Insights into Advanced Motorcycling Part 2


This second in the series of Insights booklets on advanced riding looks at the ‘System of Motorcycle Control’ ( otherwise known as IPSGA) – this describes the order in which things should happen when riding – Information, Position, Speed, Gear, and finally Acceleration.

This full-colour booklet looks at each of these elements, expanding them in turn by example to show how they build towards a complete riding technique.

Every chapter of this booklet is loaded with simple tips and reminders you can try regardless of your riding experience to help you towards qualifying as an Advanced Rider.

The foreword is by Gary Baldwin, member of the Motorcycle Roadcraft editorial board and founder of Rapid Training. “‘Insights’ are not lectures or lessons but the fundamentals of motorcycling put in a context you can relate to as a biker.”

The booklet goes on to look at studies of similar high-risk sports and how participants in these manage their training and equipment to minimise risk to see if any of their approaches could transfer to motorcycling. Every chapter is loaded with simple tips and reminders you can try regardless of your riding experience.
