From now until June, every motorcyclist in the UK is being offered the unique opportunity of a free 60 minute skills and safety riding assessment, courtesy of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM).
Your bike may well have gone away for the winter, so before heading out ensure you’re both fit for the new season, with these tips on some basic preparation from the IAM’s director of standards Mark Lewis and a free ride check with #IAMRideFree.
“It’s also worth checking the brake light operation from all brake levers and pedals. Some modern machines will check bulbs automatically and display a warning if any are faulty.
Just a few simple steps can ensure you’re ready for a long season of riding, whatever the weather throws at us. Stay safe, enjoy it and if you have a friend you think could do with a refresher, let them know how they could ride free too.
