a vast impact on how you handle your machine, speed and awareness of traffic conditions. Extreme emotions such as anger, stress, intense sadness or happiness can affect your concentration, awareness of your surroundings and judgement of road conditions. It is important to ride your motorcycle or moped in the right frame of mind. Taking some time to do this before you mount your motorcycle or moped is beneficial for you and others on the road. Doing so will help you avoid dangerous situations and spot hazards before they become life or limb threatening.
